Davido has revealed the beauty of ‘Afrobeats’ sound and also clarified the issue of his birthday fundraising.
In a recent zoom interview with CNN, the afrobeats superstar explained why ‘Afrobeats’ genre is special for those who don’t know pretty much about it.
According to Davido, Afrobeats is one music genre with a distinctly lovable sound which symbolises the entirety of the African continent.
“I mean it has a story behind it. Apart from the fact that it’s rich music, it represents a whole culture. It represents a whole continent which is Africa. I grew up on hip hop. I used to love hip hop.
“But I used to play Afrobeats when I was in Alabama. My Caucasian friends and American friends will be like, “Yo! What’s that? I like that sound.”
“So, I always knew that when people heard it, they’d love it”, he said.
While addressing his birthday fundraising, the “Jowo” singer said it started out as a joke since he had a bet with his friends and more importantly, he never asked fans to donate but his ‘friends/colleagues’.
Although, the fans eventually hopped on occasion and began to send their ‘widow’s might’ which he of course appreciated.

“Nah! I actually didn’t ask my fans to donate. I actually asked my friends, like my colleagues. It was like a joke. I was like, “Yo! If I ever gave you a hit song or I ever featured in your song or if you’re my friend, send me a million naira”, which is equivalent to like $2200 or so.
“So, it was like a joke. So my friends started sending me money. Then, after a while I started seeing like crazy numbers on my account.
“Then I started noticing like regular people like fans had started sending me money too.
“The amount I got was over like $602,000 (six hundred and two thousand dollars).
“Honestly me and my friends made a bet that if I do that, I’ll probably get like at most, best case $50,000 or $60,000.
“It went on to show that my work which I’ve done over the years is being appreciated”, said Davido.
