Nigerian singer Davido has revealed that he bagged a multimillion-naira endorsement deal at the age of 17.
He said he had just two songs when a telecom company gave him an endorsement deal worth N20 million.
The ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ crooner disclosed this in a recent interview.
Davido said: “I remember when MTN, a telecommunication company, came, and they were like, they want to do endorsement, but then he (dad) was like, how much, and I said 20 million. I was 17. Nobody has seen that kind of money.
“Wow, this is from Music, and it’s off like two songs, of course. I’m like, ‘Daddy, see, we can do this’.
“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.”
