Davido endorsement deals run from millions into tens of millions. which is why in today’s post I have decided to cover all the endorsement deals of Davido.
The truth is if you wish to be famous in a couple of years, all you have to do is go into entertainment.
but it’s also true not everyone can make it in the field of entertainment. and this does not mean you should not try.
For Davido singing just comes naturally and if you combine his talent and hard work. you and I can agree David’s fame didn’t come cheap.
It’s a product of hard work dedication, hustles, and grinding all masterfully crafted into one.
I say masterfully crafted into one because it takes mastery to produce hit songs like what you have below here…
You see all the tracks here, they are all hit songs. this means he knows and he is a master of his craft, right?
You may not agree but the answer is YES!
So in today’s post, you and I will be looking at every endorsement deal the singer has landed over his career.
How Many Endorsement Deals Does Davido Have?
How many endorsement deals does Davido have? Davido currently has an endorsement deal with Martel which is a French Cognac and one of the biggest companies that produce Cognac in the world. He also has an endorsement deal with Wema Bank after raising $600,000 on Instagram.
While there is no short answer to this question for the reason that endorsements expire after the year the agreement reached elapses.
but what I aim to do is combine all Davido endorsements from the beginning of his career to the present day.
What this means is that whether the endorsement deal has expired, you will still see it here.
Now to answer your question about what is Davido endorsements, I will try to touch every endorsement deals that Davido has ever approved…
David over the years of his illustrious 10 years musical career has bagged several seals of approvals. from companies like Hong Kong base, mega mobile manufactures Infinix.
Today the singer is among some of the top rich music superstars in the country. thanks to a series of amazing tracks from the singer which has also made him the top 20 most popular musicians in Nigeria.
Davido’s albums and songs have also been one of the reasons he has had several deals with bigger brands.
Let’s face it no one wants to associate with failure so technically for you to receive eyeballs. from big brands like MTN, you need to be doing something right with your music career.
As a result of the production of good quality albums, this has also led to an increase in Davido awards won.
Let me quickly tell you in plain text what is an endorsement deal.
According to Musicindustryinsideout, an endorsement deal is a business arrangement. which yield a commercial return for the sponsor and endorsee and in exchange provide an ‘in-kind’ or cash benefit to the artist.
and one of the easiest ways of landing an endorsement is by having a strong social media presence. Heck, many of Davido cars were purchased with money from endorsement deals.
Quickly let me give you an example of why brands endorse artists.
For example, I am a company selling a particular brand of juice, in this case, let’s use lemonade for this example.
I have competitors like 5 Alive and Exotic making their own flavor.
Now 5 Alive, Exotic, and my Lemonade company are all serving the same audience. in this case, people that love drinking juice.
In other to beat the competition and edge them in the marketplace, I need to build people’s trust.

This is where celebrities come into play!
These celebs e.g Davido has their own audience on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
I enlist him as a possible celeb I would love to promote my product because he already has some. level of trust within his audience base.
Now all I have to do is pitch my product to Davido and assume we were able to reach good terms of the agreement. I would have him promote my production to his audience.
These tactics will automatically increase my brand awareness and give me that edge needed to beat my competitors…
That’s one of the major reasons you see all these big celebs bagging several endorsement deals.
Having explained the reason for an endorsement let’s take a look at a list of Davido endorsements.

Davido PUMA Endorsement Deal 2021
Davido puma endorsement deal came somewhat of a surprise to fans across Africa.
This is probably because Afrobeat poster boy Wizkid is the previous man that was the face of the brand.
So why did PUMA opt for Davido instead of renewing the contract with Wizkid?
Well, this is purely speculation but I believe it should have something to do with how active they are on social media.
I mean Davido is one of the most active social media influencers I have seen in quite a while.
Heck, when I wrote about the top 20 highest paid influencers in Africa, Davido alongside MO Salah topped that list.
I would say Wizkid is not exactly the social media kind of guy. He is a private person.
Davido on the other hand is a very public person and knows how to relate with people from all walks of life.
According to Davido, he is super excited about the deal because growing up he has seen and witnessed the huge role PUMA played in the development of sports in Africa.
As a matter of fact, here is exactly how the singer said it.
Growing up, I saw PUMA play an important part in African sports, sponsoring many different football federations”, said Davido.
“I also saw the kind of family PUMA had built with the likes of Usain Bolt, Maradona, Neymar, Jay Z, Nipsey, Rihanna, Lewis Hamilton among other superstars and I thought, that’s an amazing family to be a part of!
“All these contribute to my excitement to collaborate with this brand and take it to the next level in Nigeria, Africa as well as with fans across the world,” he added.
Also, here is what PUMA general manager EEMEA distribution said:
We could not be more excited to welcome Davido to the PUMA family!” said Johan Kuhlo, PUMA’s General Manager EEMEA Distribution. “Throughout our history, PUMA has had strong roots in Africa, football, and beyond. Signing Davido is both a clear commitment to Africa as a key market and a sign that African culture is becoming more and more relevant globally”.
The Davido PUMA deal saw the singer become the first African global brand ambassador for the company.
This will make him the face of PUMA across sub-Saharan Africa, North America, and the rest of the world.
Taking to his social profile, Davido posted photos of himself and his friends who all dawned on the PUMA kits.
The company also announced that Davido will also dawn the brand’s basketball kit in a bid to also promote basketball on the continent.
So how much does Davido PUMA endorsement deal cost? Davido’s PUMA endorsement deal is speculated to have cost the company a massive $1,000,000 to put the signature of the singer to paper for this deal to happen.
Let’s dive right into other endorsement deals of the singer, shall we?
Davido Wema Bank Endorsement Deal 2021
As if 2021 was not enough for the singer in terms of success, the singer added another win before the year could run out.
Perhaps let me throw some context into that in order to paint a perfect picture of this subheading for you.
Despite not winning any award in 2021, Davido had 6 top 1 songs on Apple Music which is the most for an artist in the country.
He rounded up the year as 2nd and 3rd most streamed artist on Apple Music and Spotify.
But the moment that drove fans crazy and talked on social media was the 240 million Naira stunt on social media.
A stunt that saw the singer equally donate 250 million to orphanages across Nigeria while also bagging an endorsement deal.
The Davido Wema Bank endorsement deal came about on the 3rd of November 2021 as the singer was seen at Wema Bank Headquarters signing a lucrative deal.
While the specific amount of the deal was not revealed, many jumped to the conclusion that it could be worth 1 billion Naira.
On top of that, David Adeleke Adedeji was also gifted a brand new car as part of this deal.
Now come let’s take a look at other endorsement deals of the singer, shall we?
Davido Martell Blue Swift Endorsement Deal 2021
OBO has been killing it in 2021 with lots of endorsement deals and he just added another to the already long list.
Martell has enlisted the service of the singer who coined the popular slang E Choke to be the face of their brand.
But first, let’s take a little history lesson on the Martell Cognac, shall we?
Martell was founded by Jean Martell in the year 1715. It is part of the Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët subsidiary of the French wines and spirits conglomerate Pernod Ricard.
Davido Martell cognac endorsement is the 4th endorsement the singer has landed in the year 2021.

Davido Pepsi Endorsement Deal
Travelbeta Endorsement Deal
Davido landed an endorsement with Travelbeta in the middle part of 2019.
Travelbeta deals on hotel reservations, booking of flights, tourism, and more.
For example, you wish to travel down to the United Kingdom, all you have to do is have Travelbeta book you on whatever flight they have available.
Also, If should you want to book hotel reservations? get in touch with customer support and just like that you have yourself a hotel reservation.
I believe you get the drift right?
OBO did a short commercial with his ex Chioma Avril Rowland.
Here is a video of the advert!
While this agreement was done behind closed doors, Shoutmeceleb.com gathered. that Travelbeta as a brand paid quite a mouth-watering fee to get David to pen any deal.

It took Infinix about 7 months of trying to get Davido to agree to contract terms.
and right up till this moment, Davido is a brand ambassador to Infinix mobile.
This means for every brand new product release to the market, Davido is among some of the Beta users.
This deal is estimated to have been worth more than 25 million Naira. with an open room for renegotiation of contract terms.
Davido Mtn Pulse Endorsement Deals
Okay if you live in modern Africa chances are you know who these guys are right?
but just in case you don’t let me perhaps indulge you a little.
MTN is a South African telecommunications company much like the very Nigerian brand GLO.
Due to Nigeria’s large population, South African companies love to take their business down to Nigeria.
While MTN is fully operational in more than 15 African countries, Nigeria is one of her major target markets.
Enough with this brief story already!
In 2013 MTN made Davido a mouth-watering offer that’s worth 30 million Naira for his signature.
Although this deal lasted for a year, it mostly looked like it was going to fall off the cliff.
Long story short, the deal later ended the next year and Davido walked home with N30 million.
but prior to the end of this deal, the singer joined the likes of Psquare, Dbanj on stage. at the Guinness world of more concerts held in SA.
Sony Music Endorsement Deal
Yeah, I know I haven’t spoken about this but how can I not talk about this right?
Sony Music is known popularly for its stronghold in entertainment. especially because that’s where the late king of pop spent the major part of his life dropping hit tracks.
There truly won’t be another like Michael Jackson with regards to his compassion and love for humanity.
With that said, do you know that Sony music signed Davido to a record deal?
In 2016 which saw a higher increase of fans following the now 28 years old Davido. Sony signed a deal with OBO which is the title of his first album.
According to Wikipedia, this deal signed saw the release of his 5 track EP.
In late 2016 the contract between David and Sony was reviewed due to control issues.

If gained lots of social media activities, while fall became the. longest-charting pop song from Naija in Billboard history.

This can be seen in most of the deals that Davido has signed these past years.
but what is the estimated value of this deal…

The year is still young so whether you and I will see more endorsement remains to be something of a possibility.

Nothing can beat that sort of crazy right?
Especially if you replay the fact that he is just a newborn baby who just came into this world.
Davido son, David Adeleke Jr bagged his first endorsement deal just a month after his birth.
