David Adedeji Adeleke, professionally known as Davido has narrated how he got a collaboration with American Rap legend, Nas.
The singer disclosed this in an interview with Reece Parkinson on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
When asked about how he met Nas, Davido said:
“Everything in this album really just happened with the Grace of God and it was just luck. I was at on of Hitboy’s studios working and I’m like ‘let me go to the bathroom real quick’. I use the bathroom and as I come out I’m washing my hands and I look to my right and I just see Nas. True story!
“He was like ‘Are you Davido?’ and I’m like ‘Yeah’. It was crazy.
“I went back to the studio recording and I look behind me and just see Nas comes in the studio, he’s bumping his head.
” I asked ‘Do you think you can give me a verse?’ and he agreed. 15 minutes later the verse was done. Two days later we shot the video and it was amazing”.
