In a recent interview, Davido said he had been a fan of Asake and wanted him to be on his album.
The singer mentioned that he first contacted his friend and YBNL boss, Olamide, who helped him get in touch with Asake.
Davido further revealed that the collaboration came together despite some delays due to Asake’s touring schedule.
“Shout-out to Asake. I am a very big fan of him and his story and just the way he just came out and just scattered everywhere,” he said.
“I was like, ‘Ah I have to get him on my album’. With just his style and everything, I just wanted to work with him. So, I dm the boss man Badoo. I did not write Asake first o. I went to my brother first. So, I wrote Olamide. I was like Badoo, ‘I’m doing my album I need Asake on a verse o’. I did not even think Asake would give anybody a verse, so Badoo was just like, ‘send the song’,” Davido added.
The single with Asake’s collaboration titled, ‘NO COMPETITION,’ is NO. 13 on the newly-released project.
In addition, the album, ‘Timeless,’ has since garnered over a million streams on all music streaming platforms, and also received international recognition in the United Kingdom, as well as, the United States of America.
