Davido reveals why he always sings about ladies

Davido reveals why he always sings about ladies

David Adedeji Adeleke, known in showbiz as Davido has disclosed the reason he mostly sings about ladies, saying it’s as a result of how he was raised.

In an interview with Okay Africa, the afro-pop star said his music is influenced by his upbringing.

“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,” he noted.

“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.”

The musician further indicated that his major priority is to communicate the richness of the African continent to the world although he grew up listening to 50 Cent, T.I and the likes.

He mentioned that he first experimented with making hip-hop music, influenced by his summers spent in Atlanta. However, one trip back home to Lagos for Christmas stirred his music in a different direction.

“I was making American rap and hip-hop music,” he said. “I didn’t really involve myself in African music until I went home in December after two years of being in America.”

“Christmas time in Nigeria, that’s like the main time and that’s the most popular time that’s the festive period. I went over and just fell in love with African music and just switched up. It only took one trip. I went home for about 10 days and just fell in love with the music and culture, and the artist were actually successful doing shows. One good thing about Nigeria is being an entertainer is a very lucrative job to have. They are known and big like other artists are. It’s crazy.”

Last year, Davido became the first African artist to receive an award at the BET Awards main stage. During his acceptance speech, he mentioned that his “continent has been so blessed to influence so many cultures,” before going on to encourage the audience to come to Africa.
