Afrobeats Business: Davido Shares His Career Journey
Afrobeats is in the midst of a global renaissance. The distinctly African sound has gone global, largely in thanks to Afrobeats superstar Davido, who has amassed 2 billion-plus streams and over 1 billion video views across his 11-year career. The most followed Afrobeats artist across social media, Davido has been a frontrunner in connecting the world to Afrobeats and vice versa. In this conversation with Forbes Chief Content Officer Randall Lane at the Forbes Under 30 Summit Africa, he talks tunes, his Nigerian record label (Davido Music Worldwide), his non-profit (David Adeleke Foundation) and how maintaining his African roots has translated into dollar signs over time.
