Davido (born David Adeleke) is a performing and recording artiste and also a music producer. Davido was born in Atlanta GA, USA on November 21st to Mr And Mrs Adeleke and attended The British International School, Lagos. Travelling between the USA, the UK and Nigeria, Davido has experienced different cultures but still stays true to his roots and this is evident in his music and the people he considers his biggest influences musically, which include Don Jazzy, 2 Face idibia, Sound Sultan and Wande Coal. Though Davido started music professionally a year ago, he has been performing and making music since the age of 11. He set up a record label called HKN Music, jointly owned by Davido and Ade, his older brother.
The saying “If you want something done, do it yourself” is what led the brothers start the label as Davido believes that as a producer and recording artiste, he would be in the best position to create music that suits his style. When asked to choose an ideal producer to work with, he responded “…myself, because I knowwhat I want exactly!” He is however quick to mention that he would definitely be excited to work with Sarz, Jaysleek and/or Don Jazzy. In a short space of time, Davido has developed a huge fan base (14 to 28 year olds) in Nigeria, the US and the UK and the young fresh talent’s first single “Back When” featuring Naeto C, is enjoying massive media attention and airplay online, on radio and TV.
In his own words, his greatest reward so far is “having my family and friends support my dream. I can’t ask God for more”. Within no time Davido took us by storm when he released Dami Duro , which has been said to be one of Nigerians top hits ever made. Without a doubt, Dami Duro has become a leading club song as well as one of radios most played. Without wasting much time, Davido and his management team, in collaboration with Clarence Peters, put together a first-class, never seen before type video, to back up the banger, Dami Duro. Not only did this video create major buzz around websites, TV stations and youtube, but was also said to be one of the best videos out of Nigeria. Without saying much, it is evident that Davido is one to watch out for in 2012! He is evidently here to stay, and deliver.
Davido had a very eventful Christmas (2011) season performing all over Nigeria. He had amazing performances at shows like the Kokoconcert, Rhythm Unplugged, Echo 2011, Access Bank End of year Party and the Sahara End of year concert. Davido admits that his love for entertaining people comes from his late mother who passed away in 2003. He said losing his mother has been the most traumatic experience he has had to suffer but it has also been his inspiration as he states “…she’s the reason I do what I do…. she loved to entertain and I plan on carrying that legacy…”
With collaborations with artistes likeNaeto C, Shank, Lynxxx and popular UK artiste, Dotstar, Davido is set to prove to the music industry that he has what it takes to succeed. He has also shared stages with people like T-Pain, Fabulous, Keith Sweat, Cabo Snoop, D’Banj, Naeto C and more. As a versatile artiste, Davido is able to adapt to any beat produced by other producers. However, this is a craft he has succeeded in mastering and with help from his brother Ade, HKN Studios would be a force to reckon with in the Nigerian Music scene.
Often asked where his inspiration as a producer comes from, David explains “… I like it when people are happy and when they can dance to my music! My mom liked to dance to music and I am inspired when I think of the kind of beats that would make her dance” His debut single “Back When” featuring Naeto C is a testament to Davido’s ability and skill as a producer. He has also produced music for … Naeto C, Skales, Tiwa Savage and Sauce Kid. So, the next time you are dancing to a well made beat, pay attention because you might just hear “on the beat its Davido”… A signature that will be heard on chart-topping songs for a very long time!
