Davido, who explained the reason behind the
delay, cited the interest of a ‘big corporation’
with distribution interests as responsible for
the delay.

enough, two days before we were about to
drop the album, we got a call from a very big
corporation that wants to be involved in the
album distribution, that’s why we pulled
back,” he said.
“There’s no point doing things the same. If
you are going to do it big, there’s no point
doing it at all. That’s why I chilled back, and
I want to let the big corporations do their
work. But the album is coming,”he further
Reports also revealed that prior to signing
the deal, Davido consulted with renowned
entertainment lawyer, Joel Katz, seeking
advice and legal counsel.

year. Davido is expected to first release an EP
to promote his brand in the US. That EP is
tentatively set for release in August. The first
single is to be released next month, with the

work on it.

collaborations on it, and it is expected to be
his first introductory project”. A source close
