Nigeria Afrobeat and Pop, coined into Afro-Pop phenom, David Adeleke, known worldwide as Davido makes the grand list for the 2021 TIME100 NEXT by Time Magazine.

Speaking on what Davido has achieved so far in his career, Laycon who gave the speech translated into written words, said: “You can tell Davido puts 100% into every song he makes. And the results are clear . . . Afrobeats is a worldwide phenomenon, and Davido is one of many Nigerian artists who has made that possible.” “By bringing Afrobeats to the global stage, he’s paved the way for people like me.” Laycon concluded

Davido continue to soar as one of the few Nigerian artistes to have gone global yet stuck to their roots. Like the piece from Time Magazine says, “the results are clear”; one of Davido’s latest achievement is having his 2017 released smash-hit—“If”— achieve Gold status in the U.S i.e. the record has sold a cumulative over 500,000 units or its equivalent in streams.

Although Davido did not make the “ARTISTS” cut on the ‘2021 TIME100 NEXT’, he got inducted through the ‘PHENOMS’ category for his role in making Afrobeat a global genre of music enjoyed by a vast array of music listeners.

Other Nigerians to make this year’s list are: FK Abudu, Odunayo Eweniyi and Damiliola Odufuwa under the ‘ADVOCATES’ category for the role they played during the #EndSARS protest; Flutterwave CEO, Olugbenga Agboola for being one of the breakout and outstanding ‘INNOVATORS’ in 2020 and Nigerian-American writer, Ijeoma Oluo made the ‘ADVOCATES’ list.
