He might be buzzing now as much as he wants, but Nigerian music star, Davido, has come out to say that was not the case not so long ago. According to the DMW boss, he had to stop recording the type of songs Sony Music wanted because those songs did not resonate with him. While revealing for the first time that he did not pick the songs that made the cut for his 2016 extended playlist, Son of Mercy, Davido said he recorded it at a time when he was struggling for hit songs.
“Nah, the EP was s**t. The songs were not picked by me, I wasn’t in the right place,” he said in an interview with Native Magazine before adding: “I knew myself. I was like, ‘this is not Davido’.
My career has always been on fire at all times, [‘till then] there was never a time that I didn’t have a hit out, and that time I didn’t have a hit. “So I called Sony up, and I told them look, you have to let me do what I want to do.
That’s what inspired Back to Basics. First, I had to stop making the music that they (SONY) wanted me to make. “So I came back to Nigeria to record a couple of songs. That’s when I recorded ‘IF’ with Tekno.” The 25-year-old music superstar said he plans to retire by the time he is 30 as he does not plan to be actively making music by the time he is 30 years old.
