Duncan Mighty, who has been a singular voice to the Niger Delta progress cause is overwhelmed by the show of love and support from a globally recognized artist, Davido. For lending his voice to Duncan Mighty who is currently the most recognized vocal entertainer from the region to promote the culture of the people.
Duncan Mighty who maintained his residence in Port Harcourt when others at his pedigree left to Lagos for brighter opportunities and has passionately invested his time, voice and talent to promoting and developing the region, the people and their culture and traditions, has made a giant step by attracting Davido to join his cause. Bringing him a step closer to achieving his dream of opening the region for new Business Opportunities and investors.
While spectators are still skeptical about why Duncan Mighty seemed to have prostrated for Davido during his visit to Port Harcourt. After Duncan Mighty shared the video of him bowing to Davido on his Instagram page, the 34-year-old was criticized for belittling himself before a 25-year-old singer, who met him in the music business.
However, explaining why Duncan Mighty seemingly prostrated himself for Davido, his manager, Michael Gabriel, said it was out of sheer happiness, as the singer was overwhelmed and beside himself with joy.
He stated, “Duncan was just happy to have Davido in the Niger Delta; it was the first time he would visit for a video shoot and it was one of a kind”
How many top artistes come to Port Harcourt? Everyone goes to Dubai, South Africa and other places to shoot videos. It is a big deal for an internationally recognized artiste like Davido to come to Port Harcourt and for Duncan Mighty to collaborate with him as well. He didn’t intend to bow, he was just overly excited.
But of course, people misinterpreted his gesture and insinuated that he was belittling himself to Davido. Sometimes, there is no need to react to things like this because you will only give people more reasons to talk. When I mentioned it to him, he waved it off and was more focused on more progressive things and wanted to know the next thing on the agenda.”
Gabriel said they didn’t care about the criticism Duncan Mighty had got for his recent gesture to Davido, saying it was a blessing in disguise.
He further added that, “Criticism drives traffic to a brand and it has helped us. We have been in the news for the past two months; so, people can continue to talk while we continue to trend. There is no week Duncan doesn’t have more than 1,000 new followers on Instagram. If you do something, people must talk. Pastor Enoch Adeboye suffers criticism despite being a man of God. Former President Goodluck Jonathan did his best, yet he was criticised.”
According to Gabriel, Duncan Mighty has become so busy that he also now struggles to see him, even as his manager. He said, “Duncan’s schedule is tight, as he is everywhere now. I receive calls from almost every part of the world from people who want to do one thing or the other with him and they are ready to pay whatever amount. I last saw Duncan three weeks ago before I did again on Thursday. After the video shoot in Port Harcourt, he followed Davido in his private jet to Lagos almost immediately.”
