Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Nigeria, 27-year-old Davido (real name David Adedeji Ad-eleke) has been a champion for the continent of Africa. He chose to chase his music dreams and whilst doing so earned over 30 awards including a MOBO for Best African Act, MTV EMA for Best International Act, three MTV Africa Music Awards, two BET Awards and two Nigerian Teen Choice Awards for “Top Featured Artist” and “Choice Male Artist.”
With an unmatched work rate, Davido has delivered back to back hits since his musical debut in 2011. Breaking out with successive singles “Back When,” “Dami Duro,” “Gobe,” “Aye” and “Skelewu,” the latter would enjoy attention from Major Lazer and Wiwek who went on to remix the single. His musical elevation would see further global collaborations with Chris Brown, Pop Smoke, Summer Walker, Young Thug, Mayorkun and more. Davido kick-started last year with a sold-out date at London’s prestigious O2 Arena, becoming the first solo African artist to do this. He created waves across America with his smash hit single “Fall” which is certified gold in the US and in Canada.
With a discography attesting to over a billion global streams and 400 million video views, the Afrobeats forerunner has very much established himself as a force to be reckoned with.
