David Adeleke, nicknamed Davido, a Nigerian afrobeats singer, sparked controversy by omitting Fireboy DML, Tems, and Omah Lay from his list of the “next big 5” Nigerian musicians who would rule the music industry.
During a recent interview with Omega, Davido was questioned regarding the upcoming top five Nigerian musicians.
“I would say like the next big five,” he replied. Rema, who has the “Calm Down” record, Buju (BNXN), Ayra Starr, etc.Victony, in my opinion. I don’t want Jones at all. Okay, let’s go as follows. Asake, Rema, and Buju make up the trio; I’d place him and Rema at the top.Ruger and Ayra Star.
“The future of afrobeats is crazy, in my opinion.”
Fans criticized Davido on social media for leaving out Fireboy, Tems, and Omah Lay in response to his list.
Fireboy is a vulcanizer, Abi? a fan named MaqOlaoluwa1 tweeted. There is too much talking.
“I’m 30BG,” another follower @Micheal2272na remarked. Davido needs to cool down, buh. He requires instruction in conducting interviews.
“OMAH LAY!! “, posted @Mizta_Kings. Why doesn’t anyone identify this young man?
