Davido Becomes The First Nigerian Artist To Be Recognised By The South African Music Awards (SAMAs)

Davido has become the first Nigerian musician to be recognised by the South African Music Awards (SAMAs)

Nigerian music star, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, recently left the country proud following his recent win at what is considered South Africa’s biggest accolade in music, South African Music Award (SAMA).

The popular musician was recognised at the virtual ceremony held on Monday evening, August 3.

Davido’s A Good Time album won the award under the ‘Rest of Africa’ category. The win makes him the first Nigerian artiste to win a SAMA.

The highly successful album has been earning accolades left, right and centre. Just a few days ago, the continent was celebrating the hit record being streamed over a billion times.

The album was released on November 22, 2019, through Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), RCA Records and Sony Music. It features guest appearances from Chris Brown, Summer Walker, Gunna, A Boogie wit da Hoodie and Naira Marley, to name a few.

Although many were surprised by the win, they expressed happiness that the well-deserving album received its dues.
