The Nigerian presidential candidate under the umbrella of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has shared his thoughts on who he thinks dominates the Nigerian music industry. According to him, Davido is the king of Naija music.
Young Nigerians on Atiku’s team had developed a website for the aspiring president. They decided to engage the potential Nigerian president in a question and answer section which saw Nigerians questioning Atiku on any subject. The aspiring president faithfully provided answers to all the questions asked him. And then he was asked about music.
About music, he was asked who his favorite musician is. Atiku Abubakar took his questionnaires down memory lane, telling them of how he so loved the late Fela Kuti that he never skipped any of his shrine musical events. Having declared Fela as the favorite musician of his youth, he moved onto declaring Davido his current favorite. He said:
“At my youth, Fela was the king of music, and believe me, he was my favorite musician. And I made sure I attended all Shrine musical events throughout the night and till morning. But of course currently, the reigning king is Davido.”
