“Transitioning: Davido’s Retirement Plans Post-Album Release”

by Chidera Perpetual


Renowned Afrobeats maestro, Davido, has recently stirred the music industry with unexpected news of a potential retirement following the release of his upcoming album. In a candid expression of frustration on social media, Davido hinted at the possibility of stepping away from the limelight, citing external pressures and a longing for tranquility.

“Y’all really want me out the game that bad? After next album, I’m out. So y’all can have peace,” Davido shared in a recent post, reflecting a sentiment of weariness amidst ongoing challenges within the music sphere.

This revelation arrives amidst Davido’s vocal discontent regarding the lack of peace within the industry. In an earlier post, he expressed a desire to find solace elsewhere, musing in pidgin English, “Since I came in the game, they never get peace, I love it! Let me find somewhere with a beach to relax.”

The celebrated artist has recently been embroiled in controversies, notably engaging in a public spat with fellow musician Wizkid. Tensions escalated when Davido responded to a video shared by Wizkid, characterizing his rival’s career as “dead.”


Prior to this announcement, Davido had voiced concerns about potential alliances against him within the industry, particularly cautioning against collaborations between Burna Boy and Wizkid. “Nobody will gang up against me such that it would work. It hurts me sometimes. I’ve tried with Burna but how long will I keep doing that? It’s either you don’t like me or… I’m saying this now,” he expressed in a past interview

Davido’s musical journey began in 2011 with the release of his debut single ‘Back When,’ followed by his debut album ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ in 2012. Since then, he has rapidly ascended to stardom with chart-topping hits like ‘Dami Duro,’ ‘Aye,’ ‘If,’ and ‘Fall,’ solidifying his status as a music icon.

Throughout the past decade, Davido has consistently delivered groundbreaking singles and albums, including ‘A Good Time’ and ‘A Better Time,’ released in 2019 and 2020, respectively. His most recent album, ‘Timeless,’ comprising 17 tracks, was unveiled on March 31, 2023, captivating audiences worldwide.

The revelation of Davido’s potential retirement signals a moment of introspection not only for the artist himself but also for the broader landscape of Afrobeats and the challenges artists face within the industry. .
