First things first, we wish you all our esteem readers a wonderful new year.
The previous year marked a lot of monumental breakthroughs and landmark success in the music industry. Before 2019, the big competition in the music industry has always been Wizkid and Davido. Their competition surpasses that of Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo. In fact, people rightly believe that the argument on the competition of the duo football stars is the same leverages applied for the competition between Wizkid and Davido.
Many people believe Wizkid is more of a talented artist than Davido. They believe Davido despite his wealthy background is a product of hard work. So for years, the big competition was between the two Afrobeat star.
However, the year 2019 brought about some changes in the scope of Afrobeat competition. Ace singer and composer, Burna Boya came through and almost took the front line from the two existing kings of Afrobeat music. If not that there is so much power in the name of an existing brand, Burna Boy’s fame is hot enough to burn down the popularity of any of his contemporaries.
Interestingly, Burna Boy, Wizkid and Davido ruled the Afrobeat world in 2019. Similarly, we expect more from them in this new year.
But, if we are to ask of these three major artists, which of them do you think will lead the Afrobeat un 2020.
For an accurate guess, how about we give a peripheral detail of their activities in 2019.
If you ask me, I will say Wizkid has been on low-key for sometimes now. Only little has been heard from the singer of recent. However, despite Wizkid’s silent nature, the musician signed some of the biggest endorsement deals in 2019.
Wizkid signed a $3 million deal with the United Bank of Africa in 2019. That is the biggest endorsement deal to be signed by any music artists in Nigeria. Ciroc also signed a mouthwatering deal with the music star, also, Wizkid was seen on the runway for Dolce and Gabanna one of the biggest fashion wears in the world.
These are some of Wizkid’s endorsement deals, you will agree that Wizkid is more of the silent business mogul than a singer.
When they say make your passion your profession and work will become play. Such is the life of Davido. The singer came into the year 2019 with a total shut down of London city with his concert at the 02 Arena in January 2019.
The singer is currently the brand ambassador for Infinix mobile. Davido is one of the most passionate music artists in Nigeria. The Assurance crooner exhibit so much energy in singing. Though is rivals have argued that the singer has a quacky voice like a frog. However, the singer has been able to command much respect with many of his hit singles.
King Burna as he is popularly called started the year with an endorsement deal with Star lager beer. Burna Boy came through to become the first music artist to become a brand ambassador for the foremost white foamy beer.
There is no doubt that Burna Boy is currently the biggest music artist in Nigeria. He came through with a fire of fame that no one could explain in 2019. All his songs in 2019 are hit back to back.
