“When I heard back when I thought Davido was going to be the next me because he sang and produced the song.

“Just go to Davido’s Instagram page or Twitter page, you will understand the passion this guy has for music. This guy wants to work, he loves the music thing.

Currently, there is money, he has a private jet. If he stops today, he is still going to fly a private jet and he will still be fine.”

Davido earned his first-ever nomination for the prestigious awards after he bagged three categories, including ‘Best Global Album’ for his latest album, ‘Timeless’.
