During a recent interview on the podcast “Echo Room,” B-Red, a renowned musician and Davido’s cousin, discussed his first meeting with Afrobeats icon, Burna Boy.
He also disclosed his encounter with another sensational singer, Wizkid.
B-Red recounted a day when he was in the company of Wizkid and he asked him about a budding artist with the best song in the industry.
B-Red said that he told Wizkid that the artist in question was none other than his cousin, Davido, who was on the rise in the music industry.
B-Red pointed out that this happened shortly after Davido released his hit single “Back When.”
The singer then proceeded to recall his first meeting with Burna Boy in Port Harcourt. He vividly described how Burna Boy, upon spotting their car, fervently pursued it while shouting, “I love you, B-Red! I love you, Davido!”; an enthusiastic display of admiration which resembled that of a devoted fan rather than a fellow artist.

This comes a few hours after Davido’s recent statement in an interview where he asserted that he and Wizkid are the old guys in the music industry, preceding ‘new cats’ like Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Asake and others.
