Famous musician, Davido is challenging Femi Kuti over the king of Afrobeat.
Davido said: “I deserve my recent recognition by Forbes as “King of Afrobeats” because it has always been my dream to see the genre become mainstream in the western world.”
“I am one of the first afrobeats artists to get signed by a major international record label.”
“As regards how I feel being called the “King of afrobeats” by Forbes, it’s true. I have lived in both places; I have lived in America.”
“I went to school right here too, in Alabama. I was always spreading the gospel of African culture; the food, fashion.”
“So, when it was time to do music, my dream was always the crossover; ‘When will that crossover happen?’ And you know, I was one of the first to get signed by a major label.”
