Nigerian music star, Davido hit another milestone as he was named one of the next 100 most influential people in the world for 2021 by Time Magazine.

Davido in his reaction wrote on his social media platforms: ‘Proud to be included in the inaugural #TIME100Next list”.

Meanwhile, the excerpt for the selection of Davido was written by Nigerian rapper and BBNaija Lockdown season 5 winner Laycon, according to the magazine.

It reads, “Davido is one of the biggest voices in Afrobeats because his music connects with people, often in ways that transcend his expectations.

“When he released the song “FEM” in 2020, a title that loosely translates to “shut up” in Yoruba, he didn’t know it would become a major #EndSARS protest anthem.

“The youths banded together to demand the government take action to end police brutality in Nigeria last October.

“Officials responded by sending politicians to give speeches. We told the government to keep quiet unless they had something sensible to add to the ethos of “FEM” which was directly relatable at that moment.

“You can tell Davido puts 100% into every song he makes. And the results are clear: his album ‘A Good Time’ surpassed a billion streams in 2020.

“Afrobeat is a worldwide phenomenon and Davido is one of many Nigerian artists who has made that possible.”

However, more artists, from Nicki Minaj to Young Thug, want to work with him.

Davido’s song ‘IF’ which recently sold 500,000 copies in the U.S,  has been certified gold.

Other Nigerians on the list include Odun Eweniyi, FK Abudu and Dami Odufuwa.

“Being rich is not the birthright of men alone” – Linda Ikeji to ladies

Linda Ikeji speaks on definition of success

Nigerian celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, has advised ladies, saying being rich is not the birthright of men alone.

On Thursday afternoon, she shared her definition of success as a woman on her Instagram page and shared how she believed women should view themselves.

Linda Ikeji wrote, “Dear young lady, I hear you! If that’s how you see life and want to live life, it’s your choice! To each his own. As for me, I’d rather be as rich as those men who must pay me for being beautiful. Being rich is not the birthright of men alone. I’d rather be their contemporary than waiting for their handouts.

I know many believe it’s a man’s world; maybe it is, but with fearlessness, strength, determination, and grace, women can dominate and thrive in it. So, instead of waiting for men’s charity, I’d rather start early to fight for my dreams, build my business(es), break boundaries, and if God allows, shatter tables.

I want to get to a point in my life where I can get myself anything I want that money can buy without having to beg or sleep with any man to get it. I want to go into a store, see a $60k Cartier watch that I love, and pay for it, instead of wondering which man I’ll call and plotting all the things I will say and do to get him to buy it for me.

I know that my greatest superpower as a woman is being financially independent, as this will give me the choice to live life on my own terms, date or marry whoever my heart wants and walk away when it no longer serves me, instead of being forced to stick with a man I can no longer stand because I can’t stand on my own.

I want when a man comes into my life, no matter how rich he is, for his money to be a bonus and not my only source of livelihood. And as he gives to me, which I will happily collect, I will give to him in return.

I want to dress as sexy as I like and enter any place without a man walking up to me and asking how much it will cost to take me home for the night because he knows who the F I is… a boss babe with her own business as rich as he is.. or maybe even richer! .

Seriously, I’d rather, if God forbid I end up with a deadbeat, be able to give my child(ren) the absolute best life without having to be at the mercy of a scornful & bitter ex.

With all humility, I refuse for the quality of my life to be dependent on the benevolence of men. I want the protection, power, and security that comes with having my own money. But like I said in the beginning, that’s just me! To each his own!.”
