I have the phone numbers of 13 presidents was a bragging right statement made by Davido in an interview with MTV Base. It speaks volume, isn’t it? When you’re sure to have clear and meaningful reason to do whatever you are doing, chances of shooting to platinum height is 101% guaranteed depending the amount of efforts, hard work, consistency, creative and smartness attached to your field of endeavor.
Nigerian singer, David Adedeji Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido reveals how significant he has become from the release of his magic wand single “dami duri” some years back. In his submissions, though his dad wasn’t in favor of him pursuing a career in music, he proved his worth with his groundbreaking single “dami duro” and that was his breakthrough.
According to him; “When I released the song back then, I did not know that it was going to be that big. Then I went back to school and the love that I was shown was overwhelming, let alone the way girls began to treat me.
That one song with the video made my father realise that I had the talent. And then, I did the song, ‘Dami Duro’. The song became so big and I remember that the President at the time called my father to talk about me and the song.
Even during my father’s business meetings with his friends, they would mention my name and the song. Before long, I started travelling and doing shows around the world.
Now I have the numbers of about 13 presidents on my phone and if I call them, they would answer the call. Then the award came and it set me on another level.”
I can proudly say Davido is soaring higher on another level.
