My music had to inspire sober thoughts, not just fun — Davido

Popular Singer David Adeleke, aka Davido, says that since most of his songs have a feel-good vibe, he also makes music that will inspire sober thinking in people.

Speaking about what fans should expect from his next album during an interview with Apple Music’s The Dotty Show, the father-of-three said, “We’re bringing back original afrobeat music. We had fun doing it. I’m here to make you smile, dance and sometimes think. I feel like the album has a bit of everything. It’s more about bringing back the original Davido. Sure, there will be some features, but (that’s mostly about me).

The singer also shared that he had a great time collaborating with American rapper, Kanye West’s gospel band Sunday Service Choir on his new song called Stand Strong. Talking about how the collaboration came about, Davido said, “We were in Atlanta (United States of America) when he (Kanye West) was hosting release parties. From there, I met Jason (who works with Kanye), and we went to the studio, where I played some of my songs for them. Apparently, Stand Strong was the one for them. We then flew to Los Angeles to shoot the video. I also participated in some concerts with them. It was a different feeling and a different type of record. I don’t think I’ve ever released such a record. Curiously, my first songs, before afrobeat, were oriented towards RnB and soul music.
