Asa Asika also went on to Instagram to post a welcome to the Plug picture of Davido:
Personally, the only problem I have with artists moving from one manager to another is that it sometimes affect their consistency and music delivery. Everyone has their own way of doing things or managing talent to be specific. If a particular direction taken is not in-line with the artist’s vision, style, and growth, then we could see a whole lot get affected.
We’ve seen this happen with a number of big names in the industry, let us hope the coming together of these two individuals will deliver more hits and growth, than anything else.
