Sierra Leone Entertainment: Davido hits Salone in 8 days

Nigerian recording artist, performer and record producer David Adedeji Adeleke stage name Davido, kick start his Billion Africa Tours on 7th October in South Africa.
On the 21st of October he would be performing live in Freetown.
The confirmed countries so far include Nigeria, South Africa, Angola, Guinea, Botswana, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Mozambique and Zimbabwe with 15 shows to be delivered. The decision to have four Lagos shows and none in any other Nigerian cities must be questioned however, the suggestion at the moment is that more dates will be added presumably in the time frame between the second Lagos and Angola shows.
It will definitely be interesting to see Mayorkun join his label leader on the 30 Billion Africa Tour, most especially at the shows outside Nigeria, a move which will continue to help him consolidate his position as the biggest breakout act in the Afro-pop scene over the past 18 months.
His 2011 single “Dami Duro” was well-received throughout Nigeria. Along with his elder brother Adewale Adeleke, Davido is the co-owner of HKN Music (a record label home to Sina Rambo, B. Red and DeeKay. He has produced songs for Naeto C, Skales, Tiwa Savage and Sauce Kid. In April 2012, he signed an endorsement deal with MTN Nigeria. On October 23, 2013, Davido partnered with Guinness Nigeria for the “Guinness World of More” concert.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Davido relocated to Lagos at a young age. His debut album Omo Baba Olowo, released in 2012, was supported by the singles “Back When” featuring Naeto C, “Dami Duro”, “All of You”, “Overseas” featuring Sina Rambo, “Ekuro”, “Gbon Gbon” and “Feel Alright” featuring Ice Prince. Between 2013 and 2015, Davido released the singles “Gobe”, “One of a Kind”, “Skelewu”, “Aye”, “Tchelete (Goodlife)” featuring Mafikizolo, “Naughty” featuring DJ Arafat, “Owo Ni Koko”, “The Sound” and “The Money” featuring Olamide. The aforementioned singles were reportedly intended to be singles off the album, The Baddest.
In January 2016, Davido announced via Twitter that he signed a record deal with Sony Music. His announcement was met with mixed reactions. The record label put out a press release to confirm the deal. Davido started his own label, Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), few months after signing with Sony. Dremo and Mayorkun are currently signed to the label. In July 2016, Davido signed a record deal with Sony’s RCA Records.
