Davido, a popular afrobeat artist, has sparked debate after revealing the fee he costs to perform at an event.
Davido revealed the number of events he attends in a month and the cost of having him on any show in an interview with Zahir Jooma, co-owner of the jewellery business Icebox.
The musician stated in a now-viral video that he now charges $600,000
“I mean now I charge $600,000 for a show. Now it is less. Actually. Because fewer people can pay. I do three to four shows in a month, which is $2 million to $3 million,” he said.
