Davido also shared his happiness in seeing his own success positively impact those he initially signed to the music label, such as MayorkunPeruzzi, and Dremo.

“My label was really more like a family to me, I was young, to me I was just happy putting my boy on. I ran a label for four years and I didn’t take one dime from my artistes.

“I was paying for videos, I was paying for accommodation, I was paying for welfare. I was just happy seeing that my success could rub off on others. That was money to me.

Afrobeats got to a place where its global and I have to explain to the artistes “in these days this is business, to make money you gotta spend money’,” he said.
