Wizkid Biography

Wizkid vs Davido, who is richer?

Fans of celebrities compare their favorite celebrities with their counterparts. One person that Wizkid is constantly being compared to is Davido. Just like Wizkid, Davido is a popular Musician from Nigeria. Although he made his debut long after Wizkid, Davido has been able to record huge success both locally and international. He also has a lot of money to match his fame. Who is richer, however?

1. Wizkid’s and Davido’s net worth: Is he the richest artist in Nigeria.

According to information gathered by Naijauto, currently in 2020, Davido’s net worth is $20m or ₦7.79 billion and we know from above that the starboy is estimated at $30 million or ₦11.69 billion. The two are always on the list of the top 10 richest musicians in Nigeria and rank 3 and 5 respectively at the moment, December 2020.

2. Is Wizkid richer than Davido?

Does the above mean that Wizkid is richer then? Not so fast, please.

Davido has always been privileged; he’s from a wealthy background – a privilege Wizkid didn’t have. Critics claim that his success is a fruit of his father’s influence – a claim that he constantly refutes. From his early days in music, he has worked tirelessly, releasing hit after hit.

Like Wizkid, Davido is a record label executive who owns HKN music. He has exotic mansions in choice areas home and abroad, owns flashy cars and has many endorsements. A signee of SONY Entertainment, he has also won numerous awards and collaborated with many international Musicians. It’s somewhat difficult to tell who is richer since we can’t totally discount Davido’s family wealth. Are the 30 billion claims true?

For now, though, why don’t we go with Forbes and place Davido at a close second to Wizkid?
