“Portable big pass you” – Nigerians react as singer Davido claims he is the king of Afrobeats (Video)

Popular Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, widely known as Davido, has announced that he deserves the title “King of Afrobeats” bestowed upon him by Forbes.

He asserts that the fame is no accident because he has always wanted the Afrobeats genre to gain recognition in the Western world.

Davido claimed to be one of the first Afrobeats musicians to get signed by a major global record company.

During an interview with Billboard News, he was asked how it felt to be dubbed the “King of Afrobeat” by Forbes.
Davido said:
“I mean, it’s true. I have lived in both places; I have lived in America. I went to school right here too, in Alabama. I was always spreading the gospel of African culture; the food, fashion.
“So, when it was time to do music, my dream was always the crossover; ‘When will that crossover happen?’ And you know, I was one of the first to get signed by a major label.”
