Popular Nigerian singer David Adeleke aka Davido is no doubt one of the biggest artistes in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
Despite having a humble beginning in the industry, Davido has managed to build his way to the top even when critics continue to claim that it is only his father’s wealthy status that pushed him to the top.
However, what the singer has proved to is naysayers over the past few years is the fact that it takes a whole more than coming from a wealthy family, to become a hugely celebrated superstar within and outside Africa.
Apart from the music, Davido has remained one of the musicians who remain committed to his words. The singer is known for his popular saying “we rise by lifting others” has made it a point of duty to always live by his words.
Davido’s ride to the top has also come with him helping others in an industry that is tough and generally populated by self-absorbed superstars who do little or less in extending a helping hand to others in need of support.
The singer has helped to launch the careers of some of the biggest superstars such as Mayorkun, Peruzzi, and Davido has also stepped in to give a needed boost to the careers of colleagues like Tekno, Lil Kesh, and Lyta.
Just recently, the singer also got the attention of Nigerians after he became the first artist to publicly show support for Cynthia Morgan. The singer in a post shared on his Twitter page asked Cynthia to call hi and disclosed that he has a track he wants them to both work on.
In celebration of the Nigerian superstar, we have compiled some major throwback photos of Davido and some of the superstars he has helped either by featuring in their music videos or simply by being a part of their music.
