In a tweet posted via his official account, Nigerian Pop musician and head of the DMW collective, Davido has said that he plans to open record labels for all the artistes signed to his DMW label.
The pop singer wrote “Setting up record labels for all my artist! I’d rather make bosses than be one”, followed by a bright red love emoji.
In that time, he has also expanded the DMW roster. In addition to Mayorkun and Dremo, 2018 has seen the introduction of producer, Fresh VDM; Peruzzi; Yonda; and a number of other affiliates.
Shuffling out of the HKN crew to start DMW indicated a desire to create a structure where he was the undisputed head honcho yet room was available to afford his proteges the limelight that comes with being associated with one of Africa’s two pop princes.
