“He may become one of the world’s biggest stars” Read what Rolling Stone Magazine has to say about Davido


There is no doubt that Davido has grown in so many ways in the past couple of years.

The HKN CEO has become a global sensation in the past couple of months – from getting featured in FADER magazine to performing at their concert – and now even Rolling Stone magazine has noticed the Nigerian pop star.

Davido was featured in an article related to the recently held Fader Fort event where RollingStone talks about the “25 Artists You Need To See”.

Talking about Davido, the magazine writes “Ever since he hit with 2012’s effusive “Dami Duro,” Davido has been one of Africa’s biggest rising stars. Now that he’s signed an international deal with Sony, it looks like he may become one of the world’s biggest, too. To American ears, his sound seems to split the difference between dance music’s uptempo beats, R&B melodies and hip-hop’s effortless swag. Yet it’s all incorporated through a sound that is distinctly African, with rhythms that prove to be more compulsively danceable than most things making waves on the Hot 100. His upcoming album Baddest — which he recently revealed to Fader will include a feature from rapper Future — will be a major test for African artists crossing over in the United States. But Davido is confident: “I know what kind of songs work. The music should have everything in it — Jamaican, African, American, everything.”

Check out the feature here.

    Bella eh! Did you expunge the song from Muna and Lambigini posted earlier? Did she plead with you to take it down as e no sweet? That style don’t suit you and you seriously need to stop. Davido has worked hard over the years and deserves the accolades.

    Americans know how to pump you up even at your own detriment. Davido, needs to become more original and creative. His lyrics and videos now are simply rubbish. He has foreign girls half naked and he claims he’s representing Africa. 2face, p square went mainstream and still managed to remain original. What the west are interested to see is, an artist from Nigeria, representing the people and culture as a whole not a wannabe, Black American

    Vanessa don shift focus from Genevieve to musicians like D’banj, Tiwa and now Davido. Vanessa, Mbok, do more work on Genevieve. Her recent movie scripts except RTY have been rubbish and the least challenging for her celebrity status and career. It’s even a shame that Genevieve has not covered Forbes Women or Forbes Magazine. Vanessa, you can manage these people without leaving another behind. Learn more on PR and work harder/smarter please. Love ya

    I don’t care what anybody says. Davido is a joke to me now when I look at the ordeal with his babymama. All that money and fame can’t buy class.

    I’m a Davido fan, I buy his music and I’ve seen him live before . Maybe I caught him on a bad day. Can he drop a full debut album first before all the hype .
