There’s an unpopular adage that ‘the devil works hard, but Davido works harder’. There’s no falsity in that statement as the king of African music ceaselessly unveils new projects and surprises even in the middle of a pandemic. Barely 24 hours since the release of his feature on Khalid’s ‘Know Your Worth’ alongside Nigerian RnB artist Tems, the afrobeats superstar has also let loose the visuals of his 2019 hit D & G with American singer Summer Walker and producer London On Da Track. The record is a hit from his recent sophomore album ‘A Good Time’.
D&G’s video is quite outstanding as Davido rallies his fans’ support for a common good. The singer announced that all proceeds from the video will be committed to the Dolce & Gabbana and Humanitas Together for Coronavirus Research fund. The aim is to lay the basis for developing diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, contributing to the solution of a global problem. The video was filmed in Los Angeles during his last North American tour and directed by longtime visual collaborator DAPS.
David Adeleke’s affluent family have been in the local news lately for series of donations and foodstuffs of up to $2 million for vulnerable Nigerians and residents of his native Osun state. On the 27th of March, Davido announced that his fiancee and baby-mama had contracted the virus after a London trip. He shared the news about her recovery a few days ago after weeks of treatment and isolation. Despite all the dilemma, it’s still a good time for Davido.
