David Adeleke aka Davido has gone from nobody to somebody in the Nigerian music industry in under a year. Back When he was broke all the girls used to wash On the beat... On the beat is Davido! More than opening lines to his smash hit debut currently tearing up club scenes all over Nigeria, 'Back When' (featuring Naeto C), also announces the deliverance of a rawly talented young man. Ladies and gentleman, Davido is here!
Born in Atlanta, Georgia (U.S.A), but brought up in Lagos, Nigeria; Davido has been producing music since the tender age of 13. After a few self-taught lessons in various studios, he began to explore the depths of music while in high-school as a member of a minor music group. Keeping his eyes firmly on the ball, Davido began lending his talents to many up and coming artists based in Nigeria including Dammy Krane, NPZ and more, truly defining the Afropop and Afrobeat sounds.
Being armed with such talent, today Davido is endorsed by the likes of African music kings D'banj and Don Jazzy, as well as new superstars Wizkid and Ice Prince. Being more than just a presence on a beat, the young man has executed the skills that have enabled collaborations with Nigerian household names, Naeto C and Lynxxx.
