Davido, a highly talented Nigerian vocalist and songwriter, initiated his musical journey while studying at Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama. In 2011, he made the significant decision to depart from his university education to fully devote himself to his burgeoning music career. Subsequently, following discussions with his father, Davido enrolled at Babcock University in Ogun State, ultimately graduating with a first-class degree in music.
He co-founded the HKN record label in partnership with his brother, Adewale Adeleke. However, Davido eventually moved on from HKN and established his current record label, DMW, in 2016.
Currently, Davido’s net worth is an impressive $90M, ranking him as the wealthiest Nigerian singer. His financial stature allows him to consider substantial investments, such as a private jet, as we’ll explore shortly.
In 2018, Davido made headlines when he announced the acquisition of a private jet through his social media channels. At that time, he held the distinction of being the youngest Nigerian to possess a private jet. Notably, Davido’s father also possesses a Bombardier Global Express 6000, estimated to be valued at $62M, further underlining the family’s penchant for luxury and high-end transportation.
