On Thursday (Sept. 10), Nigerian singer Davido released his first solo single of the year. The song titled Fem– meaning hush, seemingly addresses his naysayers and detractors. It’s also a rumored diss to fellow Nigerian singer Burna Boy.
“To the people talking about you because they don’t understand your shine, they don’t understand your grace,” Davido wrote on Instagram, “they don’t understand why they can never be what you are or have what you have… we say #FEM… Heard y’all missed me.”
The track will also appear on his upcoming album A Better Time.

With From King To A GOD, I wanted to show growth; how much I’ve grown as an artist and how much I’ve grown as a man,” Conway said in a statement. “I wanted to showcase versatility and show people that I’m not a one trick pony.
