“Success of my album helped my healing process” — Davido
Davido, the renowned Nigerian Afrobeats Singer, discusses the importance of the success of his fourth album, “Timeless”, in helping him heal after the tragic death of his son Ifeanyi, aged three.
The singer made this known in a recent interview with Hot 107.9 FM in Atlanta, United States.
Davido said that it took three months for him to gain the strength to start recording his album.
He emphasized that the heartbreaking incident of his son’s passing at his residence in Banana Island, Lagos State, in October 2022 took a toll on him.
In his words, “It is a special album to me, you know what I’m saying. Of course, after taking a long break, just coming back to having people really m*ss with the music. You know, sometimes you do an album, you probably get like four or three on there that are like big singles…”
When asked how he is feeling now, the OBO crooner said, “It hasn’t been easy. I just thank God for being able to do my job, to sit here talk to you. There was a point that I felt I wouldn’t be able to do my job. So, I’m just happy I’m able to be creative again.
“The success of the album has been part of my healing process. After like three months [after Ifeanyi’s demise] I was able to work again. Shootouts to all the producers that came through.”
