Davido, who executive-produced A Better Time, spoke about the project during an interview with Complex several weeks ago. He explained he had no intention to record an album in 2020, as he was originally scheduled to be on tour; however, the global health crisis squashed that plan, and Davido found himself under lockdown at home with plenty of time to create.
Rashid Abdul Mugeez developed a love of rap while attending school which led to him and his cousin forming R2Bees in 2007, and quickly became a favorite in Ghana, releasing their debut album, Da Revolution, in 2009. A follow-up, Da Revolution II, came in 2012, before the pair were nominated for Best International Act at the 2013 BET Awards. Various R2Bees singles appeared over the next few years while Mugeez also struck out on his own, guesting on singles by the likes of Criss Waddle, Mr. Eazi, and DJ Breezy. 2017 saw him guesting on Fuse ODG‘s single “Boa Me,” alongside Ed Sheeran. The two cousins lived in the same house and also attended the same primary, junior and senior secondary schools in Tema. Beginning their career early, they started off representing their school in school music contests. This led them to participating in the popular radio competition Kasahare, which they won. Continued performance gained them popularity within their community.
The 27-year-old Afrobeats star demonstrated this in his third studio album appropriately titled A Better Time. The 17-track project—the follow-up to 2019’s A Good Time—includes the Napji-produced protest anthem “Fem” as well as guest appearances by U.S. and African artists. We’re talking heavy-hitters like Lil Baby, Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, Nas, Tiwa Savage, Bella Shmurda, Sho Madjozi, and more.
