I Am Not Accepted As A Successful Singer Because I Don't Have A Grass To Grace Story - Davido

I Am Not Accepted As A Successful Singer Because I Don't Have A Grass To Grace Story - Davido (Updated: 2 months ago)


Superstar singer, Davido Adeleke has opened up on why Nigerians do not accept him as a successful singer.

He said he is not seen as a successful singer because of his wealthy family background.

The DMW boss, in a chat on “IONWANNATALK” podcast, said the fact that he lacks the “grass to grace” story which is one significant criterion to be accepted by Nigerians makes it harder for him to be appreciated despite his impact on the Africa/global music scene.

Davido also alleged envy in the music scene which is why although he was born with a golden spoon he has strived much harder than the common man yet his value is still being downplayed.

According to him: “Not to be cocky but when next is the industry going to see another Davido? Let’s just be honest….A child from where I come from, hustled, suffered.

“I can tell you that I’ve suffered more than a lot of people that don’t have money. And I’ve been able to build what I built. It’s not going to happen in a long time.

“I don’t have the grass to grace story. And for Nigerians to accept you without that is usually very hard.

“That’s why I’m asking you because I know…..I don’t think there’s anything the industry needs because it’s always going to be the same thing. There’s always going to be envy.”
