Davido, rated among the A-list artistes in Nigeria, has revealed how he got the inspiration that led to his first hit song, ‘Dami Duro’.
Speaking during the third edition of Nigerian Entertainment Conference which took place on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at the Eko Hotel and Suites, the ‘Aye’ singer, who teamed up with Shizzi (his producer) to produce a song live gave an insight about how his encounter with the Police inspired him to record the song, ‘Dami Duro.’
‘The day I made Dami Duro, I had just come out from the Police station, most of all the songs I do are from the things that happen to me and inspire me in the society.’
‘Dami Duro’, which paved the way for the Osun State- born singer, was well-received throughout Nigeria and beyond after it was released in 2011.
Davido, who has been buzzing in the Nigerian entertainment industry and across Africa since then, released his debut album, Omo Baba Olowo in 2012. The album has singles like – ‘Back When’ featuring Naeto C, ‘Dami Duro’, ‘All of You’, ‘Overseas’ featuring Sina Rambo, ‘Ekuro’, ‘Gbon Gbon’ and ‘Feel Alright’ featuring Ice Prince.
The singer also went ahead to release more singles such as ‘Gobe’, ‘One of a Kind’, ‘Skelewu’, ‘Aye’, ‘Tchelete (Goodlife)’, ‘Naughty’ and ‘Owo Ni Koko,’ all of which are expected to make up his upcoming album, earlier slated to be released in the fourth quarter of 2014, along with other unreleased materials.
The album release date was shifted to Monday, June 8, 2015, a date he confirmed at the 2015 edition of NECLIVE.
