Uproar as Davido snubs Fireboy, Tems, Omah Lay as he lists next ‘big 5’
Nigerian afrobeats superstar David Adeleke, aka Davido, has stirred controversy after leaving out Fireboy DML, Tems, and Omah Lay in his list of “next big 5” Nigerian artists that would dominate the music industry.
Davido was asked to list the next five big artists from Nigeria during a recent interview with Omega.
He said, “I would say like the next big five. I would say Rema; he got the ‘Calm Down’ record, Buju (BNXN), Ayra Starr…I would say Victony. No, no, me, I don't want Jones o. Okay, let’s do it like this. It’s Rema, Buju, Asake; between him and Rema, I would say they are at the top…Ayra Starr and Ruger
“The future of afrobeats—I would say it’s crazy.”
