Star Singer, Davido Releases New EP ‘Son Of Mercy’ | Get it!

Sony Music International/Columbia Records singer Davido releases today his brand new EP Son Of Mercy across all digital service providers. The Afrobeats-influenced EP features 5 tracks, including his recently-released track “Gbagbe Oshi” (pronounced Ba-Bae Oshi ) and loosely translated as “kill the drama”. The video for this song premiered last week in honour of Nigerian Independence and has amassed well over half a million views in just one week, whilst the song is currently the number one streamed song across the African continent.

Davido additionally reveals a romantic video to his afrohouse inspired track How Long”, which features US born, Zimbabwean songstress – Tinashe. Directed by Frank Borin (Eminem, Backstreet Boys, Red Hot Chilli Peppers), it was filmed on location in Malibu. CLICK HERE to watch it now!

Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Nigeria, 23-year-old Davido (real name David Adedeji Adeleke) has ­­­always infused his Nigerian roots into his music and has been a major force in helping to cross over Afrobeats music globally. The singer/songwriter/producer chose to chase his music dreams after giving college a try, first releasing his crossover hit “Way Back When,” which planted him firmly in the Afrobeats music scene. Davido then charged forth into the mainstream with singles “Dami Duro,” “Omo Baba Olowo” “Gobe,” “Aye” and “Skelewu, which attracted the attention of Major Lazer and Wiwek to create a remix to the track. Davido has collaborated with many artists such as DJ Snake, Tinashe, Rae Srummerd, Trey Songz, Young Thug and more. Additionally, he has performed all over the world at sold out shows including the One Africa Music Festival at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Davido has earned two MTV Africa Music Awards and a 2014 BET Award for “Best African Act.”
