Davido is fast becoming the most successful Nigerian music act, not only on the streets or on top music charts across the world, his videos too are top of the range.
His ‘If’ single was not only an audio hit, it was also a video phenomenon, having 72 million views within a year of its release. His ‘FIA’ video which was also released last year already has 55 million views. ‘Assurance’ was only released 7 months ago and it’s already proving to be something special with 29 million views and still counting.
