According to the DMW boss, who got signed to Sony Music in January 2015, he told Pulse TV that he is surprised that his fans are saying he has been quiet for so long. He also talked about his deal with the international record label, and his take on his successes so far in music.
“Why are people saying it’s taken forever, in fact, shey na only me never drop? Abeg, make them free me. I was cool, I was traveling, I doing things, I was recording, I was living life, I was in America. It kind of was very fast for me, because I was moving so much, I was just setting up plays. I was setting up plays for the future.
“I was hyped that they came to me,'” he said on the Sony Music Deal. “When they told me that this is going to happen, it’s a sacrifice that I had to make. I did so much in four years, I did a lot, every award, I have it.
“You will see, I can’t explain, you gotta see the work. At least I don’t have to pay for my videos again. I’m always thinking: ‘spending $250,000 on one video, that’s what I’ll never do. That’ll just take it to another level. I have creative control, it’s a joint thing. Most times, whatever I send them, they are ready to go.”
About his EP, Davido said the idea was to put out as much music as possible and that he needed to do an Extended Play first before releasing an album.
On judging his Success as a person, Davido says he is successful. In his words, “I am Bad! For me it’s just to keep going, help other people, drop the album, destroy. I love this my African thing. I love it. ”
Davido’s ‘Son of Mercy’ had some incredible international collaborations with Usher, Future, Popcaan, Young Thug, and more.
The 23-year old singer says starting all over again in the USA may be a bit challenging, however, considering his age, there is still time to restart on a new sheet.
Davido will now be more in the USA due to his international dealings, yet he says he loves Africa so much and is not leaving to anywhere, [figuratively]. His fans wish him the very best in his endeavors and anticipate ‘Son of Mercy.’
