CR7 eyes Nigerian music, may work with Davido first
On Wednesday, June 21, the world of football crossed paths with the world of Nigerian music as football star Cristiano Ronaldo followed Davido on Instagram.
The Real Madrid star, who is currently leading his country at the Confederations Cup, followed the Omo Baba Olowo and Aye crooner on the social media platform who couldn’t stop raving at it.
Davido took to Instagram to announce the big moment in his career. “All my guys call me @cristiano!! MADRID HERE I COME!!” he wrote.
The Portuguese playmaker also liked a video of Davido in which the pop star placed his single Fall on the football star’s Champions League highlights. In Davido’s new single, the pop star name checked Cristiano Ronaldo on the record. CR7 is a lover of music and he has a few music stars as friends such as Lil’ Wayne.
This is not the first time a football star has publicly shown his affection for Nigerian music. In 2013, Dutch striker Robin Van Persie said he was a fan of Psquare.
In 2016, Manchester United stars Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard were recorded dancing to Wizkid’s single Come Closer featuring Drake. West Ham winger, Wilfred Zaha hung out with Wizkid at his Hunger magazine photo shoot in April 2017.
