Popular Nigerian singer Davido Adeleke aka Davido is currently the rave of the moment on social media. Interestingly, Davido has become the topic of discussion on several social media platforms not only because of his music but how he remains selfless and committed to helping others in the industry succeed.
The singer who is known for his popular saying "we rise by lifting others" does not just offer the words but ensures that his actions are entirely in tandem.
In recognition of the music superstar's contributions, We compiled a list featuring eight entertainers in the music industry whose careers have significantly benefited from Davido's benevolence.
The singer helped some of these singers by featuring on their songs and also making appearances in their music videos, while he helped a few others gain limelight.
Check them out below:
Popular Nigerian singer Tekno is among those who have benefited from Davido especially in terms of a collaborative project.
Tekno became known and loved by music lovers after Davido featured in his 2014 hit single, Holiday. Davido's star power heavily rode the song into the hearts of thousands of music lovers and made them fall in love with the equally talented Tekno.
The music producer had been making strides in his career as he already had a working history with music superstars like Orezi, Wizkid, among others. However, when Kiddominant produced Davido's 2017 fall, he got a whole new level of recognition at home and abroad. So huge was the song that it also scored Kiddominant a Headies award for best producer.
3. Lil Kesh
The YBNL act was no doubt a rave of the moment and doing massively well under the Olamide owned record label. One of his debut singles that positioned him in the industry was his 2014 single, Shoki.
With the song doing huge numbers and music lovers paying attention to him, everything was multiplied after Davido graciously featured on the remix of the song. It was no doubt one of the biggest collaborations at the time.
Unlike the above listed, Mayorkun owes his entire success in the music industry to Davido. The young Mayorkun got the attention of Davido after making a cover of his song that went viral on social media.
Upon seeing the video after so much outcry by social media users, Davido signed Mayorkun to DMW. Ever since, it has been hit songs upon hit songs. Davido once disclosed that signing Mayorkun to his label was one of the best decisions he ever made.
5. Sauce Kid
This is another significant move that Davido made in the music industry that made people fall in love with him all over. Sauce Kid had just been released from a United States prison after completing his two-year jail term for aggravated identity theft.
Not minding what people would say, Davido opened his arms wide to Sauce Kid and signed him to the DMW family.
6. Lil Frosh
Like Mayorkun, this is another artiste who owes his career in the music industry to Davido. The youngster had gotten the attention of Nigerians on social media after some of his rap videos went viral.
Shortly after, Davido opened up his arms to him and warmly welcomed him into the music industry.
The youngster and singer who was formerly affiliated to Olamide owned YBNL records is also one that has greatly benefited from Davido.
After ending things on a bad note with Olamide and trying to find his feet in the industry again, Davido graciously agreed to feature on his comeback singer Monalisa. Davido also played a huge role in the music video of the song.
8. Cynthia Morgan
The latest artiste to have enjoyed a boost in music career by Davido is reggae/dancehall artist Cynthia Morgan.
Just recently, Cynthia Morgan gained the empathy of thousands of Nigerians on social media after she came out of a hiatus and revealed that she has actually been battling an illness. In addition, the singer also narrated her ordeal with Jude Okoye which left her career completely crippled.
Shortly after Cynthia's outcry, Davido in a series of Twitter posts reached out to the singer. Davido mentioned that she should call him and also added that he had a track they could both work on.
The Blow My Mind crooner extended a helping hand not minding the fact that Cynthia Morgan had heavily criticized him in the past when she was still a rave of the moment.
