When asked Wizkid and Davido who is the richest? I climb the fence closest to me and sit…lol. There is no definite answer; a common ground is to be found.
While some pick Wizkid over Davido because they say he worked so hard to be where he is today, and Davido had it all on a platter of gold; let us not forget that the only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.
I mean if Davido didn’t work so hard as well, who really knew him? Likewise Wizkid. You know what, let’s shed more light on where these two super talented artistes are coming from.
He was born on the 16th of July, 1990 by a Christian mother to a Muslim father and named Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun.
While growing up and till date, he was fondly called “IB-Boy” by his folks, once popularly known as “lil prinz”; he is famously known as Wizkid to the world.
A chorister in church that grew up in Surulere, listening to King Sunny Ade, Fela Kuti, and Bob Marley songs, these songs did have an influence in the songs he sings today.
In year 2001, he and some of his friends formed a group called Glorious 5; they released an album before going on different lanes. Four years before Banky W found him; Wizkid was mentored and coached by Naeto C.
Hard work plus talent made the success door creak open a little for him as eight years later, he signed a five year record deal with Empire Mates Entertainment, EME.
His song ‘HOLLA AT YOUR BOY’ brought the 20 year old into the spotlight earning him the ‘Next Rated Award’ at the Headies 2010.
In year 2012, he signed an endorsement deal that was said to be worth $350,000 with Pepsi. Year 2013, he signed an endorsement deal with MTN in May and with Guinness in October. Year 2015, he was said to have abandoned MTN for a 128 million naira deal with GLO.
As at 2016, Wizkid was no longer a local champion; his collaboration with Drake on the song ‘One Dance’ that became a global hit brought him into a brighter spotlight that lighted his path to the list of top richest musicians in Africa.
The song also earned him entry into the Guinness book of world records 2018 as the first Afro beats artist.
