On the 1st of April, 2022, singer Davido was featured on the official soundtrack of the 2022 World Cup set to kick start in Qatar by the end of the year.
This obviously was seen as a big win as singer Davido became the first Nigerian artist to be featured in a World Cup theme song. While fans celebrated him on all social media platforms, it was noted that only few Nigerian celebrities reacted to this great win.
This was noted as social media users compared the way Nigerian music industry would have reacted if one of the other two tier A-list superstars had gotten the deal to feature on the official World Cup song instead of Davido.
Singer Davido who obviously was aware of this nonchalant attitude being manifested daily by his colleagues, made a tweet on his social media page obviously addressing the issue.
“ME vs THE INDUSTRY!!! I LOVE IT!!,” Davido tweeted.
Fans however have continued to react to this tweet while also celebrating the singer.
Below are some reactions from some social media users;
