“All Musicians From Around The World Will Be From Africa” – Davido
David Adedeji Adeleke, better known as Davido, has revealed his plan to build music schools across Africa, in order to make all the musicians from around come from Africa.
Davido during an interview with okay Africa stated that his motive and vision is to see music artistes all over the world come from Africa.
In his words:
“My plan is to build music schools all around, before you know it all the musicians from around the world will be from Africa. Because they love us and you have to have the talent to play instruments. Not everything is digital, so not understanding everything, that’s the main thing.”
Davido also confirms that his music is not philosophical but based on how he was raised and being authentic about what he knows. In his words:
Like rappers, they are rapping about what they are going through—drugs, their past life or whatever. I’m singing about what I know, which is I grew up happy, and being Nigerian. Most of my music is about girls. I have two daughters and most of the people around me are females. So that’s what I sing about because that’s what I experienced. It’s not really a philosophy, it’s just making music based off of how I was raised and being authentic to that.
