THE DMW REGIME!!

Davido Music Worldwide, popularly known as DMW is owned by popular African pop star, David Adeleke. DMW came into limelight sometime in April, 2016 when the Damiduro crooner was still signed to Honorable Kings of New-school (HKN) a label owned by his family and led by his senior brother, Adewale Adeleke, popularly called CHAIRMAN HKN. After spending about 5 successful years under the HKN platform as the lead artiste, alongside label mates and cousins in persons of Sina Rambo and B-Red. However Davido seemed to be the most  successful artiste under this label before he considered himself ready enough to be the Captain of his own ship, which birthed DMW.

2 years down the line,and I can say for a fact that DMW has been the most successful record label of the year. The music business worldwide has been structured in such a way that record labels and music companies have been the back bones of majority of  successful artistes  we have  ever seen and it’s always a huge deal when an artiste breaks through and stays relevant  without a label or any form of music organization behind them.

DMW kicked off with Davido as its first official artiste and has been growing tremendously  in a really short period of time.

Since the emergence of DMW in 2016, there has been no moment of sleep for these bunch of talented individuals, starting from the signing of Mayorkun and Dremo, who individually gave us huge hits like, ELEKO which got a wild range of response, even going further to get a million YouTube views in 10 days, making it the first ever debut song by a debut artiste to attain such height. Dremo also kicked off his career with debut hit song FELA, a cover he did for Designer’s PANDA, to the release of Davido’s  EP, Son of Mercy.

2017 however was definitely a  year to remember  for the DMW family, kicking off with Davido’s monster hit IF which was released in February and following it up with banging records  like, FALL, PERE, FIA and LIKE THAT which collectively gained over 200 million views  on YouTube. 2017 was also a great year for Mayorkun, who also churned out  hits back to back like SADE, MAMA and CHE CHE making him bag numerous prestigious awards including the HEADIES NEXT RATED AWARD which comes with a SUV and just when we thought DMW was done signing for that year, Davido announced the signing of another music power house, PERUZZI VIBES. The year 2017 was indeed a great year for DMW generally in terms of awards, breaking records and securing the bag. Not forgetting Davido’s world tour that consisted of Europe, America and Africa all in just one year, then crowning it all it with the sold-out 30 BG CONCERT held at Eko hotel and suites, Lagos in December.

We’re now in 2018, and DMW hasn’t only proven its supremacy amongst other records label, it has also reached standards set by past successful record label and set new standards for present and future labels too.  2018 started off with the dropping of ADA , a single which featured Davido and was owned by DMW’s in-house DJ, DJ ECool which received massive airplays on radio, TV and the streets.

ADA was followed up with ‘MIND’ a monster hit which featured DMW’s top artistes Davido, Mayorkun, Dremo and the newly signed Peruzzi who had  unarguably the best verse on the hit record, automatically stealing the hearts of music lovers. This song was produced by DMW’s producer FRESH-VDM who was first sampled on FIA and went on to produce almost all tracks that came out of the DMW camp. Moving on, they gave us hits like FLORA MY FLOWA, ASSURANCE, NWA BABY, AZA, BOBO, AJE, POSH, FANTASY and of course  the most talked about EP of the year, ‘CODENAME’ by DREMO.

On the 28th of October, Mayorkun announced the completion of his  debut album and hinted on releasing it before the end of the year.

So I guess ‘with these few points of mine” LOL, DMW can be comfortably crowned the King amongst all other record companies in Nigeria.
