2017 has been a phenomenal year for Columbia Records/Sony Music artist DAVIDO. February saw the release of ‘If’, produced by fellow Afrobeats star – Tekno, it shot to the no.1 spot in over 9 countries and dominated radio and clubs across the globe. The summer smash ‘Fall’ followed and he maintained the No.1 position in the Nigerian, Kenyan and South African charts. Championed here in the UK by the likes of DJ Neptizzle (Rinse FM), DJ Abrantee (Capital Xtra) and DJ Edu (BBC Radio 1Xtra/Radio 1), this has solidified his position as the King of modern Afrobeats.
