Davolee is one of Nigeria’s best rappers. Talent-wise, only a few are better. As much as we’ve seen instances of his application on his Festival Bar franchise, his self-confessed hot-head, unpredictability and the ever-evolving state of the Nigerian music industry means that, his opportunities to showcase are few and far between.
In 2020, he released his debut project: additions to the ‘Festival Bar’ franchise. He has since returned with his debut album, Earning Wish. With a title that underlines his current state in his career, he has also become a new father. On ‘Fatherhood,’ he discusses how his partner named Oyin, then a final year student at a Nigerian university, got pregnant with their child.
After much rancour, Davolee decided that they would keep it. Now, he has grown sentimental and hungrier, determined to put his talent to use, and leave a legacy for his baby girl. ‘Earning Wish’ is a result of this phase: another crack at Davolee’s utilization of his well-documented talent.
