My Beef With Davido – Cynthia Morgan
The Dancehall singer who recently called out Davido on Snapchat was asked to explain why she took those jabs in a new interview with Sunday Spice…Cynthia said:
I had a beautiful childhood and I was raised by my mother. She played the role of a father to my siblings and I. My mum, Sherifat Morgan, is a top musical/performing gospel artist in Benin City, Edo State and she supported my musical career.
I developed interest in music from childhood. I used to sing in the church choir and I started recording at the age of 16. My debut single, Dotty Stepping, was released when I was 17 and General Pype was featured in it. Jude Okoye appreciated my talent after we met in Atlanta, in 2012, and signed me to his label, Northside INC.
I had to put my education on hold to concentrate on my music career. I hope to become a graduate very soon.
I do not really have a lot to say about the recent Headies award. I respect the organisers of the Headies and I congratulate the winner of the Next Rated category, Reekado Banks.
I am in a relationship with my music so I do not have time for a lover at the moment. My man needs to understand me perfectly and appreciate my personality first as an artiste and as Cynthia Morgan.
I am working on my album and a whole lot of other things. Also, I am working on some projects which include my album, my music, setting up a project for women
I do not want to talk about my spat with Davido or shed more light on it because I do not really know what to say. People who actually care tried to find out what really transpired between us. Davido called me names on Snapchat and I retaliated. When you say something to me, I give it back to you if I do not like it. Unfortunately, people did not hear my own side of the story before they reached their conclusions. I do not really have any problem or beef with Davido. He called me names and I called him names too. He started the whole episode by calling me a Malu, which means cow. I do not tolerate things like that from anybody. I do not know how people came up with the idea that I have a crush on Davido. I cannot remember ever saying that. I like his music artistry but I do not have a crush on him.
Although I did not win a car at the Headies, my new ride is a Range Rover SUV. It is my priced possession and it is God’s blessing to me. I appreciate people who have encouraged me to get to where I am today. I am more concerned with my music and my fans. I do not really care about any other person.
I can’t stand anyone looking down on an individual simply because she is female. I am a feminist and I stand up for anything that concerns the women folk. I may not be a hardcore feminist but I am a female and I believe in empowering the girl child.
I am free to post anything on my social media page because it is mine. Whatever I post depends on my mood and what I would love to share with my fans at a particular time. If anyone feels offended, he or she should unfollow me. Also, I don’t read the negative comments because it doesn’t matter to me. I post what I feel like when I feel like it. And I owe no explanation to anyone for doing so.
I am unique and I do not feel threatened by any female artiste. I believe in my talent and my capabilities. I do not imitate other artistes, rather, I set standards. I don’t see competition but all I have is the will to excel in my craft and on the Nigerian music scene.
My height and my talent are my greatest assets.
