Davido Sets Internet on Fire, Lists Next ‘Big 5 Artistes’, Snubs Tems, Omah Lay, Others

June 13, 2023

During a recent interview with Omega, Davido was asked to select the next five prominent Nigerian artistes; his response, however, sparked controversy.

In his response, he left out Fireboy DML, Tems, and Omah Lay, which sparked outrage on social media.

He named Rema, Buju, Ayra Starr, Victony, and Asake as the next major five performers he believes will control the music industry. He admitted that this was his personal opinion, but he believes that the future of Afrobeats is bright.

“I would say like the next big five. I would say Rema; he got the ‘Calm Down’ record, Buju (BNXN), Ayra Starr…I would say Victony. No, no, me I no want jones o. Okay, let’s do it like this. It’s Rema, Buju, Asake; between him and Rema, I would say they are at the top…Ayra Starr and Ruger. The future of afrobeats, I would say it’s crazy,” he said.

However, fans expressed their discontent on social media, criticizing Davido for snubbing Fireboy, Tems, and Omah Lay in his selection.
