Luddy Dave music journey started when he was still a child growing up on the streets of the ancient city of warriors, Ibadan. At the age of nine, LuddyDave joined the choir of my local church and grew to become its lead singer. The experience helped to hone Luddy Dave‘s music talent and led him on a quest for more.
As a member of the choir, he wrote soul touching songs based on events around him. He drew inspiration from established acts like Plantashun Boys, Styl Plus, R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige and several other great musicians. This experience made LuddyDave realize that he could pursue music as a career and also shaped him as a person.
With a determination to make music his purpose in life, Luddy Dave left Nigeria for South Africa. Adapting to life in a new country was far from easy, but he found refuge still in music. Luddy Dave quickly set about my passion, and in no time, he started gaining people’s attention. He soon became a local favourite and was rewarded with several invitational performances in clubs across Pretoria, Johannesburg and Soweto. This was in addition to regular gigs at the Royal Hotel in Johannesburg.
After several years of playing music in South Africa, Luddy Dave realized that you cannot give away, without giving home first. This informed my decision to return to Nigeria and sign with a new record label and 4am management company to help actualize my dream.
Fans can expect thrilling, consistent and evergreen Afrohybrid vibes in his music.
