Popular singer, Davido has said some people do not support him because his dad is rich.
He blasted his haters who persistently blast his music without thinking about the amount of effort he puts into releasing hit songs yearly.
In the now-viral clip, Davido said, “Yes I want to thank all my brothers and sisters, my fans, people that have supported me. I am already used to this industry. Seven years now and nobody supports me, its just hate, from morning till night. because of what? my papa get money (sic). I work hard, i deliver hits. I take care of my people. So if you have a problem with me, suck ma d**k.”
These words are his reaction to Nigerians criticizing his recent music featuring Chris Brown titled “Bloy my mind.”
He has also been slammed for being shunned by Beyonce after she released her new album.
Beyonce featured the likes of Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Mr. Eazi, Burna Boy, Shatta Wale, and Tekno, but ignored Davido.

In January 2016, Davido announced on Twitter that he signed a record deal with Sony Music. His announcement was met with mixed reactions. The record label put out a press release to confirm the deal. Few months after signing with Sony, Davido founded the Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) record label. Dremo and Mayorkun are currently signed to the label. In July 2016, Davido signed a record deal with Sony’s RCA Records.

He released five singles in 2017 after restructuring his contract, including “If” and “Fall”. The former generated worldwide social media activity, while the latter became the longest-charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history.
