Nigerian superstar singer, David Adeleke also known as Davido, he has finally given a response two months after a troll said he would never be nominated for a Grammy Award.
Recall that last November, the ‘FIA’ crooner bagged a total of three nominations in the list of nominees for the 66th Grammys second to self-acclaimed African Giant, Burna Boy.
A critic known as @truthsaves01 on Twitter (X) said on October 16, 2023, that the decision by the DMW boss to submit his songs for consideration was proof that he didn’t know what he was doing.
He described Davido as a B-list artiste and stated that his most recent album, Timeless was the ‘most directionless’.
He wrote; “Davido submitting his songs & project for Grammy consideration shows he actually doesn’t know what he’s doing.
“Timeless” is one of the most directionless album I have ever seen been released by a B list artist like Davido. Davido should brace up cos he’s getting ZERO Noms.”
Giving an emotional reaction to the post on Wednesday, 3rd of January 2024, Davido wrote; “LIFE”
