Recall that the singer had earlier indicated that his handlers tried as much to change his style of music to please his international audience, but that he “fought and pleaded for them” to allow him stay true to his kind of music.
“All last year, they tried to change my sound…..saying staying true to my culture wouldn’t work for me outside Africa!.
“This year I fought and pleaded for ‘them’ to allow me make the music I know how to make and now see what’s happened!! MUSIC AINT GOT A LANGUAGE !! NOW I GOT THE BIGGEST SONG IN AFRICA ONCE AGAIN! THANK TO JAH!!,” Davido had said.
