Davido recently spoke to America’s Cable News Network (CNN) from his Accra base where he said the Afrobeat genre is loved and patronized across the entire continent of Africa, and thus should be given the needed recognition by the international media.
The DMW executive said Africans have their own versions of mega-events such as America’s Super Bowl, which presents a major platform for entertainers to perform for their fans.
He then spoke about his newest single, “Champion Sound,” which preceded his birthday, and the corresponding fundraiser on Twitter which earned him more than 600,000 dollars.
Davido subsequently issued a press statement that all the donated money will be sent to orphanages across Nigeria.
“I always knew if people heard it, they would love it.”
