Davido opens up, in his exclusive interview with Forbes, about the growth of Afrobeats in the world today and why artists performing Afrobeats have changed the way they perform today.
Multi-award winning Nigerian artist Davido, in an exclusive interview with Forbes in Botswana on Tuesday 25th April 2023, opens up on the evolution of today’s afrobeats. The singer revealed that Afrobeats as a whole has changed and exceeded the expectations of many, as the way Nigerian artists were viewed in the early 2010s when he was studying in the US is not the same as how African people are seen now.
He stated that more people are more interested in listening to Nigerian music, and this has played a huge role in the way Afrobeat artists create music and perform today as well.
Davido opens up how there has been a shift from simply playing recorded songs at concerts and events to doing more and showing the authenticity the afrobeats sound has today. He noted that his North American tour, which will begin on July 1, 2023, is something he is looking forward to as his focus has changed to how much he will be photographed rather than how much he will earn from the tour.
