Nigerians hail Laycon for writing amazing article about Davido on Time Magazine

Nigerians are currently hailing BBNaija winner of Season 5, Olamilekun AGBELESHE, popularly known as, Laycon, for his amazing writeups for Davido. Nigerian singer, Davido, was listed among Time 100 Next. 



Laycon wrote an incredible piece of article for Davido on Time Magazine. He wrote about Davido's achievements, his End SARS activism with his song "FEM" and how upcoming artistes look up to him. Here's beautiful piece Laycon wrote about Davido:



"Davido is one of the biggest voices in Afrobeats because his music connects with people, often in ways that transcend his expectations. When he released the song “FEM” in 2020, a title that loosely translates to “shut up” in Yoruba, he didn’t know it would become a major #EndSARS protest anthem, as youth banded together to demand the government take action to end police brutality in Nigeria last October. Officials responded by sending politicians to give speeches. We told the government to keep quiet unless they had something sensible to add—the ethos of “FEM” was directly relatable to that moment.

You can tell Davido puts 100% into every song he makes. And the results are clear: his album A Good Time surpassed a billion streams in 2020. Afrobeats is a worldwide phenomenon, and Davido is one of many Nigerian artists who has made that possible; now more and more artists, from Nicki Minaj to Young Thug, want to work with him.
By bringing Afrobeats to the global stage, he’s paved the way for people like me.

Laycon is a musical artist from Nigeria."

In another news, Davido's Fall has gotten the Gold plaque in the US. Davido has taken to his Twitter page to celebrate his new success. In his tweet, he wrote:

"My 2nd Gold record !!! Oh God I am Grateful !! The Only two Afro beats solo singles to go Gold in the USA in Afro beats history !! God is good !!! 
Red heart
Red heart
 Flag of United States
 Flag of Nigeria
 MORE TO COME."
