It is important to make it clear from the get-go that this article about Davido is not about who is better than who, or who international pass. In this piece, I’d be looking at the high points of the music career of Davido, bearer of the Omo Baba Olowo title; since it began in 2011. From the days of attempting to introduce himself to the industry with Back When, to this day, when Fall, If, Pere have become hot market products from the same maker; Davido has built for himself an enviable music career. There might be some spottable imperfections, but with the impressive number of landmarks and achievements he has recorded, one would be tempted to agree with him on his self-conferred legendary status.

In a period of about six years, not only has Davido piled up several grand titles (Omo Baba Olowo, Baddest, Mr Ronaldo), the DMW boss has claimed tens of awards for himself and he is poised to claim more and more awards, with his liking for releasing hot-selling musicals and visuals alike. So cheers to more musical success for the singer, here are 5 notable highlights of his career thus far:
- Dami Duro: The Breakout Song
Davido’s first attempt at mainstream music might have been the release of Back When on which he featured Naeto C, but the song that did the major announcement of the arrival of a rich kid from the west, on the Nigerian music scene, was Dami Duro. Davido’s breakout story would never be thoroughly told without reference to Dami Duro, with which the then tenderfoot artiste, was loud and clear about his unstoppable push for success. The success of the song earned him the Headies Next Rated Award, laying the groundwork for more successes to follow.
