In 2016, the rapper was featured in Drake’s song Wanna Know, a song that announced his first entry on the UK Singles Chart.

The UK rapper of Nigerian descent was born on June 5, 1998, in Brixton, South London, becoming the youngest son to Nigerian parents.

After his mother gave him a piano in 2012, Dave started making music at the tender age of 14. In 2015, he made a first professional appearance on BL@CKBOX where he dropped an audio mixtape called Mid Summer Night.

One of his several awards was the MOBO Award for the Best Newcomer Act at the 2017 ceremony on November 29.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the story of former Nigerian Olympian, Iron Bar Etim Bassey, always wrenches the heart whenever it is told.

His career as a promising sportsman ended during the 1984 Olympics when he had a torn muscle while lifting weight.

Before his career decline, he won a gold medal at the National Sports Festival in 1981. He proceeded to win three gold medals in African Weightlifting Competition in Egypt. He also won bronze at the Commonwealth Championship in 1982.

What really dealt the Olympian a big blow was that he had to use his life savings to take care of his injury in America after the government that he represented failed to do so.

Over time, the Nigerian has been giving himself to community service. He said he never allowed what his country did to him stop his passion for selfless service.

Every day, he wakes up as early as 4 am to fix his community road so that people are not held up in traffic that could make them miss work or get home late.
