Late 2022, popular Nigerian musician Davido lost his son, Ifeanyi and went ahead to take a hiatus from social media, the music space and the world generally.
Although sighted a couple of times in Lagos by fans, Davido has been off the grid, grieving and cooking up what his fans believe to be the greatest project he has ever created.
Today, through an Instagram post, Davido has announced the release of his 4th studio album titled “Timeless”; set to drop on the 31st of March.
This is coming after his “A Better Time” album of 2020 which didn’t exactly record as much successes as many would have probably expected a project by one of the “African music trinity” to, but faith is strong that this one will, considering how much growth the artiste has experienced since then.
The announcement was made through a video snippet directed by Dammy Twitch with voice over by Davido and what is believed to be one of the tracks off the album in the background. Before this video, other visible rollout ideas by the artiste would be him taking off his social media posts and him – alongside other members of his 30BG/Plug NG team – removing their profile photos.
There’s no telling the sonic direction this album will take yet, but greatness is for sure one of the ingredients it will hold. Come March 31st.
