How Davido, Tiwa Savage & Mr Eazi Are Holding Up In This Pandemic Season
It’s no longer news that Covid_19 or novel Coronavirus has taken the world by storm, and it has changed the way we think and the way work.
About a few days ago, Nigerian music superstar Davido, Tiwa Savage and Mr Eazi were on the cover on May edition of Billboard Magazine, and aside from their busy schedule for the magazine photoshoot and others, they’re actually spending time with their kids, feeding their neighbours and jumping on Zoom calls with partners and artists they manage.
As Covid_19 continues to worsen the global market, changing the way will work or think, here is how our favourite musicians have stayed busy in their humble abodes.
“Man, it’s been crazy because my fiancée actually tested positive [for COVID-19 but has since recovered]. I was on tour in America, with six shows done and 19 sold-out shows left…. So we all came back home and did the test. My fiancée was in London with the baby. She’s the only one that came out positive. She had to isolate; I had to isolate. I did two tests after that, and they came out negative. I just got back home [to Lagos] a week ago. Since then I’ve been recording.”
“I had a tour planned, a bunch of festivals lined up. When it finally dawned on me that those weren’t going to happen this year, it made me wake up and realize how fragile life is and how we take it for granted. So I’ve been spending time with my son and speaking on the phone more with my family. More importantly, I’ve been giving out food to people around my neighborhood. I can quarantine for a month or couple of months, but some of these people don’t even have food for tomorrow.”
“I’m 19 minutes out of London, living in a small community and finally getting back to jogging. But musically, it’s been an eye-opener for me. During this lockdown, I’ve not recorded any new music. But I’m on Zoom calls almost the whole day working on my business or [talking] with one of my new artists, listening to records and setting up release plans. I thought I would have been frustrated by not being able to go out of the farm. But I’ve always been an entrepreneur, so this has been a next-level step for me in terms of investing more of my time and resources toward my business.”
