Watch Davido's New Music Video for 'D&G' Featuring Summer Walker

Davido, Summer Walker and London On Da Track serve a luxe aesthetic in the new visuals for 'D&G'.

Davido recently dropped the music video for "D&G". The track features on his A Good Time album which he released at the end of last year. The Nigerian superstar recruits Summer Walker and London On Da Track to serve an insanely luxe aesthetic for the vibrant visuals. Davido has also pledged to support the Dolce & Gabbana and Humanitas Together for Coronavirus Research Fund with the music video in order to support relief efforts amid the COVID-19 outbreak.


The music video for "D&G" sees the trio completely decked out in the luxurious Italian brand, Dolce & Gabbana. The use of bold and vibrant colors throughout is intentional on the part of the talented visuals collaborator, DAPS. There's no doubt that the visuals and the track play seamlessly off of each other to create a quality production.

The music video was shot while Davido was still in Los Angeles as part of his North American tour just a few months ago. However, he had to subsequently postpone the last leg of the tour due to the coronavirus outbreak.

His fiancé, Chioma Rowland, recently tested positive for the coronavirus but is now reportedly in the clear following a 23-day recovery in self-isolation.

In the artist's home country of Nigeria, there are now a total of 981 confirmed coronavirus cases and at least 31 deaths with several states having gone on 14-day lockdowns as part of efforts to curb the spread of the outbreak.

Nigeria’s LONDON Is Producing Afro Sounds of the Future

With a fresh Grammy nod and production work for big names like Wizkid, Rema, Johnny Drille, Ayra Starr and Tiwa Savage, the young beat smith's career is as bright as ever.

You may have heard his tag on your favorite afrobeats hits, it's so catchy that producers from other parts of the world have attempted to steal it.

Kaduna-bred star hitmaker LONDON is known for his futuristic and innovative fresh take on afrobeats. With bangers like “Gyrate” by Wizkid, “Koroba” by Tiwa Savage and “Soundgasm” by Rema under his belt, it’s crazy to think his journey as a music producer only started in 2018.

Born Michael Ovie Hunter as an only child in London, England to a Hausa mom and British dad, then raised in Kaduna, Northern Nigeria, producer LONDON’s journey into music production isn't exactly far-fetched. He started out with a passion for graphic design before experimenting with keyboards and drums at his church, where he recorded melodies to impress his friends at school. Like many Nigerian artists, LONDON got his start making music at church where many of his family members were heavily involved in the choir . He first downloaded Fruity Loops Studio software on his laptop in 2018 but he felt discouraged because couldn’t figure out how to use it. After hanging around his friend's studio and several Youtube tutorials later, LONDON finally understood the whole music production ‘thing.’

LONDON’s early compositions caught the attention of veteran Nigerian music producer BabyFresh, the architect behind some of Nigeria’s biggest afro pop hits in the past decade such as “‘Allover” by Tiwa Savage, “Problem” by Reekado Banks and “Adaobi” by the Mavins. He took him under his wing and taught him the tricks of the trade in music production. This brought LONDON closer to the Mavin Records family where Baby Fresh is an in-house producer, ultimately leading to his big break in the industry.
