Davido 001

Right from time immemorial, most artiste are always in charge of their song creation. From the recording of lyrics to the final input, the artiste is the executive producer of his work.

However, we've witnessed artistes selling songs or co-writing songs for each other. Beyonce bought the smash hit "Irreplaceable" from NeyoRihanna got "Diamond" from Sia and the list is endless.

However, back here in Nigeria, the case is different. Most artistes write their songs as these artistes know what it takes after being bred and educated during their early years. But there are artistes who have to rely entirely on the output of their ghostwriters and songwriters for them to make any meaningful music.

Example of such is Davido (No Offence).

Let's see scenarios where Davido has had to rely on his ghostwriters.

1. AYE

Davido Runtown

Davido's 2014 hit was written by Runtown. Even though Runtown had denied it, everything about the song speaks Runtown.

From the lyrics to the producer which was Tspize, Runtown's favorite producer, the sing was 100% Runtown hands down.

Song writing is a form of art. Every single hit you have ever heard has an input of more than a person. Even the old greats bought songs off people. Your delivery as an artist puts the lyrics on a different dimension. He(Davido) is good at what he does. Has he ever gone to a show or concert, and he forgot the lyrics to a song?Let him have fun. Its part of the game
