Davido has confirmed the release date of his sophomore album.
HKN singer to release album June 8, defends missing Nigeria elections
The HKN star will be releasing his album on Monday, June 8, 2015, a day after his graduation from Babcock University.
Davido revealed this fact in Kenya over the weekend where he performed at the 5th Afrobeatz Festival, Davido said: “I’m inviting all of you for my graduation on June 7, then on June 8 I launch my album. I have worked hard for this degree, day in day out.
“If I am in China today and I have exams tomorrow, I better get to school tomorrow or else everything is a bust. I have worked on this degree for like six years now. Before I became famous I was in school so I had to take a break, but about two years ago, I went back to school.”
Davido didn’t have a perfect outing in Kenya, as many fans took to social media to lambast him over his performance, with guests accusing him of being under the influence of alcohol.
His gig in Kenya coincided with the Nigeria general elections, which sparked fury in many citizens who took to social media to express their displeasure.
Davido offered a defence against that, emphasising that his show was booked for last year, when the date of the elections was still February 14. The postponement of the election resulted in a clash, which put him in a tight position.
“First of all the Nigerian elections were supposed to be on February 14 and I was booked for this show last year”. Davido stated. “What was I to do? As an artiste it all comes down to business, I gave my word I would be here on this day. They moved the elections. That is not my fault.”
Davido’s forthcoming album is expected to feature collaborations from international acts like Meek Mill, Drake, Wale and others.
