Davido has revealed the Nigerian artists who were his mentors and have helped in shaping his idea about the music industry and fame.
Few days ago, speaking to the Grammy Museum as a guest, Davido said;
“The Mentorship Monday sessions have provided an opportunity for students to connect with established music industry professionals and creatives, and served as a valuable tool for information, advice, and exploration within a wide variety of music careers and topics as they pursue their own careers,”
He also talked about the beginning of his career and how hard he worked his way to the top. He gave performers the same advice to do the same.
He made mention of Don Jazzy and D’Banj as his first mentors in the game. He said seeing the picture of them with Jay Z and Kanye West was really inspiring and made him proud. His father was also an inspiration to him.
