Son Of Mercy is the hotly anticipated 5 track EP by Nigerian superstar – Davido available for pre-order across all DSP’s TODAY! via Columbia Records. In time to celebrate Nigeria’s Independence on Oct 1, if fans pre-order the EP, they will receive an instant grat of ‘Gbabge Oshi’, (pronounced Ba-Bae Oshi) and loosely translated as ‘kill the drama’.
The EP also features R&B it-girl Tinashe who brings a typically sensual cameo to the mix on the track ‘How Long’ set to go live on Oct 14. The US born songstress of Zimbabwean heritage also co-stars with Davido in the video, shot on location in Malibu. Production on the feel-good track comes courtesy of British born, Nigerian songwriter Parker Ighile (Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Ariana Grande).
Not many music artists can claim iconic status within just five years of starting out, but at the age of 23, the Atlanta-born Nigerian singer/songwriter, producer and label owner can do just that. Davido – (real name David Adedeji Adeleke), is one of the most recognised flag bearers for the current wave of African artists on the rise. Charging forth onto the music landscape with the monstrous soaring classic Dami Duro in 2012, he has since then become the talk of an entire continent, securing not just the buy-in of African fans by the multitude but also unanimous media acknowledgment, with accolades including a plethora of nominations for prestigious awards and winning two MTV Africa Music Awards and a BET Award.
