In addition, they’ve each collaborated with several top artistes from around the world, thereby increasing their fame in other continents.

Even on social networks, both of them have been representing Nigeria well. Wizkid was the first Nigerian musician to cross 1m followers on Twitter. Davido, on the other hand, is Nigeria’s most followed singer on all social platforms.

But we’ll not be delving into social media popularity. We’ll focus, instead, on the reason you’re here.

Without further delay, let’s compare…

Davido and Wizkid net worth

Davido has a net worth of ₦9 Billion, which has an equivalence of $25 million. Wizkid, on the other hand, has a net worth of ₦8 Billion ($22 million).

From the figures above Davido is obviously richer than Wizkid, albeit by a tiny fraction.

That being said, we’ll have a look at something very important again.

How do they make their money and what are their assets?

The first and obvious way Davido and Wizkid make their money is through their songs.

Their hit songs, consistency and popularity have in return seen them attract investors, partners and promoters. So, everything is sort of a chain reaction in the music industry.

Wizkid is the owner of Starboy Records, a label he formed after quitting Banky Wellington’s E.M.E records.

Daido also has a record label. He started, Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), few months after signing with Sony. Davido’s record label boasts the signature of talented upcoming artistes, Dremo and Mayorkun.

Basically, their record labels are their glaring investments. However, they do have other investments, assets and luxurious cars and mansions.

Wizkid Properties:

Wizkid is said to own a mansion in Lekki worth roughly ₦70 million and an expensive house in Surulere. Linda Ikeji revealed that he also has a mansion in Los Angeles, California; of unknown price tag however.

  • BMW X6
  • Hyundai Sonata
  • Porsche Panamera
  • Lamborghini Prime

Davido Properties:

Davido reportedly owns mansion in Lekki worth ₦140 million. He is also said to own a house in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, worth around ₦40.

As for cars, Davido loves to flaunt his luxurious wheels on Instagram. For a person that owns a fleet of some of the latest rides, that’s never a bad idea.

Davido owns a Honda worth ₦4 Million, a Porsche that costs nearly ₦21 Million, the Range Rover that has the price of more than ₦20 Million. That’s just some our of his numerous automobiles.

In addition to Davido’s personally acquired properties and fame, he owns a private jet, which was reportedly gifted to him by his father, Deji Adeleke, who is a business mogul and one of the richest men in Nigeria.

Aside from their assets and properties, Davido and Wizkid have several lucrative endorsement deals that have a played a key role in their net worth.

Who’s more popular between Davido and Wizkid?

This, I believe, is a tricky question to ask. Nevertheless, we’ll compare several metrics and see what we arrive at.

As earlier noted, Davido commands more followers on social platforms — so that makes him more popular in that aspect.

Both of them have been featured on the international scene, which means they are both known around the globe.

Davido has collaborated with popular American rappers, Meek Mill and Young Thug; while Wizkid has collaborated with Chris Brown, Wale, and Drake.

Wizkid’s Collaboration with Drake in 2016 gave him international recognition. The song, one dance, reached number one in 15 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

Clearly, Wizkid’s achievement with One dance is a feat Davido has yet to achieve. But he’s more than capable of doing that over the course of time.

Ended their long dispute

It is noteworthy that Nigeria’s two richest musical artistes were involved in a long dispute. However, to the elation of several fans of both singers, the feud was ended in 2018.

And they took to stage to perform Manya together, confirming the rumours that had been making rounds on the internet.

Two very distinct beginnings

Another noteworthy point in the life of the two richest musicians in Nigeria, Davido and Wizkid, is that they have a hugely contrasting background.

Davido was born into the family of one of the richest men in Nigeria. In other words, he was born with a silver spoon.

Wizkid, however, had a humble beginning. He was said to be born into a family of 12 children. Which means, he had to fight and work hard to get to where he is.

Notwithstanding, David Adeleke (AKA Davido) also deserves a lot of credit for the height he has attained.

He is literally more popular than his wealthier father.

That wouldn’t have been possible if he had sat at relaxed, hoping to inherit the inevitable fortune that awaits him.
