As much as I’d like to disagree and slam Davido for being cocky about this, there is a very big truth to his statement. I honestly didn’t care much for the song till Davido jumped on the remix with Lil Kesh and Olamide.
This statement is however bound to bring about a ripple effects just like when Wizkid claimed that he is responsible for making Saeon’s ‘Boogie down’ a hit.
The BET award-winning pop star was featured by label mate, B-Red on his new single titled ‘Twerk’ and in the song, Davido says: ‘…she dey dance ooo, but she forget say na me make Shoki blow oooo.’
Before the release of B-Red’s ‘Twerk’ song, Davido was featured on the remix of Lil Kesh’s ‘Shoki’ alongside Olamide which dropped in July 2014 while the original version of the song dropped in March 2014.
For 2014, ‘Shoki’ has been one of the stand-out songs with singers, Orezi and Dre San also producing their own versions of the song.
At the moment none of the different ‘Shoki’ singers including Lil Kesh has responded to Davido’s claim of making ‘Shoki’ a hit.
