Well-known Nigerian superstar David Adeleke also known as Davido has said that he is the king of Afrobeat in Africa.
During an interview with Billboard News, Davido disclosed that he deserves the title “King of Afrobeats” given to him by Forbes.
Speaking about how he has contributed to the promotion of Afrobeats, Davido disclosed that he has been spreading and preaching about the rich culture of Africa in the Westernland.
When asked how it feels to be referred to as the “King of Afrobeat” by Forbes in an interview with Billboard News, Davido said:
“I mean, it’s true. I have lived in both places; I have lived in America. I went to school right here too, in Alabama. I was always spreading the gospel of African culture; food, and fashion.
“So, when it was time to do music, my dream was always the crossover; ‘When will that crossover happen?’ And you know, I was one of the first to get signed by a major label.”
