Davido left everyone in a total state of shock when left social media and unfollowed everyone on his Instagram page.
We all thought it was going to be a nine-day wonder but we stood back and watch him gone for three months. Before he left, he said he was going to do a self-detox and cleansing by being selfish for the first time.
In an interview with Tunde Enut, Davido has delved into what actually made him take the step of going away for all that while.
Davido says that he had gotten to a phase that the break was imperative and had he ignore it, he probably would have broken down forever.
“There was a lot going on. I was on tour. I was on the road for nine years and it took a toll on me for like a month and I thought that I need a break. Even I was telling myself that it was just going to take a week. But I thought that if I don’t slow down now, it may end in me breaking down because I’m a very strong person. If I break down, imagine how many people that I’m taking care of will break down as well.”
He added that he was not even tempted to come back on social media to look at what is going on.
“I have never been at home for that long before. And I thought that if I have to do this, I have to get off social media. So, just stepping back really helped me a lot,”
