The year has kicked off on an amazing note for one of Nigeria’s biggest musical export, Davido. The singer is once again in the news ahead of his 2019 concert in the London.
The Nigerian singer who is currently in London for preparations ahead of his concert billed to take place on Sunday, January 27, at London’s O2 arena took to his social media page to share the news of his 2017 hit song Fall which is now gaining massive airplay in the US.
Davido posted a screenshot of a report by Rolling Stone that explained why his 19-months-old song was now gaining traction on the US airwaves. He posted the picture saying: “Thank you @rollingstone ❤️ US”
According to the report, Davido’s Fall was one of the top 100 most played song on Shazam in America this week.
An excerpt from the report says: “So it’s unusual that “Fall,” a springy, 19-month-old track from the Nigerian singer Davido, is currently gaining traction on the airwaves. The growth has been gradual: 482 plays to date, spread across 36 stations, according to Nielsen BDS, which tracks radio activity. BDS reports that four new stations added “Fall” into rotation last week.
Those are admittedly not huge numbers — for comparison’s sake, Post Malone’s new single “Wow” grew by 1,700 plays last week alone. But listeners who hear “Fall” are scrambling to find their phones: It was one of the Top 100 most Shazam’d singles in America this week. In New York City, “Fall” was a Top 10 record on Shazam. And in Atlanta, another crucial market, only two tracks were getting more Shazam activity than DaVido’s.”
