Davido is a Nigerian-American singer, songwriter, and record producer who has earned a net worth of $100 million, making him Nigeria’s second richest artist and the country’s second-richest musician overall.
His principal source of cash comes from the digital sales of his successful songs and albums, as well as through sold-out performances, YouTube music videos, and endorsement deals with major businesses.
While simultaneously producing millions of dollars from his music videos, he is the only Nigerian musician to have achieved more than 750 million views on YouTube, making him the most popular singer in the country.
Other sources of income for him include sponsorship agreements with firms such as MTN, Guinness Nigeria, and Infinix mobile.
In a now-deleted social media post from December 2021, he and his management claimed that the musician had made more than $20 million dollars.
David Adeleke, known professionally as Davido, made his international breakthrough in October 2011 with the release of his smash single “Dami Duro,” produced by Shizzi.
When Dami Duro’s music video was launched in January 2012, it soon became the buzz of the town, gaining extensive transmission across Nigeria and becoming the discussion of the internet.
Dami Duro’s debut studio album, Omo Baba Olowo (Child of a Wealthy Person), was released on July 17th, 2012 by the HKN Music Record Label.
Dami Duro was in charge of the recording and the label HKN Music handled the distribution.
Since then, he has released a series of singles that have gained him fame, money, and international recognition.
His debut album contained a slew of chart-topping tracks, which helped to propel him to stardom.
Davido executive produced OBO, which he co-wrote with a number of other producers, including Jay Sleek, Spellz, Maleek Berry, and others.
There were numerous well-known performers on the show, including Sina Rambo, Ice Prince and Kay Switch.
Davido followed up his 2019 release of “A Good Time” with “A Better Time” in 2020, his third studio album.
To far, the album has been listened to more than 200 million times since its release on digital platforms last year.
Aside from the money he makes through his music and record sales, Davido’s net worth has grown dramatically over the years as a consequence of sponsorship deals totaling billions of dollars.
According to reports, Davido inked a N30 million music agreement with MTN Nigeria on April 6, 2012.
On October 24, Davido also established a collaboration with the Guinness Brewery in Nigeria.
On May 9, 2018, Davido struck another Endorsement deal with Infinix Mobile, a Hong Kong-based smartphone maker.
