Davido and Wizkid net worth(What Fans Thinks)
I had to make this a subheading because. the last time Davido and Wizkid net worth 2019 was debated, fans were having a different opinion as to who is the richest.
Do you remember the hot debate sometime in 2004 about Ronaldinho and Austin Jay Jay Okocha on who is the best?
While some said it’s Ronaldinho and others said it’s Okocha. The same debate even resurfaced in 2006 presumably after the African Nations Cup.
They were both great players whom I respect a lot but the truth remains one was greater. because his success was unrivaled.
Though both were entertainers and did their magic at different levels in their career. However, I would leave you to decide who is the greater with statistics.
Likewise, we have seen the same comparison on Davido and Wizkid net worth.
So, when we interviewed some of Nigerians, precisely Wizkid and Davido fans about the net worth of the two.

Funny how people can easily forget your real name once you are a star. Sometimes I can’t even begin to wonder how that feels right?
Wizkid was born in Western Nigeria Surulere Lagos state to a Muslim father and a Christian mother. He spent most part of life as a Christian.
But then again you and I know that it’s not unusual for children to follow their mother wherever they go. Mainly because a child spends most of his childhood with mothers.
In the church, he was part of a choir and was a lead vocalist. Soon afterward, he quickly formed a group with 5 of his friends named the Glorious 5.
Together they performed locally. but it is most noteworthy that Wizkid grew up listening to Fella songs, and Reggae from legends like Bob Marley.

Wizkid and Davido Who is Most Popular in The World?
Individually they have both done enough to be popular. However, Wizkid has his own day celebrated in Minnesota US.
This is something Davido is yet to do and I believe having Rihanna dance to Wizkid songs just proves he is more popular.
But this can make for a debate even. Wizkid sold all his ticket in the US so did Davido.
But Wizkid has featured more top rated international stars like Drake who has several platinum albums. Drake loved Wizkid style and he featured him in one of his songs titled “cover me”
Davido has only been featured by Russ and one other in the person of Milk Mells.
In my own opinion from the stats above, I would say Wizkid is more popular.
