Nigerian music executive, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has stated that Wizkid’s $3million endorsement deal with UBA is chicken change.
Recall that the award winning artiste, Wizkid signed a major ambassadorial deal with international sportswear brand, Puma and was made face of the new JD x Puma Suede Classics campaign.
Reacting to the news, Davido threw a subtle shade at wizkid as he insinuated that endorsement deals are bullshits, rather celebrities should request for shares of the company.
“Fuck an Endorsment deal ask for part of the company .. #Changetherules”
A Twitter user mocked the ‘omo baba olowo’ over his statement, implying that he said it because he doesn’t get good offers from big companies. He also referenced Wizkid’s $3million deal with UBA and questioned if anyone in their right mind would turn down such a deal.
“Davido said “fvck endorsement deals” because he doesn’t get proper offers from proper companies… Who would say no to a UBA deal worth $3million?
This is why it is very important for artists to grow organically..” he tweeted.
Responding to the post, Davido said laughingly that the sum of $3million can be expended in an instant.
He wrote, “3 m dollars? Lmao ….. something wey go finish now now Cc @icebox.”
