Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has opened up on why he didn’t pay tribute to his late son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, in his fourth studio album, ‘Timeless’.
News has it that some fans have expressed mixed feelings over the album as it falls short of their expectations.
Many had thought the songs will be more focused on the singer’s late son, however, Davido chose to be more entertaining with the album.
Speaking during a press conference on Monday, April 17, ahead of the upcoming ‘Timeless’ concert in Lagos, scheduled for April 23, 2023, at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Davido said his main goal was to release a classic album with minimal or no emotional songs to prevent fans from becoming emotional following the loss of his son.
According to him, people who have followed his 12-year career in the music industry can attest he has always been a happy person, regardless of what he may be going through.
He added that if sad songs are to come, it will be an entirely different project on its own as he never had plans of combining them.
