Davido has disclosed that at the age of 17, he landed a multimillion-naira sponsorship agreement.
He claimed he only had two songs when a cellular company offered him a N20 million endorsement deal.
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 said 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 songs.” ‘Daddy, see, we can do this,’ I say.
“He looked at it, built me a studio, gave me some money to run my stuff, and I did my first album, which was extremely successful.”
