Bovi Recounts How A DJ Almost Ruined Davido’s Career 10 Years Ago 3

Nigerian comedian and actor, Bovi Ugboma has recounted how Davido’s career was almost ruined by a popular disc jockey 10 years ago.

The award-winning comedian posted a photo of Davido’s Dami Duro CD  as he celebrated his 10th anniversary. The caption was accompanied by a long and well-detailed narration about one of the times he witnessed Davido being harassed by a popular DJ when he was still an upcoming artiste.

Bovi noted that he knew Davido was going to be a superstar and other artists confirmed this fact after he released Dami Duro. Bovi also shared how a  popular DJ at Koko Lounge refused to play Davido’s song cause he didn’t greet him.

According to Bovi, the DJ whom he refused to reveal his identity adamantly refused to play Davido’s song twice even after fans and Davido had pleaded with him. He recalled how Buchi the comedian and owner of Koko lounge had instructed that the Dj play Davido’s song, but he refused.

“Davido walked into koko lounge with a few of his friends. Then the 30 billion gang was still in its embryonic stages so the small venue could accommodate his entourage.

Koko lounge was the biggest comedy club by reputation and Wednesdays were the best comedy nights. It was such a famous Wednesday, many artists came to perform their new hit songs just to market to the organic audience. If they vibed to your new song, the artist was sure the song was gonna be a hit.

Dami Duro had just dropped. So with Davido walking into the lounge, people were already excited. He waltzed through the ecstatic audience to the VIP section to take his seat while trying not to disturb the comedian that was on stage. We all sat to watch the show In Anticipation of Davido’s performance. The time came and he hit the stage. The atmosphere was frenzied, everyone was on their feet as the famous beats of the song gyrated the speakers; we were drunk and screaming, the girls lost their home training, the boys lost their manners! As everyone pranced and danced, the unthinkable happened…. unplug. The dj set went off.

The pissed-off DJ deliberately switched it off. His gross was “davido no greet am when he come” A miasma of anger filled the air. The audience went from happy to irate. Davido surprisingly was still begging this DJ. This was a room of about 45 loyal Wednesday customers eager to party but One dj said, “davido no greet am”. @buchicomedian angrily instructed that the music came back on. They were ruining his club’s reputation, he warned. The music started again and as if it hadn’t even started before, the hall exploded with ecstasy.

One didn’t need to be drugged to be caught up in this mood. Davido doubled his energy and his infection spread across the room. Then it happened again. The DJ unplugged his set, again! There was this brief silence and then loud protests. Oga dj was hell-bent on sabotaging the “small boy wey no get respect”. And that was how the evening ended abruptly. I remember assuring the DJ that he’d be fired in the morning.
Well, the most important part of the story is that Davido left and went on to become a superstar. Happy ten year anniversary @davido” 

 

Concurring to Bovi’s story, Buchi shared some details Bovi missed out on. Still careful not to reveal this DJ’s identity, Buchi stated that the DJ was fired the next day and the DJ who played Davido’s song was hired. He added that the hired DJ later became Wizkid’s personal DJ and is doing well in the United States.
