Nigerian artist Davido has disclosed that at the age of 17, he landed a multimillion-naira sponsorship agreement.
He said he only had two songs when a cellular firm offered him a N20 million endorsement contract.
In a recent interview, the ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ singer revealed this.
“I remember when MTN, a telecommunications company, came, and they were like, they want to do endorsement, but then he (dad) was like, how much, and I replied 20 million,” Davido explained. I was 17. Nobody has ever seen such wealth.
“Wow, this is from Music, and of course it’s off like two tracks.” ‘Daddy, see, we can do this,’ I say.
“He looking at it, he built me a studio and gave me some money to run my stuff and did my first album, and it came out really really successful.”
