Davido or Wizkid, who is the richest between them? Many people both nation wide and internationally must have questioned their selves and still they get different answers which brings argument between people. As you know already they are both top artistes (Davido and Wizkid) and also versatile in different styles.
They have contributed so much to the music industry and that’s the basic reason why Nigeria remains relevant Globally to the music scene.
Wizkid who is arguably the most famous artiste in Nigeria just recently worked with American artiste Chris Brown while Davido also a famous artiste in this country (Nigeria) recently collaborated with another foreign artiste Meek Mill: so one can say that both Wizkid and Davido are well known both locally and internationally.
Another question which could arise is who is better between the two or would you prefer as a huge fan. There are many further questions which could arise between the two but these questions are inevitable because they are the hottest musicians presently in the country.
Wizkid who is still a young lad is already the chief executive officer of StarBoy Music record label. He became famous in 2010 thanks to OJB Jeezrel and ever since then he has maintained that high standard. Most fans just see him as a top artiste but he is more than that, in fact he is a business man.
Wizkid has lots of investments to his name. In recent months, he signed a deal with MTN which is in the region of #40 million and it didn’t end there, he also signed a deal with another network precisely GLO in the excess of #100 million.
Presently Wizkid is currently a Guinness ambassador and also collaborated in a deal with Pepsi and its reported to be in the excess of #100 million.
Having a look at his biography, his birth names are Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun and was born on the 16th of July 1990. He started music at the age of 11 when he released a song with his church friends. In 2009, he signed a record deal with Banky W record label which was called the Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E).
Later on he advanced by releasing his first song in 2010 which was called Holla at your Boy and ever since then he never looked back and continued to go far in the music industry. In 2016 he became known on the international level after having to work with American artiste Drake.
Wizkid as at 2018 currently has an impressive net worth of $12 million (#4.3 billion) which would make him one of the top richest musicians in Nigeria. Precisely his name should be in the top ten richest artistes in Nigeria.
Not many artistes are up to the standard of Wizkid both locally and internationally which would make him proud considering he started from the scratch.
Davido also known as David Adedeji Adeleke was born November 21 in the year 1992. He is a top Nigerian artiste who took music seriously in the year 2011. He was formerly in a group called KB international in America. It didn’t seem to work out and he decided to move back to his country, Nigeria.
Then he found himself around people who were musically inclined. According to him, he loved music and had passion for it. He also said the basic reason for devoting himself into music was that he loved doing it and why not make income from it at the same time.
Davido a top Nigerian artiste became famous when he released his first song Dami Duro in 2011 and ever since then he has worked hard to maintain that high level and even got better as he advanced in age. He’s currently an MTN ambassador and the deal is in the excess of #40 million. He jointly owns HKN music along with his elder brother: Adewale Adeleke.
Davido songs Aye and Gobe are currently having millions of views on YouTube respectively. The former has about 15 million views while the latter is in the region of 11 million views on YouTube. Davido is also a multiple award winning artiste and has worked with artistes like Meek Mill, Akon and Diamond Platnumz.
As a famous artiste, he makes income from shows or events, endorsements and local and international tours. He also makes money by charging #2 million to #5 million per show for bookings and charges about #30 thousand to #250 thousand per show for concerts and organized events.
Most music fans should know that Davido is from a wealthy family but a person like him should be totally proud of himself because of what he has achieved as an individual by carving out a path and a name for himself. Also, he has done a lot which has taken him to create his own fortune.
Davido as at 2018 currently has an amazing net worth which stands at $14 million (#5 billion) and no one could argue the fact that he is not currently among the top ten richest musicians in Nigeria. Why most people get confused over the net worth between Davido and Wizkid is that different top sites which are well known world wide updates different worth.
As at February 14, 2018 Forbes rated Wizkid over Davido and most fans feel there could be an error because most sites shows that Davido net worth is higher than Wizkid net worth. Like Forbes, they used a list using factors such as popularity, sales, awards, You Tube views, endorsements and the number of appearances in newspapers, social media influence and others.
To add to that, Nigerians think there could be something in the ratings of Forbes considering the fact that Davido boldly outshines Wizkid in some of the listed factors. Apart from the fact that Davido was born in a wealthy family, he clearly shows his status of his account something Wizkid doesn’t do.
Many have suggested the notion that Davido is more richer than Wizkid or could the notion be wrong or probably Forbes might be wrong here.
