This habit of ridiculing someone because he or she doesnt meet our standards of what success should be has to go.
Yes beyonce made an album with a lot of our faves and somehow it became about Davido not being on the project
Like how does this make any sense

Beyonce said to have pick talent in Africa. Exemption of Davido means if you have Davido’s talent you will waste it. Is Yemi Alade better than Simi or Sheyi Shay?

@Ibksammie “According to them, they had to search for the best talents in Africa. Are they indirectly saying OBO no get talent? Shatta Wale is on the album, and Davido could not make it. Even Yemi Alade made the album with her tumtum music.”
@Fynfaze “It takes a talented artist to shutdown the 02 Arena. If we’re to talk about talent then Yemi Alade won’t even come close with her wack lyrics bro. Beyoncé only made her choice. David remains one of Africa’s best today, tomorrow and forever.”
