Nigerian award-winning singer, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido, says he deserves his recent recognition by Forbes as “King of afrobeats”.
The father of three said he was always spreading the gospel of African culture; through the food and fashion.
OBO stated this in a recent interview with Billboard News, where he claimed he was one of the first afrobeats artists to get signed by a major international record label.
Asked how he feels being called the “King of afrobeats” by Forbes, Davido said, “I mean, it’s true. I have lived in both places; I have lived in America. I went to school right here too, in Alabama. I was always spreading the gospel of African culture; the food, fashion.
“So, when it was time to do music, my dream was always the crossover; ‘When will that crossover happen?’ And you know, I was one of the first to get signed by a major label.”
