I Lost My Voice When The World Needed It Most —Davido



I Lost My Voice When The World Needed It Most —Davido

Not many people knew that Nigerian music star, Davido, at a point in his career lost his voice when the world needed it most.

For some years, Davido revealed that he has battled with his problem of losing his voice throughout his entire career but confessed that he has fully adjusted to coping and managing it.

The ‘Feel’ singer has always been criticised for his hazy and husky voice since he broke into the music industry with his single, Da Mi Duro, but he disclosed that he had to learn to deal with the problem and ensure that it doesn’t affect his music.

According to him: “Because my voice is already husky, when my voice goes, it’s so annoying. I like to express myself and I speak a lot, so when I can’t talk, it’s annoying. It’s so uncomfortable when I have a show and my voice is not back, and I’m impatient, so I’ll just be coughing.”

Speaking in an interview with ‘Native Now by The Native’ platform and monitored by R on Friday, Davido stated that he had gone through a lot of hard times and difficult moments in life but his new album, ‘Timeless’ was all he needed to get back on track and start making sense of his career once again.

On the Timeless concert which took place in Lagos, he said: “You have to be really, really loved for people to come to TBS—on a rainy day again. I wasn’t worried about people coming out, I was more worried about delivering the production that we had worked so hard on. We just wanted everything to go right, that’s really what I was banking on. I would say about 70 per cent of what we planned went right and that’s really good for Nigeria.”

In a related development, Davido in the last 72 hours has been in the eye of the storm following his comment during an interview where he described himself and Wizkid as pioneers of the new Afrobeat success and paved way for Burna Boy, Kizz Daniel, Rema and others, who he described as new cats on the African music scene.

Some of his fans were quick to defend his position and justified his claim but his critics and supporters of Burna Boy and Olamide wouldn’t let what they termed as subtle shade pass.

Some of them took to social media platforms, saying Burna Boy will remain the greatest African artiste because of one factor- Grammy Award. One of them told him: “When you finally win one, come back and engage us about who is the biggest and who paved the way for others. Until then, keep shut and face your music.”
