Sadiq Onifade, the Nigerian singer better known as WurlD, has revealed why he gave the song ‘Blow My Mind’ to Davido.
In a recent interview with Ghana’s 3Music TV, Wurld said he initially intended to keep the song for himself but later decided to pass it on to Davido due to time constraints.
He said he was busy promoting ‘Love Is Contagious’, his second extended play (EP), and could not find suitable features for the track.
Wurld also expressed excitement with the success of the collaboration between Davido and Chris Brown, the US singer.
It was not planned. I was in Lagos promoting my project, ‘Love Is Contagious’,” he said.
It was even one of those things I did not plan for because I was going to use the song myself.
I wanted to get some features on the record, but I was promoting a new project, and I did not have time.
I did not have a use for ‘Blow My Mind’ at that time. Davido and Chris Brown, it is just a beautiful thing to lend my art with another artiste and at the same time see how well the song is done.
Released in 2019, ‘Blow My Mind’ appeared as the 15th track on ‘A Good Time’, Davido’s second studio album.
WurlD jumped on the music scene in 2012 with the song ‘Beyond Our Dreams’.
He has since released other songs including ‘Alive’, ‘Show You Off’, ‘All Night’, ‘Follow You’, and ‘Trobul’.
WurlD also received a nomination in the ‘Best Diaspora Act’ category of the Nigerian Entertainment Awards in 2017.
