Davido Is Deeply Confused And Needs Good Counsel ASAP

The primary month of the year is scarcely out and OBO is miss terminating.

As of late there was a report Davido let go his administrator Kamal Ajiboye, as he regretted his dissatisfaction originating from his pursuit of universal popularity. While that activity can’t be outlined as being either great or terrible, his marking of another demonstration Yonda to DMW is not well planned and resembles an awful choice.

Why might marking Yonda to DMW be such an awful thought? Above all else, what number of acts are as of now housed under DMW? How about we check them; Mayorkun, Dremo, Ichaba, Danagog, Lola Rae and not overlooking Dammy Krane who is professedly on an association manage the music engrave. That brings the aggregate number of artistes on the name up to seven (7).

Another question to be earnestly addressed is this. Are those artistes breaking new grounds? Aside from Mayorkun who recorded a hit with Eleko and Dremo who blew with his Panda free-form “Fela” none of alternate artistes are doing anything deserving of acclaim. Don’t bother Lola Rae and Dammy Krane; both artistes are notable before marking with DMW. Davido is presumably gnawing more than he can bite. His arbitrary marking of artistes to his DMW crease appears like a bet and failing.

OBO ought to know he has to groom his acts to a point of near self independence. Something like what Olamide was able to achieve with Lil Kesh and Adekunle Gold. On the hand, he is yet to fully cash out on all the artistes he has so far brought on board, yet he is stretching out for more.  It’s music business therefore Davido isn’t probably running a charity organization with his DMW record label. So why sign new acts when older acts on the label have not been fully actualized?  A better option would be ensuring the already signed acts deliver hit records, go for better shows and bring in more money other than adding more to his full plate.

Davido is at a very sensitive point in his music career with an option to make or mare his career. He seriously needs to get his act together as an artiste. He isn’t happy with Sony Music so far from his social media rants. That alone is enough warning to get back to basics. He would be better off if he signed a song writer for himself. Davido needs a convincing return to the game for his name and prestige.

At this point the “Gbagbe Oshi” crooner is in dire need of good career counsel, before he heads too far in the wrong direction. The deal is done and probably can’t be reversed now his focus should be on getting the best out of his boys and first lady. So we won’t hear news about one artiste or the other in DMW complaining how the label hasn’t done enough for him, or news of an altercation between the label management and an artiste.

Signing Yonda is much more work for Davido and he seems ill-prepared for it.
