Nigerian Award-winning megastar, David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has revealed who the “Dami Duro” beat was initially meant for.
The DMW boss made this known when he was speaking about his 2011 hit song during an episode of the ‘Afrobeats: The Backstory’ documentary.
The documentary which centres on the rise of the Afrobeats genre premiered on Netflix on Thursday. It was produced by Ayo Shonaiya.
The song ‘Dami Duro’ is the second track on the singer’s debut album, ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ (2012).
Davido said he initially had no intention to record a song with the beat and that the beat was meant for Sexy Steel.
“People that were in the studio when I recorded Dami Duro were Wande, Bigiano, Shank and Shizzi. I started the beat to Dami Duro and then I was actually making the beat for Sexy Steel,”
“This is facts cause I had a studio, I had like the best studio at that time. So I was making it for Sexy Steel. I met Shizzi in Wande’s house when he was working on Wizkid’s album.”
