Over the years, the issue of who leads the way between OBO and Starboy in terms of personal wealth has been a heavily debated subject, as none could come up with concrete proof as to which of the guys ranked more in wealth.
However, with the Nigerian music industry taking an upward swing ever since the turn of the millennia, with artiste raking in millions from shows and endorsement deals, that puzzle seems to have been broken. Now, the net worth of the two heavyweights have been spelled out in the open and who leads the way in terms of wealth is very apparent.
Many believe Wizkid to be the richer one. The reason for that conviction is because Wizkid started his music career at the age of 11 and had garnered a list of sponsors and investors and became the brand ambassador for one or two blue-chip companies. But by the end of 2017, his net worth was estimated to be $12m (N4.3bn) according to TUKO News.
Davido, on the other hand, did not start as young as Wizkid. However, he quickly garnered enough wealth to shove the international Starboy behind him, with an estimated net worth of $16m (N5.7bn) due to incomes from his Tour, Concerts, and Endorsement deals. He also runs two labels, co-owning HKN and his personal DMW. That’s just it!!
