Man sings Davido’s praises. In the spirit of Davido’s return, Netizens chose to share their various encounters with the singer. A man who identifies as @JoeyAkpan on Twitter gave a detailed encounter the first time he met David. And like many people, he shared his encounter, while others followed suit.
According to Joey, “During the early stages of building Afrobeats Intelligence, I was seeking an interview for the platform. Davido was in the thick of his global campaign for a Better Time. And had spent the entire day in the US shuffling many media houses”.
He continued. “I had called his people for an interview at the end of the day, with Davido drained of every energy. You could hear the strain in his voice. But once he heard it was me, he quickly snapped back into action, telling his people. “I don do American interviews, Na my Nigerian brother own, make we do am”.
“He proceeded to stay on the phone with me for over an hour, talking about music, process, creativity, and breaking new markets. I was touched. He could have rescheduled, but he didn’t. He was dope, and the interview numbers helped my fledging platform”.
Meanwhile, “I was touched by his gesture because my platform was new and unknown. And could provide little leverage as justification for that interview. But I needed it back then, and he came through for me. For that act alone, inconveniencing himself for me, I rate him as a person”
So many other amazing stories about Davido’s impact on their lives were shared. Which goes to show why he’s loved the way he is. Despite his absence in the media space, David continues to show generosity.
