Who Is Davido?

Facts about Davido-shaidysworldDavid Adedeji Adeleke, popularly known as Davido , is a Nigerian singer, songwriter, and record producer, from Osun State, Ede. The 26 years old was born on November 21, 1992 To Chief Adedeji and Vero Adeleke in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. His father is a Nigerian businessman and his Late Mother Veronica Imade Adeleke was a University lecturer. Davido made his music debut in 2011 as a member of the music group KB International.

Davido rose to fame in 2011 with the release of “Dami Duro”, the second single from his debut studio album Omo Baba Olowo (2012). The album also contains six additional singles: “Back When”, “Ekuro”, “Overseas”, “All of You”, “Gbon Gbon”, and “Feel Alright”. In 2012, Davido won The Headies Award for Next Rated. Between 2013 and 2015, he released the hit singles “Gobe”, “One of a Kind”, “Skelewu”, “Aye”, “Tchelete (Goodlife)” featuring Mafikizolo, “Naughty” featuring DJ Arafat, “Owo Ni Koko”, “The Sound” and “The Money” featuring Olamide.

In January 2016, Davido announced on Twitter that he signed a record deal with Sony Music. His announcement was met with mixed reactions. The record label put out a press release to confirm the deal.  Few months after signing with Sony, Davido founded the Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) record label.  Dremo and Mayorkun are currently signed to the label. In July 2016, Davido signed a record deal with Sony’s RCA Records. He released the 5-track EP Son of Mercy in October 2016, supported by the singles “Gbagbe Oshi”, “How Long” and “Coolest Kid in Africa”. The EP features guest appearances from Simi, Tinashe and Nasty C.  Davido revealed to Pulse Nigeria in April 2017 that he renegotiated his contract with Sony due to creative control issues.  He released five singles in 2017 after restructuring his contract, including “If” and “Fall”.  The former generated worldwide social media activity, while the latter became the longest-charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history

In a football context, image rights are simply the right a player possesses to control, sell, license and otherwise monetize his or her likeness that is, his or her image, name, nickname, photograph, voice, signature, autograph, and all other characteristics unique to the player.

Image rights deals enable the player to exploit that likeness for commercial value through sponsorship and endorsement activities. Top players, who have an image with a commercial value, will often set up an image rights company to control the use made of their image.

As such, clubs are entering into a multitude of commercial partnerships whereby brands want to be associated with clubs and their high-profile players.

Clubs have traditionally paid their players solely for playing football. This relationship has evolved. As commercial drivers push football into the entertainment and brand space, clubs are looking for a variety of ways to ‘monetize’ and grow their revenue base.

The playing contract gives the club basic use of the player’s image. However, the club will pay the image rights company an additional fee for an enhanced use of the player’s image as well as paying that player a salary for example, if the club is to pay a player £10 million per annual they may do so by paying £8m in salary for their playing services and a £2m payment to the image rights company for an enhanced use of the player’s image. The amounts can vary depending on the value of the image of the player.

However, there is actually no direct legal right that protects a player’s image.

Manchester United have made an initial approach to sign the Frenchman who they’ve been following since his youth days with Paris Saint- Germain

Manchester United made an offer in excess of €40 million (£35m/$45m) for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

The 22 year old French striker, who is being followed by several Premier League clubs, has enjoyed a productive first season with the Ligue 1 side, scoring 23 goals in all competitions since his move from Celtic.

That has prompted Manchester United to make an initial offer worth around €40m as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to improve his attack following a disappointing 2018-19 campaign.

Moussa Dembele is contracted to Lyon until 2021 meaning the Ligue 1 side, who secured Champions League football for next season with their 4-0 win over Caen last time out, are in a strong position in negotiations.

 

It remains to be seen how attracted Dembele is to a move to Old Trafford, however, with Solskjaer’s side having to settle for a place in the Europa League after finishing sixth in the Premier League table.

 

Dembele has an impressive record for France at Under-21 level although is yet to earn a senior call-up.

Chelsea team celebrating Victor Moses for his outstanding performance and  helping Chelsea to keep their outside chances of chasing down Tottenham Hotspur for a place in next season’s Champions League alive as a much-changed side secured a 2-1 win at Burnley.

At the other end of the table, Southampton crept closer to relegation as a 0-0 draw at Leicester leaves the Saints still four points off safety with just four games remaining to save themselves.

Chelsea closed to within five points of fourth-placed Spurs, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men also have a kinder run-in than their London rivals.

Southampton and Chelsea meet for the second time in eight days in a FA Cup semi-final on Sunday after Antonio Conte’s side came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at St. Mary’s on Saturday.

And with the Cup representing Chelsea’s last chance at silverware this season, Conte left Eden Hazard and Willian on the bench as Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata started together up front for the first time.

Burnley’s opening day 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge was an early indicator as to how the season would develop for both sides with Sean Dyche’s side now dreaming of qualifying for European competition for the first time since 1967.

However, Burnley’s hopes of leapfrogging Arsenal into sixth were dealt a blow by a first defeat in seven games.

Conte has lamented Chelsea’s inability to take their chances all season, and it was another night to forget for club record signing Morata as he passed up a host of opportunities to score just his third goal of 2018.

The Spanish international’s first clear opening was well saved by England World Cup hopeful Nick Pope low to his right.

Pope, though, could arguably have done better when the opening goal arrived on 20 minutes as he punched Victor Moses’s cross into the onrushing Kevin Long and the ball ricocheted off the defender into his own net.

Much worse was to come for Morata on the hour mark when he burst clear on goal, but, with just Pope to beat, side-footed wide of the target.

That miss looked like it could be the turning point in the game when four minutes later Burnley levelled in fortuitous fashion.

Joey Gudmundsson’s long-range effort was heading well wide until it deflected off Ashley Barnes to completely wrong-foot Chelsea ‘keeper Thibaut Courtois.

Just minutes later, though, Chelsea retook the lead when Moses fired in low at Pope’s near post from Emerson Palmieri’s cross.

Morata then stormed off the field in disgust at himself as he was replaced by Hazard for the final 20 minutes.

But despite some delightful touches by the Belgian, Chelsea had to settle for victory by the finest of margins.

At the King Power, Leicester manager Claude Puel took his revenge after Southampton sacked the Frenchman despite finishing eighth and reaching the League Cup final last season by pushing his former employers closer to the drop.

In a game of few clear-cut chances, Shane Long had Southampton’s best effort as he was denied by a point-blank save by Leicester’s reserve goalkeeper Ben Hamer.

At the other end, Alex McCarthy also made a smart stop from Jamie Vardy as Southampton at least stopped a run of four straight league defeats.
