Why I am king of Afrobeats – Nigerian Singer Davido brags (video)
Superstar afrobeats musician, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido has stated that he is deserving of the title “King of Afrobeats” that Forbes recently gave him.
He claims that the fame is no accident because it has always been his goal for the afrobeats genre to gain popularity in the Western world.
Davido asserted that he was among the first Afrobeats musicians to be signed by a significant global record label.
“I mean, it’s true. I have lived in both places; I have lived in America. I went to school right here too, in Alabama. I was always spreading the gospel of African culture; the food, fashion.
“So, when it was time to do music, my dream was always the crossover; ‘When will that crossover happen?’ And you know, I was one of the first to get signed by a major label.”
