My 'Son Of Mercy' EP was rubbish - Davido says on fallout with Sony Music

Nigeria superstar Davido has finally opened up on his fall out with international label Sony Music. Davido who said this in an interview with Native Magazine, disclosed that he had to stop recording the type of songs Sony Music wanted because they did not resonate with him.
Talking about his 2016 extended playlist, ‘Son of Mercy’ which was released by Sony, the singer said he did not pick the songs that made the EP. He rubbished the EP and noted that he recorded it at a time when he was struggling for hit records.

He said “Nah, the EP was s**t. The songs were not picked by me, I wasn’t in the right place. I knew myself. I was like, ‘this is not Davido’. My career has always been on fire at all times, [‘till then] there was never a time that I didn’t have a hit out, and that time I didn’t have a hit. So I called Sony up, and I told them look, you have to let me do what I want to do. That’s what inspired Back to Basics. First, I had to stop making the music that they (SONY) wanted me to make. So I came back to Nigeria to record a couple of songs. That’s when I recorded ‘IF’ with Tekno"
