Davido, the famed Afrobeat phenomenon born David Adeleke, has revealed a fascinating anecdote regarding his meteoric climb to stardom.

Davido said in a recent interview about his path in the music business that he earned his first multi-million naira endorsement contract at 17 in a recent interview.

During the interview, the mastermind behind the chart-topping record ‘Timeless’ described how MTN contacted him with a tremendously lucrative offer of a whopping 20 million.

At that moment, Davido recognized that $20 million was quite valuable to him. With just two hit songs receiving substantial radio, the enormity of the offer fully opened his eyes to the tremendous financial opportunities available in the music industry.

Motivated by this sudden knowledge, the young prodigy collected the bravery to approach his father and discuss his musical career goals. To Davido’s pleasure, his father enthusiastically supported his goal, even going so far as to build a studio for him.
