Davido when asked how his crew members saw him when he began his career said, “It was funny but I was so small then. We were like four in the crew (Annie, Anico, Tobi and Emeka).
“I think I will say I was not the best in academics but I feel like they believed because I loved music. if there was anything they believed was that I was serious, we used to record music, we were like a group.
“So we were rappers, we did a talent show and won and I took it seriously. Any time they see me they would be like eh!!! It happened… It’s great to see! It’s a good feeling like when someone that knew you when you were just like nobody.”
The DMW boss when asked how he felt when performing in the UK said, “The UK has always been amazing because it was my first international show out of Nigeria. My coming to the UK like then when I started music was like you!! I remembered because I grew up around D’banj and some of my mentors. After all, my cousin used to work for them so I always use to be around them in their crib.
“But I used to come for holidays here cause my dad has a house here; so we used to come here. So D’banj at the show, I just told my dad I want to stay at the show and just watch. I was the youngest and they were all just like me. At a point, I performed to a song that nobody knew but it was an opportunity and from that day I was like I need to do this.”
