Today we are honoured to bring you the biggest Davido endorsement deals that made him millions of dollars.
Record sales is not the only revenue stream an artist look up to.
In a pirate filled country like Nigeria waiting or hoping for record sales is like jumping on a slow train in China when you can afford the fastest one that will get you to your destination quick.
Thank God the Nigerian music industry is getting valued the way it deserves and those that are playing the game well are now cashing out big and becoming so rich.
Nigerian Musicians are already making a fortune from numerous record deals before the foreign labels start coming in to invest.
Davido is the son of a Nigerian reclusive Billionaire but still he makes money on his own from his trending songs and escalated music career.
Today we are going to through the biggest Davido endorsement deals so far.
