He claimed that everybody is aware of this and noted that he was excited to see “new cats” dominating the music industry.
Davido grouped Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun and Asake as the ‘new cats’ who came after him and Wizkid.
The music executive made the statement during an interview that’s trending, saying; “Everybody knows that I was one of the first, Wizkid and I were the first young artistes to blow up and it feels good seeing new cats like Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun.
You know a lot of new cats coming, killing it…Asake who was on my album. So, yes, I think the future of Afrobeat is in good hands.”
This caused controversy and sharing of divergent views on social media, with many fans lambasting him.
