Senegalese-American singer, Akon has picked a favourite singer between two of the greatest active African musicians, Davido and Burna Boy.
Speaking during a podcast co-hosted by N.O.R.E and DJ EFN, Akon opined that Davido is a better artiste.
He described that DMW boss as a beast.
He insisted the ‘Unavailable’ crooner deserves more credits than he is receiving.
He said, “Oh! I will probably go with Davido. Oh! David, that kid right there is a beast. He is the beast.
“He is another one I think that deserves more flowers than he’s received.”
Akon also stated that Nigerians are arguably the “smartest people” in the world.
He claimed that more billionaires are being made in Nigeria than anywhere in the world
Akon, however, admitted that there are a few “bad apples” tarnishing the image of the country.
He said, “This could be debatable, but the Nigerians are the smartest people on the planet. I promise you, there is nobody more smarter than a Nigerian. Of course, there is a few bad apples that came out. They [the bad apples] are extremely smart. But they put their intelligence all in wrong place.
“If they were to gear that towards something more positive or productive… Because the ones that did, there’s more billionaires being made in Nigeria than anywhere in the world.”
