Nigerian pop star,Davido, is one of the biggest things to have happened to the Nigerian music industry. The talented superstar does not intend to stop pushing for more global recognition as he was currently a guest on one of the top radio stations in New York City.
The music act who is currently on a promo run in the US recently shared a series of video clips from his Siriusxm radio interview on his Instagram story. The singer talked about everything from his music to love and family.
Answering a question that bothered on how he felt about being able to cross over to mainstream radio, he revealed that it was quite an exciting feeling for him. He added that the irony of the matter was anchored in the fact that the whole time he tried to make his crossover into mainstream radio, his efforts were futile.
However, at a time when he had stopped trying, he started to get his breakthrough into the international music scene. He said it was never as if he did not get to perform in foreign countries, but such shows were mostly attended by Africans in the abroad. Things have, however, taken a new turn.
When asked about how he has been able to use his international attention to bring awareness to his country, he said that people across the world already knew about Nigeria, however, he added that if there was anything good happening about his country, he would surely have something to do with it.
Davido when asked if he was engaged, he said that he was not but was quick to add that he had a girlfriend and they have been together for five years. When the interviewer made a casual remark that he should already be engaged to his lover, he said that his lover had an understanding of how demanding the music industry could get.
On how his children are able to handle his celebrity status, the proud father revealed that only one of his daughter, Imade, who resides in Nigeria, was fully aware of his superstar status as she often made remarks about her daddy being the popular Davido. His other daughter who lives in the US, according to the celebrity dad, was not entirely aware of how big her dad is.
The talented act added in his Instastory that he was going to be visiting another radio station on the day two of his US promo run.
