‘Many people thought I would be a failed musician’ – Davido reflects on career strides
Award-winning Nigerian singer, Davido, recently said that many people thought he would not go far as a musician due to his wealthy background.
The singer reflected on his career strides among other issues when he featured on a recent episode of ‘BitarSweet‘, a show on UK-based Beat FM.
When asked which was his best moment on stage since he came into the limelight, Davido said his most memorable experience on stage was on the occasion of his 10-year anniversary concert held in December last year.
The 29-year-old disclosed that the concert made him to further appreciate how he has been able to brace the odds in the music landscape.
Davido said when he started out as a singer, some people predicted that he would quit music after putting out two or three songs.
In his words;
“I have had a lot (of great memories) man. But my 10-year concert in Lagos last year was amazing. I walked off the stage and felt I have done well for myself. During the concert, I met a lot of people that I have come across in the last 10 years, everyone that I have helped or worked with.”
“Everybody just came together and I saw joy in that room…they were like this dude really beat the odds. I was predicted to probably have one or two songs because my daddy has money. Some said ‘he’s going to do two or three songs and we’re going to push him out of the way.”
“But 11 years later, I defeated them and I’m not even 30 yet. So, the experience really touched me.”
Davido has established himself as a household name in the global music industry with numerous hit projects.
Safe to mention that he recorded another career stride recently by selling-out London’s O2 Arena for the second time.
