A Collaboration From Davido and Cassper Nyovest Is on the Way

Davido described the song as a "classic."

It looks like a collaboration between two of the continent's biggest names will be coming our way in the near future.

Davido took to Instagram last night to share a snippet of him and Cassper Nyovest in the studio listening to a track that the pair had just laid down.

"Me and @CassperNyovest made a classic last nite!! WHAAAAAAAAT! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Out soon!! πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬xπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦," he wrote in the caption. You can hear a short snippet of the track in the video below.

Both artists are coming off major wins at this weekend's Sound City MVP awards, where Davido took home trophies for Song of the Year and Video of the Year, and Casper snagged an award for Best Hip Hop Artist.

With these two heavyweights on one record, there's no doubt that the song will be a major hit, that'll probably earn them more awards in the future.

We're hoping this will lead to more dope collaborations with other artists as well. Davido mentioned late last year that he'd love to work with none other than Cardi B, and we're still crossing our fingers for that one.

We're yet to receive an exact release date, but the two have warned that the track is "coming very soon," so be on the lookout.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
