    Omo Baba Olowo which means Son of a Rich Man is the debut studio album by Davido and was released while he was under HKN Music on July 17, 2012

    The album was produced by Jay Sleek, Maleek Berry, GospelOnDeBeatz, Spellz, Dokta Frabz, Mr. Chidoo, Theory Soundz, and Shizzi.

    It features guest appearances from Naeto C, Sina Rambo, B-Red, Kayswitch, Ice Prince and 2Baba

    The album got mostly negative reviews for Davido’s lack of songwriting skills and to be truthful, the singer wasn’t the best of as of that time but one time was admirably about him, his hard work and passion for music.

    Dami Duro

    Dami Duro was released before the album in 2011. During an interview, Davido revealed he made the initial beat until Shizzi redid the song which became the official single.

    The beat which is fast-paced was one of 2011’s biggest songs of the moment catapulting Davido to the spotlight.

    Back When ft Naeto C

    “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 love song 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.

    Oversea ft Sina Rambo

    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.
