Afrobeats music has been increasingly popular around the world, and well-known Nigerian musician Davido attributes this ascent to him and his collaborator Wizkid.
This statement was stated by the singer of “Timeless” in a recent interview with Brut, which greatly enraged music fans both in Nigeria and beyond.
He claimed that before other musicians whom he referred to as “new cats” joined the bandwagon, he and Wizkid were the pioneer artists who opened the path for the global recognition and success of Afrobeat music.
According to Davido, the foundation he and Wizkid previously established has benefited Grammy-winning musician Burna Boy as well as other new-school artists like Rema, Fireboy, Asake, and Mayorkun.
“Everyone is aware that Wizkid and I were among the first to become viral. It’s encouraging to see fresh artists like Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Rema, Asake, and Mayorkun on the rise, he added.
