I would have been a stand-up comedian if not for music – Davido

Davido has revealed that if not for music, he would have ended up as a comedian.


According to him, he loves to see people happy.


The pop hitmaker made this known in a documentary filmed by Tayo Aina.


In the documentary, the pop star spent a day traveling and performing while the YouTuber Tayo Aina filmed him.


Davido said he is inclined to evoke the humour out of situations in a way that reflects in his entertainment career.


“If I was not doing music, I would have been a stand-up comedian. I’m a funny guy. In school, I was the type to always make people laugh. That transcended into my entertainment, music, and being a people person,” the singer said.


“I know how it feels to not feel good. That bad feeling, I wouldn’t wish it on even my enemy.”


Davido spoke of his early days in music and the influence Don Jazzy, the record producer, had on his career.


“I blew up when I was 17. I was a baby. My main strong point was that I knew how to engineer. I knew how to make beats. One of my cousins used to work with Mo Hits and Dbanj. They liked my swag,” the singer added.


“Don Jazzy was my mentor. It was amazing. I started hustling and meeting people. From there, I sorted myself out.


“When I go to countries to perform, the presidency always reaches out. They ask if I want to go for dinner. My fans collated how many countries Davido has performed in. I saw about 75.


“Before I started making music, I’ve been traveling. You have also to count those. I’ve been traveling even alone and unaccompanied since I was 13. I knew my way around the airport.


“I work too hard. Everyone is sleeping and I’m up recording or mixing. We’re up editing videos. The work is blood, sweat, and tears. For the next five to six years, I need to own it.”
