Nigerian Artist Davide Adeleke, known as Davido, in a recent interview has indicated that a decade ago, it wasn’t too cool to be an Africa.
According to him, the attention is now on Africa referencing the success of artists such as Burna Boy and Wizkid, as well as his own.
During his interview, he said;
“The world is changing, people, especially younger people, are more open-minded. Ten years ago it wasn’t cool to be African, but now it’s cool, everybody accepts us.
There’s also the obvious fact that, in the social media era, it’s become easier to access art from all over the world. You don’t have to wait for a song to get played on TV or radio, you can upload something and people will find it.”
