Nigerian superstar, Davido, is known for a number of things apart from his music. Many times, he is discussed on social media for the love he shows his crew, his generosity and most prominent of all, his relationship with another top singer, Wizkid.
While speaking recently on the Ionwannatalk podcast, the 28-year-old singer opened up about a number of issues including Wizkid.
According to Davido, if he and Wizkid were to sit down and discuss their issues, it would be discovered that they did not have more than two or three problems with each other.
The Risky crooner also recognised that fans played a big role in their supposed beef and that they were using their lives for their own entertainment.
Davido explained further by saying that the beef was now no longer about the artistes but the fans, seeing as they formed their own different cliques.
Also during the interview, Davido was asked to share his thoughts on if a song of him and Wizkid will be a massive hit.
The singer said that he and Wizkid used to be good friends and it was surprising that they had never done a song together in 10 years. He attributed that to them not being in the same place mentally.
According to Davido, there are some people who feel his issues with Wizkid made them bigger while others feel coming together will make them bigger.
The Risky crooner also spoke on the roles crew members play in fuelling beef between artistes. According to him, an artiste could have been upset at one point and said a lot of things about another artiste.
He however added that he was not the kind of man who was scared to tell his crew members that he doesn’t feel the same way anymore after having beef with someone.
According to him, crew members could want to push an artiste to take drastic steps but he tells his own boys that the consequences will bear his name and not theirs.
Davido then touched on the high rate of substance use in the country and advised people to desist from it.
According to him, it was better if they took their alcohol or weed at most but not graduate to other heavier substances.
The singer said he felt people used substances to avoid their problems but he is the kind of man to face his squarely.
