“Honestly, when I tried to cross to the American market, it didn’t work,” he admitted in an interview with Shade 45’s Sirius XM on Tuesday, February 26, 2019.

Davido is not the first person to try to crack this tough nut. Fellow Nigerian pop star Wizkid started to ease his way into the difficult American music market in 2012 with his bromance with international singer Chris Brown. This resulted in a song with the foreign music act called ‘African Bad Girl’ in late 2014. Before this song, he collaborated with rapper Wale in a 2013 track called ‘Drop’, and ‘Murder’ which was featured in Wizkid’s second album ‘Ayo.’ It was released in 2014.

He got a major break in 2015 when Drake did a remix to Wizkid’s sensational single ‘Ojuelegba’. “I think I put up something on my Instagram and Drake heard it and was like ‘yo dawg that shiii sounds crazy. We need to do something for my album real quick” he told Ebro during his Beats 1 on Apple Music interview.

His international profile continued to rise as he continued to collaborate with the famous rapper. He was featured on ‘One Dance’, one of the lead singles from Drake’s album, ‘Views’ in 2016. It was streamed over 1 million times on Spotify and got him a Grammy nod the next year.

In spite of their initial failed attempts at cracking up open this market, both Wizkid and Davido have done really well for themselves. They have both turned into two of Africa’s biggest musicians taking Afrobeats to the world with back-to-back hit singles, pricey endorsement deals, sold out concerts all over the world, global tours and great streaming numbers.
