Drake helped bring Afrobeat to the forefront worldwide – Davido


Multiple award-winning and Afrobeats singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido has stated that Canadian rapper, Drake, helped in putting the global spotlight on Afrobeats.

Davido said this while answering questions in an interview with Bootleg Kev Podcast, published on Tuesday.

He said, “There are always narratives like, “Oh, Afrobeats was definitely huge before Drake” but Drake is Drake, so I’d be lying if I said he didn’t put some spotlight on Afrobeats, and you know it was dope.

“He has made some dope records,” the singer added.

Drake has featured in a few Afrobeat songs, some of which are Wikzid’s ‘come closer’ and ‘Ojuelegba remix’ including Tems’ Fountains
