Davido, the Nigerian Afro-pop star, says he will be dropping a new song on Friday night ahead of his birthday on Sunday.
“New music at midnight W.A.T,” the singer wrote.
The new track is coming as friends of the ‘Dami Duro’ crooner have so far donated nearly N185 million in two days, with more still trickling in.
Those who have contributed to the fundraiser include Akin Alabi, Patoranking, Femi Otedola, Dorathy Bachor, and Don Jazzy, Chike, Nengi Hampson, Adekunle Gold, Peruzzi, Teni, Naira Marley, MI, Ubi Franklin, Syndey Talker, Eniola Badmus, Charles of Play, Obi Cubana and Phyno.
Others are Oba Saheed Adenuga Elegushi, Focalistic, Rema, Ckay, Toke Makinwa, Larry Gaga, Tunde Ednut, Pasuma, Cubana Chief Priest, and Bella Shmurda.
Davido rose to fame in 2012 after releasing ‘Dami Duro’, the second track of his debut album ‘Omo Baba Olowo’.
Between 2013 and 2015, he released a number of hits and signed a record deal with Sony Music in January 2016.
The hitmaker would later establish the record label DMW which is home to artistes like Dremo, Mayorkun, and Peruzzi.
In July 2016, Davido signed a record deal with Sony’s RCA Records, releasing the five-track EP ‘Son of Mercy’.
Davido re-negotiated his contract with Sony in 2017, releasing five singles including the chart-topping ‘If’ and ‘Fall’.
He released his second album ‘A Good Time’ in 2019, supported by hit singles including ‘Blow My Mind’.
The singer later followed this up with the release of his third studio album ‘A Better Time’ in November 2020.
