Nigerian Afropop artist Oxlade has described his first encounter with David Adeleke, better known by his stage as Davido, of the Afrobeats genre.
The performer claimed that Davido gave him a full outfit from his collection of pricey clothing when they first met.
During a discussion, Oxlade explained that he and Fireboy DML’s song release from years prior was the catalyst for their meeting.
He revealed that when he first signed to YBNL Nation, he and Fireboy created and leaked a song because they thought the label would reject it.
Davido heard the song “Sing” after it was released and remarked that he plays it repeatedly.
The Away crooner also took to Twitter to say; ”Where has Oxlade been all my life?” Oxlade said he was sleeping when a friend woke him up to see that Davido tweeted about him.
He claimed that OBO invited him over, furnished him with an entire wardrobe’s worth of clothes, and took him out that same evening.
Oxlade claimed he also connected with Burna Boy and other notable figures that evening and realized it was his moment to shine.
