People always doubted my albums – Davido
Nigerian singer David Adeleke, aka Davido, has recounted his struggles with getting fans to accept his albums.
He said he was elated by the positive reception being given to his latest album, ‘Timeless, after 12 years on stage.
Davido spoke in the recent episode of the Afrobeats Podcast, hosted by Adesope Olajide.
He said, “I’m happy that people accepted "Timeless." They have always doubted my albums. It’s a different feeling for me because people have never accepted my albums and they did with this one. This is a fresh feeling for me after my 12 years of killing sh*t!”
“I haven’t felt this much love before. It’s crazy, bro,” the DMW boss added.
Naijacrawl reported that Davido’s fourth studio album, "Timeless," has been breaking streaming records since its release.
The 17-track album broke the record as the first African album to reach Number 1 on the US iTunes chart.
It is also the highest charting album by an African artist on US Apple Music (it peaked at Number 2) and the biggest album first-day stream in the history of Audiomack.
Davido’s 2012 debut album ‘Omo Baba Olowo’, his 2019 sophomore album ‘A Good Time, and his 2020 third studio album ‘A Better Time’ were all tagged “flops” by critics.
The singer was accused of stat padding by including “old singles” in his albums, especially on the 2019 album ‘A Good Time, which contained ‘If’ and ‘Fall, which were released two years earlier.
