Davido is a performing and recording artiste and also a music producer.
He has been performing and making music since the age of 11 and at 18, he has set up a record label called HKN Music.
In a short space of time, Davido has developed a huge fan base worldwide and the young fresh talent’s first single “Back When” featuring Naeto C, enjoyed massive media attention and airplay online, on radio and TV. Within no time Davido took us by storm when he released Dami Duro, which has been said to be one of Nigeria’s biggest hits ever. Without a doubt, dami duro has become a leading club song as well as one of radio’s most played songs.
As a versatile artiste, Davido is able to adapt to a variety of beats produced by other producers. However, this is a craft he has succeeded in mastering himself and has produced numerous jams for himself and other artists.
Often asked where his inspiration as a producer comes from, David explains “… I like it when people are happy and when they can dance to my music!”
In January 2016, Davido announced via Twitter that he signed a record deal with Sony BMG.
