Wizkid vs Davido who is the richest 2019 in the music industry – So long as music is the subject matter, Nigeria is endowed with a multitude of creative minds that brim with intense passions towards music. Verily, Nigeria has a huge number of musicians –both the renowned and the hidden ones, but in many cases, music enthusiasts discuss the famous ones, particularly as they are recognized within and beyond the borders of the country.
On any grounds, Nigerians show great commitment towards making money and as regards this, the influx of young Nigerians into the music arena outlines the fact that music is a great source of wealth. And fortunately, Nigerian music now dominates Africa through the influence of many Nigerian artistes whose songs have been massively acclaimed across and beyond the continent.
Among these artists, great names such as D’Banj, Davido, P Square, Wizkid, etc. easily fill the mind. Meanwhile, these artistes are not only regarded for their immense musical contributions, but also their massive wealth which gives many other passionate Nigerians the cause to find their rhythm within the music industry.
Recently, lots of music enthusiasts have engaged in heated arguments over the matter “Who is Richer between Davido and Wizkid?’’. Meanwhile, this controversial issue has left many Nigerians going gaga. But first and foremost, it is quite interesting to ask the question “Why are they comparing these two artistes?’’
WIZKID VS DAVIDO WHO IS THE RICHEST 2019 IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY
Without any doubts, Wizkid and Davido are of great reputation and other than that, they have each garnered huge wealth for themselves. And obviously, the reason many music enthusiasts try to compare them with each other is that both of them came into limelight apparently close to the same period and since then, they have continued making great waves with their hit singles. Owing to this, their songs have reached high sales within and beyond Nigeria.
Likewise, Wizkid and Davido are part of MTN’s mega-deal which marks one of Nigeria’s multimillion endorsements. Over and above that, each of them is an ambassador of one or more expensive brands (And certainly, everyone understands how this will yield the artistes some millions of Naira).
With regard to awards and nominations, both Davido and Wizkid have done great and bagged honourable awards both locally and internationally. A good instance is The Headies Awards which both of them have obviously bagged.
Again, we can argue that both of them are on a par with each other in the aspect of international recognition. As regards this, Davido has magnified his reputation by doing music with Meek Mill, Akon and the likes. Meanwhile, Wizkid has also partnered with Chris Brown, Drake to mention a few, just in order to widen his coast. Undeniably, Meek Mill and Chris Brown are acclaimed international singers and for any artist to have collaborated with either of them, that artiste definitely boasts of an incredible reputation.
Arguments over Wizkid vs Davido have become so intense that music enthusiasts ask questions such as “Who has the greater net worth? Who has more assets? Who has signed more endorsements and more awards?”
Since both of them constitute the most vibrant Nigerian musicians, issues about them are definitely subject to controversy and in that case, we have decided to familiarize you with some facts about them
Wizkid Vs Davido
Taking a review of Wizkid’s music career, his achievements and how he managed to rise into prominence; Wizkid undoubtedly boasts of his self-made wealth and regarding his family background, he had to strive hard to make music a successful endeavour. Since he became a famous musician apparently in early 2011, he has continually maintained his notable position within the music industry. Likewise, he has been enriched with several endorsement deals from the stables of Nigeria’s leading brands such as Globacom and MTN Nigeria. For Globacom, Wizkid reportedly signed an endorsement deal estimated at N100 million. And in the second place, his deal with MTN, is declared to be worth N40 million. Like several other Nigerian artistes, he also has endorsement deals with the pair of Pepsi and Guinness and in this case, he performs ambassadorial roles for each of the brands (Pepsi and Guinness).
Besides his presence on the music scene, Wizkid partially occupies himself with several investments to boost his wealth. And to further strengthen his name in the Nigerian music industry, he already has his own record label which is widely known as Starboy Entertainment.

Right now, let’s take the subject matter straight to the great counterpart –Davido. As many Nigerians would surely agree, Davido is a self-acclaimed musician who proclaims that his wealth is self-made. Though he emerged from the home of Mr. Adeleke –his wealthy father and business tycoon –the young musician often claims his musical works and contributions are the main factors behind his massive wealth.
Like his counterpart, Davido has remained a vibrant musician since he came into limelight with his remarkable 2011 release –“Dami Duro’’. Likewise, he also has an endorsement deal with the renowned MTN –a mega telecom company. Based on reports, his deal with the telecom giant is estimated in excess of N40 million.
As he goes by the stage name “Davido’’, the star musician is greatly inclined to the acronym “OBO (Omo Baba Olowo)’’ which clearly translates into “The Son of a Wealthy Man’’. With respect to this, OBO boasts of his silver spoon but despite being a child from a wealthy background, he maintains that his wealth is self-made.
Alongside Adewale Adeleke (his elder brother) Davido is the c0-owner of HKN Music –a famous record label.
With a view to magnifying his name and promoting musical collaborations, Davido has done music with other great artistes inclusive of Meek Mill, Akon and Diamond Platnumz. To exemplify his musical relationships with reputable international artistes, Davido worked with Akon in course of the remix of “Dami Duro’’.
With regard to his wealth, Davido has gathered massive wealth which largely stems from his local and international concerts, the expensive amounts he charges per show, his mega endorsement deals and his high-selling songs. He recently launched his clothing line “IF” with Orange couture UK, the first of it kind for an african artist.
Currently, Davido’s net worth is valued at $14 million and this massive worth is reportedly exclusive of his father’s money or any inheritance from the Adeleke’s.
