Well-known Nigerian Afrobeats artiste David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, has shared some exciting news with Esquire Middle East about his upcoming project.

The gifted musician revealed that “David,” a brand-new docu-series that will be available on Netflix, is what he is currently working on.

The goal of the series is to give viewers a close-up and in-depth view into the Aye singer’s life while recounting the incredible story of his ascent to fame.

The 2018 BET Award winner for Best International Act revealed during his chat with Esquire Middle East that the project will be released in December. “With Netflix, my movie will be released in December. It’s enormously large. Actually, this is the first time I’ve mentioned it. The documentary David is a documentary about my life. It’s about everything that has happened in my life”, the Unavailable crooner noted.

Netflix Series – David

Davido is not one African music icon noted for taking extended breaks from his career. It is therefore not surprising that his Netflix series premiere, which will follow a lengthy musical hiatus, is only a few months away.

It is anticipated that the upcoming documentary will delve deep into the situations, both personally and professionally, that have formed the 2014 MTV Africa Music Award winner for Artiste of the Year’s career. Viewers will be able to experience the highs and lows of his riveting journey, from his early beginnings in the Nigerian music industry to his international breakthroughs and achievements.

Beyond headlining significant international festivals and working with well-known musicians from around the world, a Netflix series with the working title David, seems like the logical next step.

For many of Davido’s fans worldwide, the Netflix series will be a welcoming and exciting Christmas gift, considering the fact that the singer is also known and loved for his personality.

The 30-year-old who is renowned all over the world, aims to forge a stronger bond with his audience by sharing personal anecdotes and shedding light on the less-publicized aspects of his private life.

A great deal of excitement has been generated by the news of David among fans and industry insiders who are eagerly awaiting an intimate view into the life and thoughts of the renowned artiste.
