Davido and Wizkid who is the richest?, If you’re looking for an objective comparison of the two, you’ll have to go to the internet.
Davido and Wizkid who is the richest?
Davido and Wizkid are often thought of as Nigerian musicians, but they are not native to their country. Davido is from Lagos while Wizkid is from Port Harcourt in Rivers State.
Their success has largely been due to their international appeal and a social media based marketing driven by stars like them.
While Davido may be the better known, there’s no denying that Wizkid is a much more talented musician with a deeper understanding of music and its marketability. The two are also considered to be very close friends who perform together as a group at various events.
The pair have had many collaborations with each other including 2013’s “Ogba Mba” which was co-written by both artists, it was then later remixed by Wizkid . Most recently, Davido collaborated with Wizkid on his single “Cha Cha” which was released on May 17th this year.
As for the awards; in 2014 Davido won for Best Music Video for his collaboration with Phyno called “I Do Love You More Than I Love This World” and this year he won for Best R&B Song for “Cha Cha” . He also took home Igbo Idol trophies in 2016 and 2017 .
On the other hand, Wizkid won Igbo Idol in 2015 and 2016 ,2017 ,2018 ,2019 receiving 2 awards back-to-back while 2 other artists (Lil Dot and Hardwell) were shortlisted but never went home during that period .
Why are Davido and Wizkid so successful?
Davido and Wizkid are Nigerians and they have become successful musicians in their own right. From the beginning of their career, both have been willing to take risks to achieve what they believe is a better future for themselves and the Nigerian music industry. They have faced considerable obstacles along the way, but they refused to give up and continue to forge ahead in their careers with no regrets.
Their musical abilities
Davido and Wizkid are two of the biggest stars on the African continent. They have been at the top of their game for some time now, and with the success of their music videos, it isn’t surprising that many people have started to take notice.
While Davido has arguably been a bigger star than Wizkid in the past, he is now expanding his fan base to not just Nigeria but other parts of Africa. So how can we assess who is more successful?
Davido began his music career in 2008 and was a part of the “Kenya Boys” group with Tonto Dikeh and Rufus Benson. He released his first single “Oluwo Iyobu” in 2010, which was part of an effort by him to make it big in Nigeria. The song went on to win several awards including a Cool FM Awards and an MTV Award for Best Video category.
Wizkid has been at the top since he released his debut single “One More Chance” in 2007. His first song was called “The Turn Off” and it was produced by C3 Music Productionz.
The song peaked at number one on the Nigerian charts, stayed there for three weeks straight and won numerous awards including an Oris Nigeria Music Award for Best Newcomer that same year as well as being nominated for a BET award for Most Valuable Artiste at that year’s ceremony but lost out to Drake (who also performed at that ceremony), co-hosted by Michael Jackson himself.
These two stars are willing to do anything it takes to be successful like any other singer would do, including working under very low pay rates. This is normal given that they create music which is meant specifically for fans based on their personal taste without any commercial motives behind them (as far as we know).
However they are usually paid very low amounts compared to what similar artists would be paid if they were doing the same job except under much higher rates which we cannot verify whether or not they actually receive these kinds of low pay rates because most people don’t know about it or wouldn’t believe it anyway unless told so (which is why most people don’t even know about them).
They also work very hard because social media has become their main source of income: whenever there is any issue with either one or both of them, whatever happens online has always been known about before it happens or after
If Davido and Wizkid—both of whom come from Nigeria—are considered the kings of the African music industry, they’re certainly not the only ones. There are hundreds of other young artists across Africa who have been musically credited for their contributions to the continent’s music.
The answer is because we asked a few questions about them.
The first question we asked was about Davido, who is known for being one of the highest-paid musicians on earth.
What do you think Davido earns per year?
We’ll let you decide whether his income is more than most people’s yearly paycheck . . .
It’s a tough question for sure, but with a little help from Wikipedia (the best resource out there), we were able to figure out that it shouldn’t be too difficult a task to calculate an estimate for Davido’s yearly salary.
The following chart gives a rough estimate:
It seems like an easy enough task — so let us take it one step further and ask some questions about Wizkid.
What do you think Wizkid earns per year?
It turns out that it would be much easier to calculate than Daveo — but still not as simple as most people might imagine based on his annual wage alone:
It seems like even if Wizkid takes care of the research work necessary to find an accurate number, it will still be tough to figure out an exact answer.
But here is another example of how easy it can be:
In both cases, we rely on Wikipedia for information about each artist in order to get our estimates; however, Wikipedia has no idea how much each artist makes until they are actually paid. That means if one artist tries to make more than his or her colleague by using creative accounting methods, their answer may ultimately differ from that estimated by Wikipedia without knowing how much money each was actually paid . . .
An interesting comparison of the two is that Davido has been credited with more sales than Wizkid on his debut. This is no slight to Wizkid. Both are phenomenal musicians and have taken their respective music to exciting new places.
Davido has been praised for his ability to create a global sound in his music, a rarity for an African artist (although this is not a criticism). However, it is interesting to note that since Davido’s debut, there have only been a handful of artists from the continent who have managed to achieve success as mainstream artists; in contrast, Wizkid has managed to build up a fan base outside of Nigeria and Afrobeat circles.
Davido’s independent musical career is also unique: he refuses to collaborate with other artists and focuses on producing work by himself. His success as an artist in Africa may be attributed to the fact that he capitalizes on his own popularity by innovating while remaining true to himself.
He is one of the few African artists who utilizes social media platforms effectively; in addition, he was able to produce Top 15 singles without ever releasing an album or single via traditional means (a la Pharrell Williams).
Wizkid also has a huge fan base outside of Africa, but it seems that this fanbase consists of primarily Nigerians rather than Africans scattered far and wide throughout the world (a difference which may go some way towards explaining why he hasn’t achieved any notable success outside of Africa).
His potential for success outside of Africa may be due in part to his ability to blend Afrobeat music with hip hop elements which have become popular internationally; similar trends occurred during the rise of non-Afrobeat hip hop into mainstream popularity in North America during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Davido Vs Wizkid Part II
Davido and Wizkid are two Nigerian musicians who have proven themselves as the best at what they do, especially since they have been in the music industry for quite some time now.
Wizkid has won several awards, including a gong for Best Male Vocalist at the Africa Music Awards. Davido has a long list of awards to his name, including a BET Award for Best Hip-Hop Artist and Best African Act at the 2016 BET Awards, an Ivor Novello Award for Best Song for “Kola” and multiple other accolades.
But there is one thing that these two musicians are not too sure about. Which is exactly how rich they are?
The question is as important as it is simple.
How much money does Wizkid and Davido earn from their music? And
how much do they actually make from it?

Davido And Wizkid: Biggest Musicians On The African Continent
Davido, aka David Akintola (born February 11, 1992 in Lagos), better known as Davido, is a Nigerian musician. He is currently signed to the label J Records.
Wizkid, aka Wizkid, born February 8, 1994 in Lagos and better known by his stage name Wizkid (pronounced “Kizzie”) is a Nigerian musician. He is currently signed to the label Sony Music Entertainment Nigeria Limited.
The two artists are of Nigerian descent and both have an interest in music for different reasons.
But they are also both determined to succeed at their respective endeavours. In fact, they have been compared to each other in terms of their musical abilities and success levels. And while each artist has been busy making music together on his own debut album Feel Good , they are also on their way to creating a new wave of super stars on the continent that could be equally as successful as their predecessors…

How They Got To Where They Are Today
Davido and Wizkid have joined the ranks of the elite musicians who make millions on a single song, with their respective hit singles “I’m The Best” and “Papele.”
But in many ways, their success is not a new thing. Davido is one of the oldest artists to release a single and win popularity as an artist because he has been doing it since his debut back in 2008.
Wizkid is one of the youngest winners of the prestigious Ghana Music Awards (GMA) for best music videos and album categories. His first GMA award was won when he was just 14-years old.
The Next Big Thing
Davido, Wizkid, and the rest of their entourage are the next big thing. They are the African faces of international fame. Their ranks are so immense that they have been responsible for everything from international sales to inspiring cultural change.
Who is Davido?
Davido (born David Alabi) is a Nigerian musician and producer best known for his hit single “Deedi” (The One), which has become one of Nigeria’s most popular songs in the last few years. He has also released several albums and singles on his own label RGF Records and signed a record deal with Sony Music Entertainment after releasing his debut album “Wizkid” in 2012.
Who is wizkid?
Wizkid (born Michael Adebayo Ogunbowale) is an American rapper, singer-songwriter, actor, and entrepreneur from Los Angeles who is best known as a member of the hip hop group The Weeknd’s R&B/hip hop project Starboy along with American rapper Kendrick Lamar and Canadian singer Suaheli. His debut album “My Dear Melodrama” was released in 2016 to excellent reviews.
As we’ve seen in our previous analysis of the Nigerian music industry, the two are undoubtably the two biggest musicians on the African continent right now.
However, that doesn’t mean that Davido and Wizkid are unbeatable. In fact, their dominance is so complete that they are virtually impossible to beat.
The reasons for this are simple: they have so much money to spend on marketing, promotion and talent that they can do whatever they want — meaning any competition is essentially futile unless it’s directly about them.
It’s also important to note that Davido is a popular musician on his own merit; he has a massive following of fans all over Africa and beyond.
Wizkid, on the other hand, has a huge international following — his videos have been viewed millions of times — but he really hasn’t had his own dedicated fan base until recently.
In fact, people aren’t even sure how many followers he has, since most music fans don’t actually follow anyone other than their favourite artists or those who have become popular in Nigeria or overseas.
