Nigerian singer, Davido has finally revealed why he suddenly went AWOL on social media three months ago which put his numerous fans sitting on tenterhooks and others in suspense. Recall that the multiple award-winning singer announced a departure from all social media activities indefinitely somewhere in June 2020.
Speaking to Beat FM recently, Davido said he made that bold decision to cater for himself since he was obviously putting other’s interests at his own expense.
There was a lot going on. I was on tour. I was on the road for nine years and it took a toll on me for like a month and I thought that I need a break. Even I was telling myself that it was just going to take a week. But I thought that if I don’t slow down now, it may end in me breaking down because I’m a very strong person. If I break down, imagine how many people that I’m taking care of will break down as well. So I decided to move away and regroup.
“And it helped. I can’t tell you how happy I have become. I won’t say I’m a different person but I used to wake up at 9 pm because I’d record all night. I can’t sleep because I had things on my mind and then Coronavirus.
“I have never been at home for that long before. And I thought that if I have to do this, I have to get off social media. So, just stepping back really helped me a lot,” he added.
