The musician is certainly not resting on his oars when it comes to representing Nigeria and putting Africa on the map. His recent venture into Hollywood seems to be paying dividends and he has now landed a new role in an upcoming movie.
Davido has announced his role as a taxi driver which is to be his second appearance in Hollywood after Coming to America 2. In a recent interview on Ionwannatalk Podcast, the musician spoke on his next project.
Naijawide sighted a video making rounds on social media where Davido admitted that he was going to be in another foreign movie but he won’t appear as a singer this time around like he did in Coming to America.
The ‘Risky‘ crooner told of his role and the producers of the movie. According to him, the movie is from the makers of the blockbuster 2006 movie, Black Diamonds. According to the DMW boss, he wants to take himself out of his comfort zone.
“I have another movie I’m doing with the dude that shot Blood Diamonds. I play a taxi driver.”
Davido also spoke of the build-up to Coming to America 2. The musician said he initially thought it was a scam email until he saw the cheque a day later.
He played the role of a stage performer in the movie, singing the hit song “Assurance”
