Let’s talk about Davido music career a bit.
Davido started working on his debut studio album “Omo Baba Olowo” in 2011. The album’s music is a mixture of Afrobeats and hip hop. It received generally negative reviews from music critics, who panned its lyrical content and Davido’s songwriting. However, the album won Best R&B/Pop Album and received a nomination for Album of the Year at The Headies 2013. It was also nominated for Best Album of the Year at the 2013 Nigeria Entertainment Awards.
On February 25, 2013, Davido released the Shizzi-produced track “Gobe“. It was ranked second on Premium Times’ list of the Top 10 songs of 2013.

In February 2019, it became the longest-charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history. “Fall” was ranked at number 163 on Pitchfork’s list of the 200 Best Songs of the 2010s. In December 2018, “Fall” video surpassed 100 million views, becoming the most-viewed video by a Nigerian artist on YouTube.
Davido released “Fia” on November 10, 2017.The song was described as a neo-highlife track. “Fia” was nominated for Best Pop Single and Song of the Year at The Headies 2018.
Davido released “Assurance” on April 30, 2018. He dedicated the track to his girlfriend and released it to coincide with her 23rd birthday. Davido won Best International Act at the 2018 BET Awards, becoming the first African artist to receive his award on the main stage.

Davido’s second studio album “A Good Time” was released on November 22, 2019. The album features the previously released singles “If”, “Fall”, “Assurance”, “Blow My Mind” and “Risky”.
In May 2020, Davido announced that his third studio album would be titled “A Better Time”, and that it would include 11 tracks, with features from Nicki Minaj and Tiwa Savage.
On 10 September 2020, Davido returned with the single, “FEM“, alongside its music video..an alleged diss track to Burnaboy.
Since then till this very moment, David haven’t release anything reasonable. Jumping from one wack to to another. No hit, no award, nothing nothing! Wizkid, Burnaboy have left him behind.
Obviously, his career is dying off. Someone said maybe the Native doctor that prepared jazz for him died. Lol I don’t wanna believe that tho. Hahaha.
