Davido – I deserve 20 Grammy Awards: 5 Reasons We Think Davido Is Right 

In a recent interview with France 24 leading up to the 66th Grammy Awards, Afrobeats sensation Davido shared that he believes he should have won 20 Grammy Awards already. However, he also mentioned that he trusts in God’s timing.

The singer’s bold statement has sparked conversations, with some thinking he might be stretching the truth. Despite differing opinions, we think his point of view is valid, and here’s why:

Pioneering The Afrobeats To The World Movement 

Davido is often credited as one of the pioneers of the modern Afrobeats sound.

Nothing is more effective for spreading culture than a hit single and that’s precisely what happened when “Fall” gained immense popularity in the U.S. and worldwide. A feat which made people across the globe pay more attention to Afrobeats. 

In 2018 when Davido won the Best International Act award at the BET Awards in Los Angeles, he urged fellow artists in the audience to “come to Africa.” Davido credits the subsequent collaborations and opportunities, such as being featured on Quavo’s album and performing at J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival, to the exposure gained from the global success of “Fall.” Davido emphasizes his efforts in bridging cultures by frequently visiting the U.S., bringing people to Nigeria, and showcasing their rich culture.

Davido’s Is The King of Hits 

Having spent 13 years in the music industry and selling over 20 million records globally,

Davido has made an immense contribution to the Afrobeat genre. Starting from his first album “Omo Baba Olowo” to the well-received “A Good Time” and now “Timeless,” he consistently produces chart-topping hits that highlight the depth and variety of African music. By blending traditional sounds with global influences, Davido has played a crucial role in expanding Afrobeat beyond cultural confines and there’s no stopping him anytime soon.

Collaborations Across Borders and Wide Cultural Appeal

Davido’s readiness to work with musicians from various backgrounds is a distinctive feature of his style. Besides boosting his own reputation, teaming up with global artists like Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj has significantly contributed to spreading awareness of Afrobeat worldwide. This illustrates the wide-ranging popularity of Davido’s music that transcends cultural limits.

Influence on Society and Activism

Over the years, we have seen Davido utilize his platform to champion social causes. He openly addresses matters like inequality, corruption, and empowering the youth in Nigeria. Winning a Grammy would magnify his voice, providing him with the opportunity to leverage his influence for addressing crucial social issues on a global level.

Impact on Future Generation

As a pioneer of the modern Afrobeat genre, Davido’s Grammy nomination is more than just an individual accomplishment; it marks the triumph of Afrobeat on a worldwide stage. If he does win it, this victory would elevate him to the status of a national inspiration and source of hope for budding musicians.
