Meanwhile, Hip Hop star, Emeka Akumefule, popularly known as Blaqbonez has lamented over the coincidence of him and Davido releasing new albums on the same day.

He announced on 16th of March that his next project will be dropping on March 31st and was warming up to the date.

However, on March 21st, Davido took to Twitter to announced that his new album titled TIMELESS will be released on March 31st.

The Afrobeats star, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido ended his social media hiatus in fulfilment of a promise.

He took to his Twitter and Instagram pages to announced that his next album titled TIMELESS will be released on 31st of March 2023.

Davido who went offline after losing his son in October 2022, announced in December that would be returning to online platforms in March.

In a post on his page, the FEM crooner dropped a trailer for his forthcoming album and penned a thoughtful message about the need to heal.

He expressed thanks to fans and supporters who stood strong for him and others that were with him through the grieving process.

Davido wrote;“There is a time for everything. A time to Grieve and a time to Heal. A time to Laugh and a time to Dance. A time to Speak & A time for Silence.

Thank you to everyone out there for your love and that has held me down. My next album TIMELESS is here, March 31st. Preorder in bio💚”

This came as a huge shocker and disappointing reality for Blaq because of the high probability of the album reception overshadowing his own song when they both drop.
