5 Davido Songs That Have Flopped In Recent Times (Time For Davido To Retire?)

Davido’s career has been on some kind of downward trajectory for quite some time now.

Unless we want to lie to ourselves, then we’ll say all is well. But all isn’t and everyone knows that.


He went on a hiatus and came back with a huge hit in 2020 (“FEM”). After that hit, he decided to pull up with an album, a follow-up to his 2019 album, “A Good Time.”

But “A Better Time” didn’t do him any good. It had neither the critical success of “Twice As Tall” nor the commercial success of “Made in Lagos.”

Davido hasn’t recovered from that album since. In the space of two years, he’s done quite a few stuff that have more or less flopped. Here are just five of them.

1. So Crazy ft. Lil Baby

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a song featuring a foreign artist get this much hate online. It seemed like nobody liked this one at all.

The song sure didn’t help “A Better Time” at all and based on how that song fared, Davido might not be working with Lil Baby anytime soon.

2. Hayya Hayya

How can a World Cup song suck like this? Why? Davido had one of the greatest honors any artist could get and he tried to make the best of it.

But if this is the best he can do with a huge deal like that, then I’m worried about what he’s going to do in the future. The song didn’t even chart in Nigeria!

3. Champion Sound

Davido tried to recreate the magic he made with Focalistic on “Ke Star” on this one and it backfired. Well, it just didn’t work his way.

Champion Sound” is amapiano all right, but it probably wasn’t what Davido was thinking it would turn out to be.

The song wasn’t even bad. It had the potential to be a big deal, but somehow it didn’t catch up. Why? Who knows?

4. CKay — Watawi

To be fair, Davido has been on a lot of features since 2020 and most of them have been good. Even this year, he was still on Skiibii’s smash hit, “Baddest Boy.”

But somehow, when he teamed up with CKay not too long ago, the song tanked. The song also features Focalistic and Abidoza, but even those names couldn’t help the song. Maybe the song is just bad.

5. Dababy — Showing Off Her Body

Now this one is the newest of the bunch. Dababy made a lot of noise about this one, coming to Nigeria to shoot the music video and all, but all of that didn’t amount to anything.

The new song has been the biggest flop we’ve seen from an American artist in a long time.

The music video for “Showing Off Her Body” has been released for three days and only has 1.1M views on YouTube. There’s no reason to expect it’d pick up by some miracle.

Call me a hater but only one question comes to mind now 👇🏼
