Listen to Davido's New Album 'A Good Time'

The new album from the Nigerian superstar features Naira Marley, Zlatan, Popcaan, Summer Walker and more across 17 tracks.

Davido's much anticipated album A Good Time has finally dropped.

Trust us when we say that it's aptly named. After incredibly successful singles and collaborations, the Nigerian superstar is in top-form on this new 17-track project. Naira Marley, Zlatan, Popcaan, Chris Brown, Summer Walker, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, WurlD, Dremo, Peruzzi, and Yonda are all featured on the album.


Production across the album comes from the likes of Kiddominant, Shizzi, London On Da Track, Speroach Beatz, P2J and more.

Davido mentions: "A Good Time. It's been a long 7 years. A lot has transpired in my life since my debut album Genesis, and I, David Adeleke (aka Davido) have gone through a process of immense changes and growth. In sad times I lost close family and friends (RIP) and in my happiest times I've created lives (Imade, Hailey & David Jr). I fell in love and got engaged to my PHENOMENAL fiancé, Chioma. I've fought battles of all kinds and on all fronts: spiritual, physical, mental, emotional even political."

"A Good Time reflects on the ability to trust the timing of your life, enjoying the best moments & persevering through the worst ones. There's no time like the present and it's A Good Time to be alive, to be a PROUD AFRICAN and to fight for the freedom of one another - in unity," Davido continues.

A Good Time shows off Davido's signature sound (afrobeats, afropop and tinges of high-life) while not straying too far from him his well-known style. From uptempo tracks including "1 Milli" and "Risky" to mid-tempo tracks such as "Sweet in the Middle," "D&G," and "Green Light Riddim," the album strikes a good balance between both.

Davido also includes his past hit singles "If", "Assurance" and "Fall" on the new album. "Fall" has become the longest charting Nigerian song in Billboard history. It's video is also the most watched Nigerian music video on Youtube ever, currently . sitting at 150 million views.

We've still got this album stuck on repeat but some of our favorite tracks so far include "Get to You", "Risky", "Sweet in the Middle" and "1 Milli".

After successfully commentating at the recent Basketball Africa League held in Kigali, award-winning sports journalist and analyst Usher Komughisha is dead set on pursuing a new challenge.

Most times, when we think of sports industry personalities, especially in Africa, the first name that springs to mind is usually that of a male. Women, however, are increasingly breaking barriers and taking up their rightful positions everywhere in society. And it's so inspiring to watch!

If you followed the inaugural Basketball Africa League (BAL) competition that kicked off on May 16, 2021 in Kigali, Rwanda, then you definitely know who we are talking about. With great power, control and a unique voice, Usher commanded the attention of basketball lovers in the 215 countries it was broadcasted to.

Usher's bubbly personality, which shone through when I first contacted her telephonically, brought warmth, a sense of comfort and for a minute it felt like we'd been friends for eternity. Below, she lets us into her sport-filled world...
