- BBNaija Laycon shared what he thinks about singer Davido in an article for an international news website

- Davido saw the article on social media and he responded with a love emoji
BBNaija Laycon has acknowledged Davido as one of 'the biggest voices in Afrobeats because his music connects with people.'
The Lockdown star said this in a piece he wrote for Time about the Blow My Mind crooner who recently made the list of Time's 100 most influential people.
According to Laycon, Davido puts 100% into every song he makes, noting that his latest album surpassed a billion streams in 2020.
In the piece, the reality star recalled the EndSARS movement and how Davido's FEM was an anthem that peaceful protesters used to call for accountability from the government rather than giving excuses.
"When he released the song “FEM” in 2020, a title that loosely translates to “shut up” in Yoruba, he didn’t know it would become a major #EndSARS protest anthem, as youth banded together to demand the government take action to end police brutality in Nigeria last October."
Davido spotted the tweet from Time about Laycon's writeup and he retweeted it. The singer captioned the tweet with a love emoji.
