Akon, the Senegalese-American singer, has described Davido, the Afrobeats star, as the “ultimate shouter”.


Akon was asked to choose between Wizkid or Davido in a recent chat with Issra, a BBC radio presenter.

The 51-year-old music executive said he “gets into trouble” for speaking about the ‘Timeless’ hitmaker.

Akon said he prefers Davido over Wizkid, adding that the ‘OBO’ crooner is the “ultimate shouter”.


“I get into trouble for mentioning anything about Davido. So I am gonna go with Davido. Davido will whoop my ass,” he said.

“Davido is the ultimate shouter.”

Wizkid and Davido are in constant rivalry with their supporters fighting over who is superior.


The duo recently engaged in a heated war of words on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Akon had previously described Wizkid as a “born star” and the “poster child for Afrobeats”.

He said Davido, on the other hand, is the “hardest working artiste” who was initially seen as an underdog.

“Wizkid is just a superstar. He is one of those guys who would put out one record a year and that record last a whole year. He was born a star,” he said.


“Davido is like the hardest working artiste because he was the underdog back then. He will beat you with quantity versus quality.”
