OBO Boss, Davido has had the eventful year 2017 and as the year draws nigh, we look back at the big names of the year. Among the top and buzzing acts of the year, one can comfortably single Davido out as the biggest.
These are five reasons why we think so…
Biggest hits of the year:
Through the year, Davido has done amazingly well to bring the best hits to fans and music lovers across the world. He succeeded in making hits that lasted through the year and earned him resounding nods from lovers. IF, Fall, Pere, and most recently, Fia. All his songs came out as major hits. This is an almost undeniable fact.
The Fall crooner in more than one ways was a big winner for the ending year. His name emerged in all the major awards and for most of it, he was a winner. At the MTV EMAs, Davido clinched both Best Worldwide Act and Best African Act awards. Moving forward, the singer Proceeded to win the Best African Act at the Mobo Awards. He also proceeded to win the Future Awards Africa’s prize for Music
Through the thins, he emerged thick.
As the year proceeded, hard or may be difficult times hit the singer and he managed to wriggle his way through. When the singer lost two of his friends in one week, many thought that he wouldn’t come out of it without a scandal but hell no! OBO proved himself strong, he came out stronger. Even after he was accused of murder for the death of one of those friends by a celebrity, he was vindicated. Even more amazingly, he came out of the mess with a hit track.
The biggest Concert of the year.
Davido, despite it all, managed to pull together one of the biggest concerts of the year. This served as a climax for a year that was already ending for him on a good note. For this, he pulled together, big names in the industry.
Davido the peacemaker.
What better way is there to live in a world that is full of so much chaos than to be a peacemaker. It is valid to say that for this year, Davido deserves an award as the chief peacemaker in the Nigerian Music cum entertainment industry.
Starting from making peace with the Ovation Boss, to his reconciliation with his then arch-rival, Wizkid to the point of even calling him his new best friend. (Who thought the day would come?) He went further to bring the estranged Mo’Hits Crew together for the first time since their breakup. Again, the singer asked that there should be unity in the industry as he spoke on the beef between the then Psquare duo.
