“Be original” — Davido’s advice for up-and-coming artists


Grammy-nominated Nigerian singer David Adeleke, aka Davido, has advised budding musicians to embrace originality in their artistic pursuits.

Taking a trip down memory lane, the OBO crooner recalled how he moved to Nigeria from the US to do music that was different from what the West was used to.

Davido said the uniqueness of his sound that he developed when he came to Nigeria ultimately brought him back to the United States as a superstar.

He urged up-and-coming artists to always stand out creatively.

In a video message shared via his X (formerly Twitter) handle on Friday, Davido said:

“I used to live in America. I could have just kept doing what everyone else is doing. My mission is to go back to my homeland (Nigeria) and represent the culture (Afrobeats). But in the end, that’s what brought me back here. But everyone else has their own path. The most important thing is to be original.”
