Producer, Fresh VDM, the brain behind the production of Davido’s 2017 hit song, ‘FIA’ and a couple of the singer’s other songs, spoke on what it is like working with the OBO, saying it takes patience to work with him.
“Working with Davido has been epic; it requires a lot of hard work and determination.
With someone like Davido who gets beats thrown at him from every angle, you need patience, persistence and diligence”, he said in an exclusive chat with Showtime.”
He spoke on the challenges he has had to grapple with, working with the DMW henchman who has been described as a workaholic.
“With Davido, you have to be on your toes because he will not like every beat you make, not because it’s not dope but because it has to align with the ideas he has in his head.
Also, he can call you at 2am and be like ‘Can you come over? There is this idea I have’, and you have to go to his house,”
The Togolese-born, Nigerian-bred producer made an attempt to correct the misconception that Davido is arrogant, selfish, proud and snobbish.
“David is the sweetest and most caring person I have come to know. He has an amazing heart.
People who don’t know him can hardly see it. He treats everyone as an equal regardless of your social status; he never looks down on you”, he said.
Fresh VDM has gotten thumbs up for good productions from the likes of American Drake and Steflon Don.
His most recent productions include ‘Ada’ by DJ ECool, featuring Davido; ‘DOE’ by Larry Gaaga, and the latest, ‘Mind’ by DMW stars, Davido, Mayorkun, Dremo and Peruzzi.
