“Back When” is Davido’s debut song which features rapper, Naeto C. In the song, Davido talks about how his struggle to fame.

All Of You

“All of You” reveals a conceited Davido who sees himself as a victim of unjust castigation. The lyrics of the song could be perceived as being arrogant which isn’t far from the truth but this was the star’s way of fighting back at people who didn’t like his music.


“Ekuro” is a to Davido’s love interest. Out of all the songs in the “OBO” album, “Ekuro” has the best lyrics and the songwriting was above average.

Although the beat and the lyrics were fine, the song still feels slightly off which could be due to the Mixing and Mastering.

In “Oversea” Davido partners with his cousin, Sina Rambo for a promised-filled love song.

In this song, Davido promises to take his girl on vacation and give her the best things in Life.
