African pop star, Davido last Thursday had an informal session with top journalists and bloggers as he was hosted by BlackHouse Media, Nigerian Entertainment Today and ID Africa in celebration of his recent Sony deal.

The session, which was moderated by THENETNG publisher, Ayeni Adekunle, however took an unusual turn when Davido, rather than being questioned, was the one asking questions about the perception of media men about his personality and rise in the music industry.

Responses were diverse with many disclosing that Davido’s consistency over the years is responsible for his impressive growth.

Music download portal, tooXclusive founder, Tyler Duncan-Sotubo on his part also expressed the fact that Davido is a top and winning brand.

‘He has put himself at that top position which has made him a winning brand. Anything Davido puts his voice on is usually a hit. Davido is a big brand,’ Tyler said.

A veteran journalist, Nseobong Okon-Ekong of Thisday Newspaper further disclosed that Davido has kept winning due to the hardwork put together by his team.

Other journalists who also bared their minds about Davido include Funsho Arogundade of PM News and Tosin Ajirire of Sun Newspapers.
