Daddy Showkey is a year older today and Nigerians are celebrating the music icon.
Born John Odafe Asiemo on August 4, 1970, Daddy Showkey carved a niche for himself from the slums of Ajegunle and became the most famous ‘galala’ artist in Nigeria, paving the way for many others after him.
Galala is a dance style and its origins can be accredited to the Delta-state native. Several modern-day dance steps were culled from the 46-year old’s style.
So put some respek on his name.
Daddy Showkey shared with his followers on Instagram, “Thank God for everything,Baba I thank you o #daddyshowkey #showdonshow #ajegunle #lionclan #asalamamovement”
Daddy Showkey once reportedly had hopes of joining the military so he enrolled at the National Defense Academy though he never attended. Despite this, he is the only Nigeria artist allowed to wear an army uniform.
He was part of the Pretty Busy Boys music group in the nineties, comprising of Daddy Fresh, Cashman Davies, and Sexy Pretty.
Happy Birthday Daddy Showkey. We thank you for your dance step and music which brought joy to many back then, and till now.
