About Davido:

2019 was a phenomenal year for Davido. Kickstarting with a sold out date at London’s prestigious O2 Arena, his massive single “Fall,” infiltrating Billboard’s Hot R&B chart, going on to be noted as the longest charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history, as well as being one of America’s most Shazamed songs of this year. The accompanying video broke a further record as the first by a Nigerian artist to break through the 100 million views mark on YouTube, standing now at a staggering 159 million views and counting. This summer has seen him as a headline across some of the world’s biggest festivals including Amsterdam’s Oh My Festival, Portugal’s first ever AfroNation and Dubai’s 1Africa Festival.

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 2016 Son Of Mercy EP continued his elevation and would see further global collaborations with DJ Snake, Trey Songz, Tory Lanez, Meek Mill, Tinashe, Olamide and more. With a discography attesting to over 251 million global streams and 400 million video views, the Afrobeats forerunner has very much established himself as a force to be reckoned with.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Nigeria, 26-year-old Davido (real name David Adedeji Adeleke) 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.”
