Also, the song ushered many o into the Davido brand experience, as a number of music lovers will agree the song brought the heat to the dance floor in its own unique way.
‘Dami Duro’ was produced in a mixed pattern of African and western music flow popularly called “Afropop”. The instrumentals were a good combination of several sounds fused to form a piece of alluring music.

The plot of the song was well developed, although the lyrical structure were not so “great” in terms of CONTENT.

The song started with the singer introducing himself as the beat producer. Thereafter, with confidence and a perceived arrogant way, the singer indicated how rich his father is, how rich he (Davido) is and how there was nothing anybody can do to stop his success in the Music Industry. This can be said to be the beginning of his bragging story encased in his music.

Till date, every time we listen to the song, we love the vibes it brings..

Ooiiinnn as my people will say, the song did well!
