Davido has a word for Forbes ...lol

How dare Forbes Africa make a list of the Top Ten Most bankable and richest African artists and not include Davido's name? Lol. What does Balu mean?

I guess it means 'fuck you Forbes'. Lol

Ivn if e dey pain am, why can't he act mature for once, overlook it and just be silent! SMH!

Anonymous said...

It's not his money. Davido himself said he is "Omo baba olowo".


If you didn't earn it, Forbes will not list it.

I wonder ooo! Pls when u find out let us know. Make E pain am, that he is rich don't mean he must make d list. He obviously didn't meet d other criteria. He should go and work on being bankable! No be by customised rolex #JayBeyBlu

The salient secret for the selected artists is whether they are "fit and proper" to belong. Davido, are u fit and proper? Just asking.

Nonye said...

what Davido and the rest dont understand is that the ranking is based on bankability i.e. between your name, your endorsements, crowd appeal across Africa and your assets how much are you worth? Its not a measurement of liquid cash. To put this in perspective, if Davido and Don Jazzy walked into a bank to ask for a loan, what music-related asset could they provide as security for that loan. I would readily give P-square, 2face et al a loan based on receivables from their next concert anywhere in Africa. On the other hand however, people are entitled to their own opinions and don't have to agree with Forbes

Forbes just assumed so manu things...wizkid cant be richer than the likes of 2face,bankyw n fally ipupa...I guess what davido meant by that is that he knows everyone on that list n knows who is who...donjazzy can't be richer than 2face,dbanj and psquare. Lai lai. All forbes uses is the deals and recent performances. What about longevity..2face n bankyw have been making millions b4 wizkid came on board and they still charge more than wizkid for a show. Shey na ritual money wizkid do ni?.

MINUS DADDY'S MONEY, WE KNOW YOU HAVE TALENT PLENTY. YOU CAN WRITE, CAN PRODUCE,CAN SING. CAN MARKET URSELF.

Either his phone is bad and since he has no job it'll take quite a while to replace OR his data plan expired and it'll take earned money to come back on. Then again, Maybe someone borrowed his dictionary to go write Post UME and ain't brought it back yet.

Because they have something objective moneywise going on? Davido, Forbes is objective. They don't go by fame unless that is the measure. when it comes to measuring worth, they use objective indicators. As it turns out, ya did not make the top 10. You might have been #11 but who knows now...... Numbers are a bitch

People keep Comparing Naeto C with Davido. Well I will say it and with fact, Davido's dad is miles richer than Naeto C's mum wella. There is no comparison, If he gets too much access to his fathers wealth then no artist will even be able to compete in terms of wealth.
