A private listening session of Davido’s upcoming album ‘ A Good Time ‘ was held in Lagos by Sony Music West Africa.
MTV Base TV Host, Ehiz, anchored the event. Amongst others, Nigerian music personalities are DJ Jimmy Jatt, Olisa Adibua, Moet Abebe.
An excited Davido took the crowd from the beginning of his career to the small stage when he felt boxed as a singer on a journey down memory road.
He also disclosed how, by reuniting with his former associates, Asa Asika and Shizzi, he ultimately conquered that difficult stage.
The former manages Davido at the moment.
Announcing the album’s name, the singer said Nigerian producers produced all the songs except one. The new job body will be released in October.
In his remarks, the Managing Director of Sony Music West Africa, Oluwaseun LIyod, better known as Sir Banko, said he believed strongly in time and seasons.
He also observed the arrival of the album is “at this crucial point in African music history”.
He said, “For me, despite all the negative news been churn out by the Media about Africa, African music remains that positive force that can’t be ignored.
“This album is coming at a time when Africans now see their fellow African brother as threats. A time when Nigerians are been labeled fraudsters.
So, here’s what happens Davido comes in with this great body of work to change the narrative and tell the world that my fellow African brothers are not violent beings. Rather they are a peaceful continent with rich cultures, traditions, and people who just want to have a good time.”
The album titled, ‘A Good Time’ will comprise of 10-13 tracks. The guests were treated to an exclusive listening of three songs off the album and Meek Mill’s verse on ‘Blow My Mind’.
Four years ago, Davido inked a Sony Music record deal.
