Davido Reveals How He Was Pressured To Change His Style of Music

David ‘Davido’ Adeleke has revealed that his handlers wanted him to change his sound after signing an international record deal with Sony Music in 2016.

The singer said he was informed that his music would not sell outside Africa should he fail to make his sound more universally appealing.

Davido said that at the turn of the new year, he begged and fought to make the music his fans have come to expect of him.

In a post on his Instagram page on Thursday, the singer said his new single IF is now the number one song in Africa.

He also uses American R&B Pop singer Omarion to prove his point, as he shares a video of the ‘Post to be’ crooner grooving to his song ‘IF’ on Instagram.

“The bro omarion feeling da ‘IF’ vibes! All last year , they tried to change my sound .. saying staying true to my culture wouldn’t work for me outside Africa! This year I fought and pleaded for ‘them’ to allow me make the music I know how to make and now see what’s happened!! MUSIC AINT GOT A LANGUAGE !! NOW I GOT THE BIGGEST SONG IN AFRICA ONCE AGAIN! THANK TO JAH!!,” Davido writes enthusiastically on his page.”
