Davido came into limelight in 2011, when he released his hit single, ‘Dami Duro’. The song received nationwide recognition and played a key role in earning him a lucrative endorsement deal with MTN Nigeria the following year.

Wizkid, on the other hand, released his first hit song in 2010 titled Holla at your boy. First impressions matter, they say. And clearly Wizkid took full advantage of his first impression.

  1. I check through and I noticed Davido's awards ain't complete. Is mobo is missing and his MTV (not MTV African?) and some others. Plus you added wizkid's features. Because he was featured in a song that won an award doesn't make him the winner of the award if it was so you should have added also the African songs he was featured in that won awards within Africa too. Awon FC doing the most. The list is trash until it's complete.
