DO YOU AGREE? “Burna Boy And Wizkid Use Songwriters Too” – Davido’s Signee, Logos Olori

Nigerian singer Logos Olori has revealed that top Nigerian artists, Burna Boy and Wizkid, also use songwriters for their music.

This disclosure comes in the wake of Davido facing criticism for employing songwriters. As a DMW signee, Logos Olori aimed to defend his boss and normalize this common practice in the music industry. During an interview with City 105.1 FM, Olori explained that the music industry is a business, and as an artist’s popularity increases, their time to write songs diminishes.

In his words:-

“Most people that shame artists for using songwriters don’t know much about the music business. As a musician you tend to write your songs most times when you are up-and-coming. When you’ve 10 shows in a week in different countries, you’ll understand that you need a songwriter.

“Chris Brown has a songwriter, Michael Jackson had a songwriter. Davido is currently on tour immediately after his wedding. He writes his songs sometimes but most times he has to do the business part of it. That’s how Burna Boy is, that’s how most artists are even Wizkid but they don’t just put it out there but if you go to Spotify to check for the credits of their songs, you will see that they use songwriters as well,” He added.

Also, Logos Olori explained that up-and-coming artists often write their own songs, but once they reach a certain level of success, they need assistance to balance their workload.

However, by mentioning Burna Boy and Wizkid, Logos Olori has highlighted that using songwriters is a common practice among top artists, and it’s not unique to Davido.
