My new album ‘Timeless’ was either going to make, break me – Davido
Nigerian afrobeats superstar David Adeleke, aka Davido, has stated that his latest album, ‘Timeless, was his last chance to deliver an acceptable album.
Speaking as a guest on the recent episode of the +44 podcast, Davido said the 17-track album was either going to make or break him.
The "Assurance" crooner said he was elated that fans finally accepted his album at the fourth time of asking.
He said, “This is me telling myself the truth; this album was either going to make me or break me." People don’t want to say it to me in my face. But everybody knows the truth about the situation that is happening in their lives, whether they want to lie to them or not.
“There were situations when I was recording this album I was like ‘mehn! I’m going to go like this, I’m going to go like this?’
“So, when I slept and I woke up, my phone was not with me, so I was going crazy." I sent everybody away an hour before the album came out, I did my prayers, and I laid down on my bed and slept. I have now overslept.
“I wanted to just sleep for like an hour and thirty minutes so that we could celebrate. I have now overslept. Woke up by 3am. I said "Ye!" I was looking for my phone because I have a big suite. I went to the living room, but there wasn’t anybody in my room celebrating. I was scared, like, Wetting dey happen na?’.
“So, I ran downstairs, and I banged on my assistant’s door, asking, What’s going on?’. He said, ‘Oga, take your phone; congratulations’.”
