“Everything in this album really just happened with the Grace of God and it was just luck.
I was at on of Hitboy’s studios working and I’m like ‘let me go to the bathroom real quick’.
I use the bathroom and as I come out I’m washing my hands and I look to my right and I just see Nas.
“He was like ‘Are you Davido?’ and I’m like ‘Yeah’.
It was crazy.
“I went back to the studio recording and I look behind me and just see Nas comes in the studio, he’s bumping his head.
” I asked ‘Do you think you can give me a verse?’ and he agreed.
15 minutes later the verse was done.
Two days later we shot the video and it was amazing”.
