Nigerian Afrobeats sensation David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, recently disclosed his top three choices for collaboration during an appearance on the American podcast Business Untitled.

Davido expressed his admiration for the creative synergy he shares with Chris Brown, Kizz Daniel, and Zlatan Ibile, citing them as his favourite artists with whom to collaborate.

“I love working with Chris Brown, Kizz Daniel, and Zlatan Ibile,” he emphasized during the podcast.

In addition to discussing his musical collaborations, Davido shared insights into the success of his recent concert at Madison Square Garden in New York, which garnered an impressive $1.3 million. This achievement underscores his global appeal and stature as a concert headliner.

Describing his musical style, Davido identified it as Afrofusion, aligning himself with a growing number of artists, including Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Fireboy, who eschew the Afrobeats label.

He lamented the tendency to categorize all African music under the Afrobeats genre, regardless of its diverse styles and influences.

“The first place that accepted African music outside Africa is the UK before America later joined. The UK termed African music Afrobeats,” Davido explained. “I don’t get offended when we’ve been categorized as Afrobeats. I mean, we need a genre. It could be R&B or Afropop. I call my music Afrofusion, but I’m not big on ‘O put Afrofusion on my song.’ I know how long it took for African music to become mainstream.”
