REASON WHY DAVIDO TERMINATED IDOWEST’S CONTRACT

REASON WHY DAVIDO TERMINATED IDOWEST’S CONTRACT

 

It seems all is not well in the camp of Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) owned by one of Nigeria’s finest artiste, David Adeleke AKA Davido. One of its most recent signees, Idowest, who was popular for his ‘Shepeteri’ song has reportedly left the label.

Davido signed the talented artiste on May 24, 2018 and announced on his Instagram page with the caption ‘’Welcome to DMW !! IDOWEST!!!!!! You have proved ur worth!!!! NOW LETS GET MONEY!! JI MASUN’’. The fans of Davido and Idowest all leaped for joy after the great announcement but 6 months later, all seems to have turned sour between both of them.

On Idowest’s Instagram page, he has also changed his booking mail to his personal one instead of DMW’s.

Few days ago, the rising artiste also celebrated his birthday, a lot of people wished him a happy birthday but DMW Boss, Davido never did, this is beginning to raise eyebrows that all is not well with both parties.

It would also be recalled that they did a song together titled ‘Ji Masun’ weeks after the well popularized signing. This makes him the sixth addition to the ever growing family that houses Davido, Mayorkun, Dremo, Peruzzi and Yonda, with Ichaba remaining an affiliate. With the group compilation album scheduled to be released next month, Idowest is expected to bring his street flavour to some of the joints.

Here are five things you need to know about DMW’s latest signing, Idowest.

  1. His real name is Adekunle Idowu

Adekunle Idowu is more popularly known by his stage name Idowest
The name Idowest was carved out of his original name Idowu, which is a Yoruba name for someone born after a set of twins.

He represents the Lagos Island area of Lagos State.

  1. Idowest refers to himself as the King of Shaku Shaku

The shaku shaku vibe is one hit that gained mainstream acceptance last year with acts like Idowest, Slimcase, Mr Real and even Skales laying claim to being progenitors of the wave.

But the rapper who has been on his grind for quite a while now, claims that he was introduced to shaku shaku from his secondary school days and has been making the type of sound since then.

In his words, ”I have been doing Shaku shaku before the vibe even came up, that’s why people call me Idowest, Aro Mafia aka the King of Shaku Shaku”.

  1. Idowest has been signed to three labels in two years

Idowest penning a contract with Dammy Krane’s World Star Inc in December 2017.  Now it gets interesting when you discover that the artist has put pen to paper on three different record deals in less than two years.

On June 15, 2017, the young rapper signed with P4 Music, owned by a Mr Sodiq, but following his return from being cleared of all charges leveled against him in the US, Dammy Krane revived his label, Worldstar Inc and on December 15 2017, he announced his first signing in the person of Idowest.

Following the official announcement by Davido, Idowest has now gotten signed to three labels, perhaps as a pointer to the talent that he possess.

  1. He was a former member of the M.A.F.I.A gang

Other members of the group include, C Black and Abram Soul and they released singles like Panda (Cover) and Umbele.

  1. Idowest was nominated at the 2018 Headies

Idowest has grown his art steadily over the past couple of years, from getting attention with his single Eko alongside former HKN member Danagog to his ground-breaking single, Omo Shepeteri which featured Dammy Krane and Slimcase released late last year.

The song earned Idowest a nomination in the Best Street Hop artist category at the Headies 2018 music awards which was won by Small Doctor.
