I mean it when I said Davido always does something similar to me - Specdo

Afro-Pop singer, in an interview with Vanguard, dispelled reports that were circulating in the media, claiming that Davido stole his song 'Blow My Mind'.

Specdo said the controversy is something the media created, claiming that he only said the DMW Records Label owner, Davido always did things similar to what he, Specdo does.

“I never said Davido steal my song. It’s the media that make it loud. I mean it when I said Davido always does something similar to me which I can’t hold anymore. That is why I posted it on my Instagram page in 2020 and it went viral that Davido stole my song,” he stated.

He said that in 2014, he composed a song titled 'Owo niko' that wasn't released due to financial constraints. But he did some viral videos that he posted on Facebook. That year, Davido released 'Owo Nikoko'. 

"I was shocked."

“When I was able to raise money, I shot musical videos and posted same on YouTube. So, I can’t really say Davido steal my song because anyone can compose something similar to one already done. That is music for you.”

Specdo decided to release another song titled, 'Bow My Mind' in 2020, according to him.

"My song was out on MTV Base and the rest of them and suddenly, Davido announced the release of his song with the same title. That was when I posted on my IG, asking what is going on.

“Yesterday (Thursday last week) was 16th of July and I have announced the release of my song “Ginger” for long in all my social media handles. If you check Davido’s pages, you will see that that he has chosen the same 16th to release his music video featuring Chris Brown,” Specdo pointed out.
