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.

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?

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.
