Award-winning singer Davido has graced the cover of American fashion and culture magazine, Flaunt Magazine for its “In The Garden” edition
For the magazine’s cover, the DMW boss is adorned in a Gucci sweatshirt, kaftan, and shoes, Etro pants and vintage Versace sunglasses.
In the interview via zoom following the cover shoot, the “If” crooner talked about his smashingly successful project, his third studio album “A Better Time” which hit over 100 million streams in just three days across all streaming platforms following its release.
The international pop star also spoke about his collaboration with Nicki Minaj, fatherhood, having his son on the cover art of his album, “Fem” and #EndSARS and a whole lot more.
Recording “A Better Time” at home and hitting 100 million streams in three days.
“We were in a pandemic, obviously Corona hit. There were no plans to drop the album because I was on tour. I was still touring off of “A Good Time” album, then Corona hit. I went back to the studio because there’s nothing else to do. Everybody was at home focused, so we went back to the studio, and started recording a lot. Before you know, we had 50 songs. Yo, we gotta put this out. That’s how that album came, a quarantine album I call it.”
What “A Better Time” meant for people during the pandemic
“Really because we was having a good time on tour and everything, I said ‘Yo, A Better Time!’ It was weird because we weren’t in a better time at that time. It was Corona, but it was something to look forward to. A Better Time is coming, that’s why I called it a better time. Right now things are starting to open up, and it’s looking like we’re about to go back on the road. “
Collaboration with Nicki Minaj on ‘Holy Ground’
“Crazy man! I never met her before too. It’s crazy, I DM’d her and she replied like, ‘Yo, let’s do it!’ I sent the song and she sent it back. We couldn’t meet because I was in Nigeria and she was on the way to LA, then she had a child. I appreciate her for that verse. People love it, I love it. I’m sure we’ll do some more work. “
