I want to bring you to the other part of my world: Davido drops teaser from single off next album & it's huge
Mostly through my social media, my best experiences are when people send me a video of them singing my songs word for word or show up when I am performing at a concert or anywhere
Dreycoded, in his foray into music, has some singers he looked up to and hold in high esteem. He listed some of his musical role models and mentioned his reasons for selecting them.
“The first role model is Wizkid, who arguably is the biggest African music export ever; then there is Kizz Daniel, he has a unique sound which makes him different; then Omah lay, one of the most talented artist right now and Davido, who is so hardworking and free-spirited.”
When asked what his reaction would be if he were to win a Grammy just like his role model Wizkid, Dreycoded said:
"Cry all day"
Speaking on the trending baby mama syndrome and reacting to the popular notion in society that male musicians are playboys, interested in flings instead of long-term relationships instead settling down with a woman as a wife. The singer said he doesn't want a baby mama but rather prefers to settle down, marry a woman legally and stick with her all his life.
“I don’t want a baby mama at all; I will simply get married and stick to one woman all my life.”
Bury me with Wizkid's towel
Legit.ng recently reported that during Wizkid’s concert in Texas, the singer threw his sweaty towel into the huge crowd and it caused a bit of ruckus.
After series of arguments about who caught the towel or who the singer actually meant to give, the ladies eventually decided to divide it.
One of the ladies who was lucky enough to get a piece of the singer’s cloth noted that when she dies, she would want to be buried with it.
