Davido who was signed in January this year, to Sony Music Entertainment has completed work on his EP, and a release date has been set for the unveiling.
Davido made the revelation today on networking app, Snapchat, stating that the green light has been given for him to release the project. The EP, which is yet to be titled, also comes through with videos.
“I’m happy I waited, I’m about to turn up”, the singer wrote: “Happiest day of my life, finally got my date of release. September about to be a movie, best music and videos I ever made in my life.”
Davido’s recording process is being executively produced by Efe Ogbeni, the Sony Music executive, who brokered the deal, and works extensively with RCA Records, a subsidiary of Sony, which Ayo Jay is also signed to.
Photos of the singer in the studio have been a social media regular in the past three months.
After working with Meek Mill to release ‘Fans mi’ in 2015, the singer has more collaborations in the bag, with a few confirmed to make the project. US singer Tinashe is a big part of it, and will feature in Davido’s forthcoming single. The video has already been shot, with photos on the internet. Tinashe is half-Zimbabwean herself, so it remains to see what direction the sound will go.
Other collaborations which have been linked include Trey Songz, and Young Thug. These two stars were reported to have their features originally housed on the shelved forthcoming album, but they might just be thrown in. No confirmation yet.
Sony Music will be handling publishing and distribution of every work by the singer. It will be handled by Sony/ATV Music Publishing, a music publishing company, presently co-owned by Sony Music Entertainment and the estate of Michael Jackson.
In the US, the singer’s releases will be handled by RCA Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music. RCA Records is an American flagship recording label (alongside Columbia Records and Epic Records) of Sony Music Entertainment, SME.
The singer was recently interviewed by Ebro Darden on the Beats 1 by Apple Radio.
