Akon was asked a question about Davido and Burna Boy, two legendary musicians from Nigeria, during a discussion with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN on the Drink Champs podcast.
Akon made his preference clear, favouring Davido over Burna Boy.
He openly lauded Davido and called him a “beast” in the music business. Akon went on to say that Davido merits more praise and admiration for his talent and accomplishments.
