How did Davido Make His Money?
Born on November 21, 1992, in Atlanta, Georgia, Davido grew up in Lagos, Nigeria, where he went to the British International School. Upon graduating, he continued his studies at Oakwood University, where he majored in business administration. Ultimately, it was during his college days that he developed an interest in music. Wanting to take his hobby further, he eventually bought his own music equipment to record his own beats.
After spending some time in London, he returned to Nigeria and enrolled at Babcock University. Around that same time, he began to work on his debut album, Omg Baba Olowo. Many months later, he released his first recording titled, Back When, which ended up being a major hit.
The following year, his debut studio album hit stores. A 17-track project, it featured guest appearances from several artists including Ice Prince, 2 Face Idiba, B.Red, and Sina Rambo. Despite negative reviews from critics, who denounced its production and lyrical content, it won many awards including a Nigeria Entertainment Award nomination for Best Album of the Year.
Though he hasn’t released any additional albums since, he has come out with many singles such as Gone, Dodo, The Sound (Feat. Uhuru and DJ Buckz) and Fans Mi (Feat. Meek Mill). In 2016, he also issued an extended play titled, Son of Mercy, which gave rise to five tracks including How Long, Return, and Gbahbe Oshi. Well received, the EP has already racked up tens of thousands of streams on Soundcloud.
Considering his work as a recording artist, it’s only natural that a significant portion of his income comes from his records. On top of that, however, he also pulls in a decent amount of earnings from putting on concerts and shows, though he doesn’t have any scheduled at the moment.
In terms of other ventures, it was announced that he had signed an ~$83,000 endorsement deal with MTN in 2012. A year later, he also signed with Guinness Nigeria; as part of the deal, the singer later performed at the Guinness World of More Concert alongside Ice Prince, P-Square, Phyno, and Burna Boy, among a few others. Earlier this year, he also received endorsement deals from Pepsi and Infinix.
