In the pulsating world of Afrobeats music, Davido stands tall as one of the genre’s luminaries. His relentless efforts have recently borne fruit, with the artist securing three Grammy nominations, including a groundbreaking nod for the inaugural Best African Performance award.

During an exclusive interview with TMZ Hip Hop in NYC, the “Unavailable” crooner showcased his confidence in the Grammys, even in the face of potential mishaps in his homegrown category. Davido, nominated alongside respected musicians Asake, Arya Starr, Burna Boy, and Tyla, considers them all hardworking counterparts in the industry.

    Davido’s journey to Grammy contention has been marked by resilience, notably overcoming personal tragedy. In October 2022, he faced the heartbreaking loss of his 3-year-old son Ifeanyi, who tragically drowned in their home swimming pool. Despite grieving privately, Davido bounced back in March with the release of his album “Timeless,” earning two additional Grammy nominations for Best Global Music Album and Best Global Music Performance.

    Adding to his whirlwind of life events, Davido and his wife Chioma welcomed twins just last month—a boy and a girl. In the midst of caring for his new blessings, the artist reflects on the fullness that family brings to his life.

      In the interview, Davido also delves into the definition of Afrobeats, a genre that has seen a meteoric rise in popularity. He clarifies that the term originates from the sounds of the late legendary composer Fela Kuti. Interestingly, Davido notes that despite the classification, he and other artists of Nigerian origin often create R&B music, challenging preconceptions about the genre’s identity.
