Mp3bullet.ng presents 10 Nigerian songs Davido delivered as a featured artist
Davido might have built his brand through regular performances as a lead artist, however, he has had some outstanding performances as a featured artist on other artists songs.
Sometimes his sheer rockstar status lifts tracks to the point where they overwhelm the records that he actually elevated with the purity of his talent and musical comprehension.
We honour the records that Davido actually enhanced with the purity of his talent, his superstar position, and his performance from this perspective.

Here are the 10 Nigerian songs Davido delivered as a featured artist;
Reminisce ft Davido – Daddy Mi
He hopped on ‘Daddy Mi,’ a single with Reminisce, in November 2013 to do what he does best: produce good music and drop memorable quotable lyrics.
As if his smug braggadocio wasn’t enough to irritate his detractors, he stated his desire to be wealthier than his father.
However, the beat introduced Davido to a new level of Nigerian Juju music, as well as introducing him to a wider audience with an owambe-worthy song.
Falz ft Davido and Olamide – Bhad Badoo Baddest
If there was ever a time Falz got a collaboration right, it was this song.
In this song, Davido proved he had more to offer when it came to delivering on an Afro-Trap beat and one of the reasons why his verse is still memorable to date was the controversies surrounding it.
Going from “I get like two million dollars for my account no be asset” to calling out Dele Momodu with’ “Mr Dele na my boy// Dele na my boy// If you come into my house// You go see my Toys”– every bit of his verse was iconic.
Sauce Kid X Davido-Carolina
The chorus of “Carolina” is a superb demonstration of Davido’s catchy energy, which he brings to every feature.
The song was released shortly after Davido’s major smash singles “Damiduro” and “Back When” began receiving exposure.
Sauce Kid had recently severed relations with his former record label, and Davido was the ideal guest to show that he could still pull off the best when the situation called for it.
“Carolina” went on to win the best collaboration award at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards that year.
Larry Gaaga ft Davido – Doe
Davido’s performance on this song wasn’t showy; instead, it was deliberate.
Most people credit the song’s success to the unique drum effects and beat, but Davido’s superstar confidence was the driving force behind the song’s success. He flexed, aced, and triumphed.
Patoranking ft Davido – Confirm
As a featured artist, this is one of Davido’s best performances. It may not have had the same impact as earlier Davido features, but it did highlight Davido’s often-overlooked artistic ability.
He reached a point where he stopped singing and appeared to be rapping. We need to hear whatever Davido did with this song again.

Kizz Daniel ft Davido – One Ticket
As his sophomore album approached its release date in 2018, Kizz Daniel needed another sure-fire smash. He needed another Davido touch for a smash, and oh, did Davido supply tales of a chaotic transactional relationship.
From its quotable lyrics to the vocalised adlibs, this one stands the test of time.
Adekunle Gold ft Davido-High
One beautiful part of Davido featuring in a song is the impact he always leaves behind. On “High,” Davido has audiences eating his words like he was the second Shakespeare.
Thanks to his verse, “Watimagbo” has now become the trending slang, a feat he has repeated with his previous features.
Larry Gaaga X Umu Obiligbo X Davido- Doubting Thomas
A Larry Gaaga and Davido combo could be compared to DJ Khalid and Justin Bieber on a track- they do what needs to be done.
The Larry Gaaga-owned song features South East highlife Musical duo, Umu Obiligbo.
Impressively, Davido sings part of his verse in Igbo, making the AFro-Highlife song taste like the best thing after Beans and bread.
Mayorkun X Davido-Betty Butter
Davido has collaborated with Mayorkun on several occasions and it was hard picking one, but “Betty Butter” would have to do for this list.
Mayorkun and Davido’s collaborations are always certain to be a hit, and “Betty Butter” is no exception. These two are the deadly duo Bonnie and Clyde would be if they were musicians.

Mc Galaxy X Davido-Nek Unek
The dancing routine in the video and the guitar chords may have made the song more memorable, but it was Davido who effectively lifted the record with his hook, storytelling, and quotable lyrics.
