Highly-rated Afrobeats artist, David Adeleke alias Davido, has recently stunned fans by disclosing the astonishing fee he charges for a show.
The DMW boss made this disclosure while responding to a question from the interviewer who asked about the number of shows he conducts in a month.
Davido revealed that he charges a remarkable $600,000 (approximately N550M) for each show.
Furthermore, Davido explained that he does not have numerous shows in a month because his fee is beyond the financial reach of many show promoters. He added that only a few show organizers can book him and he often ends up having like 4 shows in a month.
