DMW Wiki and History
The creation of Davido Music Worldwide was announced to the world by Davido in 2016 as his own separate label after leaving HKN Music. The first acts to be signed to the label were Mayorkun and Dremo.
The popular logo of the record label has a baby face wearing a gold chain with the initials “OBO” on it is actually the face of the artiste’s first daughter, Imade Adeleke when she was much younger.
Today, with Asa Asika as the manager of Davido, the label’s talent manager and also the owner of the PLUG Media which is affiliated with the label, and Sir Banko, GM/President of the label, the future is looking good for the label.
Asides from Davido, Mayorkun is one of the acts under the label that has been able to grow under the label. He won the Headies Next Rated in 2018. Unlike many other labels in Nigeria headed by artists themselves, this is one label that is truly growing.
