During the interview with Brut, Davido stated that he and Wizkid are the pioneer artists who paved the way for the global recognition and popularity of Afrobeat music, before artists like “Burna Boy, Rema, Asake,” whom he referred to as “new cats,” entered the scene. He said:
“Everybody knows that I was one of the first, along with Wizkid, to blow up. It feels good to see the new cats coming up, like Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Asake, and Mayorkun,”
