Soon-to-be graduate, Davido to drop new album
He had to put aside his education, when fame came calling. But Davido never let the fame and the money distract, or derail his dream of earning a degree.
So after two years of strutting his stuff and dropping joint after joints, Omo-olowo went back to school, and now he is set to graduate. Good for him.
Davido invited all for his graduation, and the release of his much anticipated second studio album. Speaking in Kenya during the weekend, where he performed at the 5th Afrobeatz Festival, Davido said, “I’m inviting all of you for my graduation on June 7, then on June 8 I launch my album.
“I have worked hard for this degree, day in day out. If I am in China today and I have examinations tomorrow, I better get to school tomorrow or else everything is a bust. I have worked on this degree for six years now.
“Before I became famous while I was in school, I had to take a break. But about two years ago, I went back to school”, he said.
Davido’s forthcoming album is expected to feature collabos from international acts like Meek Mill, Drake and Wale among others.
