Davido Sets New Youtube Record
By Dipo Omoware
Afro-pop artiste, David Adedeji Adeleke better known as Davido has set yet another record on video streaming platform YouTube as the first Nigeria artiste to hit 1 million views in just 11 hours.
The Dami Duro crooner released visuals for his ‘Blow My Mind’ hit which features superstar Chris Brown on the 30th of July. No doubt having the American on the music video had a significant influence but Davido sure knows how to stay ahead in the numbers game.
In 2017, his hit single ‘Fall’ became the first song by a Nigerian artist to hit 100 million views ahead of Tekno’s ‘Pana’ and Yemi Alade’s ‘Johnny’ which stood at 98 million views around the same time.
On the same day he released the video, Davido became the first Nigerian artiste to cross 500 million views for all uploads on his YouTube page. The singer was clearly elated as he took to his Twitter handle to share this.
The video of the music shows Chris Brown dancing in the rain and Davido also claimed on his twitter page that the American has never done this before.
