In-case you don’t know, Davido is an Afrobeat artist and the most renowned in Nigeria, in all my event coverage experience he’s always the last performer, and when he leaves the stage, everyone leaves the event.
Apparently this is a tit bit for event organizers, don’t feature David first if you have other artistes especially if the event is staged in Nigeria.
Arguably Davido is Nigeria’s biggest artiste and this is why he’s the most endorsed musician in Nigeria.
Popular Yotuber Tayo Aina released one of his biggest content of all time, in my opinion going on an exclusive trip with Davido, flying on the same private jet is the peak of all contents.
And so the content creator did justice to this trip giving us all the intrigues, suspense and it was like a reality TV series. In this trip we had a one on one experience with Davido and his 30BG crew, taking off from Lagos, Nigeria, on a long flight to Botswana, Tayo gave us some insights and i will highlight 10 things i learnt from his adventure with Davido.

Tayo Aina revealed he was meeting Davido for the first time and even before he approached the most followed African Musician he already stretched his hands to shake the Youtuber and he added ‘I watch your videos.

2. Davido unlearned and relearned

3. Davido is a boss and a team player:
Don’t forget, before the trip to Botswana Davido had finished his Timeless concert and no time to rest he slept while on flight and he constantly reminded his team to keep to time.
Arriving Botswana at some point Davido allowed his team members manage his affairs he wasn’t forward.
