In a resounding message to his critics and doubters, music sensation David Adeleke, widely known as Davido, is basking in the glow of success, having recently conquered the iconic 02 Arena in London. The Afrobeat star took to social media to address naysayers and those who underestimated him, delivering a powerful message with a stern warning.
Davido, who has been riding high on the success of his comeback album, “Timeless,” highlighted his achievements and victories, emphasizing that he’s not one to be underestimated. The singer recounted how skeptics once mocked him for lacking a Grammy nomination, a Billboard Hot 100 entry, UK Certification, and reaching 100 million streams on Spotify. However, he proudly declared that he has proven them wrong on every front.
As he reflected on his journey, Davido urged his haters to refrain from daring him, asserting that he will not only relegate their favorites but also lock up the city. He emphasized the importance of not playing with God and underlined his resilience in the face of skepticism.
Since the release of “Timeless,” Davido’s album has soared to over a billion streams, bringing him renewed recognition and earning him a coveted Grammy nomination. The album secured three nominations in the categories of Best Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Global Music Album at the 2024 Grammy Awards.
Speaking on the nomination, Davido emphasized the significance of perseverance, stating that delay isn’t denial, especially considering the recognition received by his contemporaries, Burna Boy and Wizkid, from the prestigious academy.
Davido’s impact goes beyond the music industry, as he was honored by Atlanta and Georgia with dedicated days of celebration. November 18th, 2023, was officially declared as Davido’s Day by Atlanta, while Fulton County, Georgia, marked November 21st, 2023, as Davido Appreciation Day. Additionally, the Georgia State Assembly recognized Davido as an “Outstanding Georgia Citizen.” The Afrobeat star’s journey of triumph continues, leaving an indelible mark on the global music landscape.
