It's been six years since Davido dropped his debut album, Omo Baba Olowo — a body of work that, while not as cohesive as an LP is expected to be, introduced us to a hitmaker quite like no other. And the afropop juggernaut has been delivering ever since.
Although Davido was meant to drop his follow-up, The Baddest, three years ago, the project had to be deferred due to undisclosed terms in his Sony Music contract. Well, it looks like we'll finally be getting that sophomore album in September.
During The Headies 2018 ceremony, while Davido was accepting the 'Artist of the Year' honour (his third award of the night, following 'Best Pop Single' and 'Song of the Year'), he gleefully announced the album's release date.
Granted, it's a little strange that we'll have to wait so long to get the album — especially since he announced that the LP was completed two months ago — but after a frustrating six-year delay, what's five more months?
The only thing we ask of Davido, however, is that the tracks on the LP lean more towards the quality of his 2017 hits, "If", "Like Dat" and "Fia"; and less towards his 2018 releases, "Flora My Flawa" and the bafflingly successful "Assurance".
