Kwam 1 faces heavy backlash for ‘copying’ Davido’s album title ‘Timeless’



Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, better known online as Kwam 1, is a Nigerian Fuji master who recently became popular after revealing the name of his forthcoming new album: “Timeless.”

The Afrobeat artist Davido’s album title has been claimed to be copied by K1 de Ultimate in an effort to promote his forthcoming 10-track studio album.

Many people do not realize that Kwam 1 has been teasing the album’s title since 2022.

Recall that on March 31, 2023, Davido published his first music in seven months with the release of his new album, “Timeless.”

Not only was Kwam 1’s announcement criticized for having the same name as Davido’s record, but it was also criticized because the title featured the broken chains of Nigeria’s incoming president, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Timeless album: Davido reveals the mastermind behind his album name

David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has revealed how he came up with the name ‘Timeless’ for his latest album.

According to him, the title of his fourth studio album was suggested by ace music producer Michael “Don Jazzy” Ajereh.

He explained that Jazzy entered his DM about a year ago and made the recommendation, which he followed.

The DMW boss made the revelation while answering questions about his latest music project in an interview.

Davido said he almost chose a different album name but eventually settled for ‘Timeless’, as suggested by the Mavin boss. Davido said:

“Funny enough, Jazzy actually DMed me like a year ago and suggested that I named my album Timeless. In the end I changed it like two months ago and changed it back.”

Recall that Davido finally dropped his much-anticipated ‘Timeless’, album on March 31, after a 5-month hiatus following the death of his son, Ifeanyi Adeleke jnr.

The 17-track album features guest appearances from Grammy award-winning Beninese singer, Angelique Kidjo, British rapper, Skepta, Asake, Fave, Cavemen, and DMW’s latest signees; Morravey and Logos Olori.
