Spotify, the music streaming platform, is celebrating the tenth anniversary of Davido’s debut album titled ‘Omo Baba Olowo (OBO)’.
July 17 will make it 10 years since Davido released his debut studio album.
In commemoration of the project’s tenth anniversary, Spotify put out a quiz to test fans’ knowledge of the album’s tracks, lyrics, and collaborators.
“In July 2012, a young Nigerian artist named Davido emerged with a groundbreaking first album that would quickly cement his place on the African and world stages,” the streamer wrote in the quiz published via its site.
“His 17-track project, Omo Baba Olowo: The Genesis, blended traditional African music and global pop for a sound that was unique and birthed a long list of club-ready hits.
“Ten years later, it’s clear that the album was a spark for modern African music and inspired many of the young African musicians who are taking over the world today.”
Davido started working on his debut studio album ‘OBO’ in 2011. The songs in the album are a mixture of Afrobeats and hip hop.
Davido worked with Jay Sleek, Maleek Berry, GospelOnDeBeatz, Spellz, Dokta Frabz, Mr. Chidoo, Theory Soundz, and Shizzi to produce the album.
‘OBO’ featured guest appearances from Naeto C, Sina Rambo, B-Red, Kayswitch, Ice Prince, and 2Baba.
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.
Davido currently has three albums and one EP to his credit.
The singer’s decade-long career has seen him go from an emerging pop star to a global icon.
He has scored a long list of hits and cross-continental collaborations with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Summer Walker, Chris Brown, Nas, Lil Baby, Sauti Sol, Focalistic, Uhuru and most recently, Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir.
Davido has driven some budding artistes to stardom by either offering free verses or signing them to his label.
