B-Red also talked about his journey into music and his early struggles in Atlanta where he narrated how he hustled hard with his brother Shina Rambo.
According to B-Red, he was the one who asked Davido to start singing and after Davido blew up, he started hyping for him and this was how he also gradually became known and started his music career.
B-Red would eventually put out music with Davido and gradually get into the mainstream and enjoy some success.
B-Red's revelation is coming just a day after Davido caused a stir Twitter by classifying Burna Boy as one of the new cats.
In the interview, Davido stated that he and Wizkid were undoubtedly the first artists to blow out of Nigeria and take the music to an international audience. He then went further to say list some new talents whom he described as new cats who are taking Afrobeats to a global audience.
He mentioned Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun, and Asake as new cats while also including Burna Boy on the list.
Davido's statement has since attracted massive reaction across social media as some people agreed with the classification siting 2018 and 'YE' as the beginning of Burna Boy's stardom. On the opposing side are people who disagreed siting Burna Boy's early success with his 2012 hit single 'Like To Party' as evidence that he can't be classified as a new cat.
