Speaking on his return, Davido credits it to the love he received from his fans, family, friends, and loved ones.
“At some point, I couldn’t open my Instagram for weeks. One day, I just checked it and I saw messages from every kind of person in the world. I was like you’re fine, you see everybody is rooting for you. That was one thing that made me strong enough to stand up again, get back in the studio, and do what I love”.
