“Wizkid” vs “Davido”…. Who Has More International Success?

| - Leave A Comment

Davido and Wizkid are no doubt the biggest music exports to come out of Nigeria and arguably Africa. These two superstars have been putting Africa right on the map as they have achieved enormous successes even in unbelievable territories around the world.

Both have collaborated with big-name international artistes, sold out shows outside the geographical sphere of the motherland, performed at major international festivals (Wireless, Coachella etc) and also won numerous international awards.

But with the ever intensifying continuous argument that has subdued the reality of accepting both as two unique African giants and wanting to establish who is superior internationally, we have decided to put out a question that to some extent can measure both artistes’ international influence and worldwide success. We are now asking;

Between Davido and Wizkid, who has more international success?

  1. As long as David’s fall is bigger than any of Ayo’s song, Davido have more international success

  2. jghbnmmm

  3. hvjg



  6. Mr Dami fall is not bigger than all wizkids song.. ojuelegba was named by fader magazine as number12 greatest songs of all time.. Wiz was awarded 4 writing drakes one dance which is arguably drakes most successful song.. because it broke many records and landed his name on the guiness book of world record. And 4 d records Wiz have done more international collaborations than Obo..he has worked with heavy weights in the industry and shutdown more notable world music centers the records are all there.. I think they are both great but in terms of international recognition Wiz got it.. and funny enough He doesn’t mention many of these fits they are brought out by others..

  7. *feats

  8. Uncle how many views have your Ojuelegba have on YouTube? Fader ko bleaching ni

  9. Oga kel lumpur, One dance has never been one of drake’s biggest songs o. Rumor spreader go and do ur research

    • Tell them ooo

  10. Wizkid…..Lion Of Africa
    Compare him to Fela not Davido, they’re levels to this ?

  11. Oga bad man if you rate success by views then the likes of Selena Gomez would be greater than Beyonce.. yemi alades Johnny held the highest YouTube views for a long time before displaced by fall.. but would you say during those periods she was more successful than Wiz and see,, that’s a lame argument..

  12. Lol, it’s alright to compare them in paparazzi things, but in music my brothers and sisters, wizkid is something else, when wizkid started hitting the international stage, OBO was still looking for collaborations that would put him on the map, Mr lampur your head de Dia, Mr damit David’s “fall” isn’t unique, he obviously sampled Kojo funds lyrics of “dun talking” some J hus lines too, I don’t know which wiz track to mention, wizkid is the real deal, maximum respect to OBO.. E no easy at all to get to any level in life, but you can’t compare christiano Ronaldo with yakubu ayebgeni na.. Make una start from genesis, instead of revelation

  13. Wizkid

  14. Big d, drake can’t forget one dance in his lifetime

  15. I respect your words Malik.. ???

  16. Because OBO also soldout 02arena and cuz FALL has the highest views doesn’t mean he’s up to Wizzy yet. He still gat lots and lots of works to do.. Wizkid has been the most successful internationally for years now and he still holds that position…

    • Davido sold out nothing.

    • It not just about One dance but the hit Pere Got also Rae Shremmured wont forget the Joy people got

  17. Wizkid is the past, Davido is present
    OBO Baddest

  18. You’re saying trash..

  19. fall has proven to b d biggest African song so far in interest. just with that fact alone, Davido is bigger and more recognised both in Africa and internationally. wizkid is only built on hype, let the truth be told! let me not go further

    • Davido is the best and more for me Internationally. When I was in Dubai this February, those guys in Gold Souk were dancing to "Fall" by Davido.
      I love Davido anytime any day and most of his songs are relatable.
      Davido is more relevant and an artist…. His music is always on point.

  20. Mr anonymous, you are talking rubbish…Fall? Biggest African song? Even Yemi Alade’s Johnny is bigger than Fall

  21. why becos u can’t compare elephamelephant nd want is nt possible

  22. why becos u can’t compare elephant nd
    ant is nt possible

  23. I don’t why people are even arguing this.. wen wizkid started hustling for international recognition davido was hustling for best in Africa! Wizkid has had collaborations with drake twice and they were both hit songs, tinnie tempah, skepta, ty dollar Chris Brown. Jus to mention a few. Wizkid gets comments and post from heavy weights like nicki minaj naomi Campbell rihanna etc… pls don’t argue.. davido is not on the international map yet

  24. Wizkid took over from 2baba nd co where d hell is davido @dat time

    Wizkid is d king of d international music in nigeria

  25. Wizkid 4 sure

  26. yes, wiz and davido have both sold out the o2 arena, let’s not forget that wizkid also sold out the 45,000 capacity Royal Albert Hall in 2017, Wiz is the first artist from the African shores to be crowned MOBO best international act, he has also won the billboard music award for his collaboration with Drake on one dance which is arguably one of Drake’s best songs, he has also walked the runway as a model for the renowned fashion line Dolce and gabbana, wizkid’s song daddy yo was one of the soundtracks of the 2018 movie Pacific Rim uprising, wizkid has worked with industry greats such as drake, future, rae sremmurd, Chris Brown, major lazer, Wale, Akon, Calvin Harris, metro boomin, French Montana, skepta to mention but a few. he has also met rihanna, Nicki Minaj and so many more. Davido Is also a great artist but internationally Wiz is on top, he put Nigeria on the international map with the release of ojuelegba and he can be called the progenitor of afrobeats

    • Davido is still more relevant.

  27. Seriously I think both of them are great, but we cannot have two kings in one kingdom. Based on international success…even d international artist do cut cap for wizkid. The likes of drake, Chris brown, and even minaj. Wizzy is dame good internationally and u can’t compare him with OBO.


  28. *** I meant 5,000 capacity Royal Albert Hall

  29. let’s not also forget that last year Wiz became the first African to sell out the skyway theatre in Minneapolis and October 6 has been declared as Wizkid day in Minnesota

  30. Tooxclusive una get problem .instead of promoting unity u are doing comparison….any way..wizkid has more recognition internationally..if u dont agree argue with ur keypad.

  31. Mr anonymous u dont know nothing..gerraouta here nigga..wizkid is built on hype?..ur sense is built on hype

  32. Mr u dont know nothing..gerraouta here nigga..wizkid is built on hype?..ur sense is built on hype

  33. Drake ftd wizkid on one dance did he even have a verse on it. I go with OBO anytime

  34. Which kain argument b dis…..even davido papa know say wizzy big pass am anyday anytime…..shey bcos say davido perform for 02 arena,fuck it wizzy was the first African artist to do that na,one pesin come mention say fall big pass every wizzy song,just wizzy superstar album is much more recognized than every davido song till date……argue with your keyboard

  37. U pple went will u learn that tooxclusive just wants ur traffic.. They know Wiz is better our there

  38. The only international achievement by davido is getting liked on Instagram by CR7. Dats all.. he can be d biggest in Africa, but u see international… Abeg, he is still following Wizkids footsteps, because, wizy is d elder…

  39. some pple are just dumb..
    why did Sony terminate davido contracts? because he couldn’t blend his sound to the international market
    and don’t forget wizzy performance in Indian, and his day in US. Albert hall concert in London..
    Wizkid was among those Akon signed to konvict music in 2012
    p. diddy hailed him as the best in Africa
    and honestly it’s only people that like party songs that would say davido is better than wizzy…listen to the lyrics.
    we know as teniola dey write songs give am.. wizzy has surpassed the level of dbanj and 2face..others dey follow

  40. Starboy international lomo.

  47. And one more all ayo song together no reach davido if, not to naw talk of fall

  48. You guys that keep saying wizkid sold out o2 first…think b4 u talk who were the supporting act for wizzy….tiwa, tekno, Mr eazi, Maleek berry, so u guys should stop saying wizkid sold out o2 he didn’t but davido did.

  107. i think its wizkid we can all see that, but davido song fall is no 28 on billboard but davido just started gaining recognision 2017 so its wizkid follow me on instagram @ flawd_forever

  108. Mehnnn, last last star all the way, I respect that gee stop comparing him to up coming tnx!..

  109. Star boi, u re incomparable not to talk of obo, obo is try but to get to that level wiz is now, he need a good coach like star boy!.. I respect u bor, from street boy to street boss, If u no, u no!..

  110. This site is obliviously getting payment from Davido, Before I give my facts I’ll like you all to know that I’m not against Davido, because he is doing well and taking Nigeria name to many places, But the real fact is you can’t compare a BOY to a full grown MAN, Talking about international success, this argument has taken place sometime ago, between Davido and Wizkid, and Wizkid prove to the world that he is more recognized all over when he won the MOBO International, this is an award that you have the likes of Kendrick lamer, Jzey, Rihanna, just to mention a few they where all nominated for this award, Wizkid sold out at O2 Arena on the 26 May, 2018 we all know that this date is the same Night that the Champions league final will be played, but he still sold out, Wizkid has been nominated in the Grammy Award, Wizkid has is own day in a state in USA, that can speak for it’s self, just only future international artist have their day in the US, and all you saying Wizkid sold out with the help of other Artist, I’ll say you are just been sick and you are so local up steels, When Other American Artist have their show there, most of the biggest artist in America all perform, so that does not mean they helped him sold out, we all know Davido paid heavily for the TV station that covered his show, common any body can pay for their shows to be covered by a British Station, Wizkid is so professional in what he dose, he can never see his taking to instagram and announcing to his fans that he was just been followed by CR7, lastly all of you saying fall is way bigger than Wizkid songs are just been foolish, so you all are trying to say Yemi Alade song that has been the highest viewed for so long is way better than Wizkid’s and Davido songs or even Olamide??? Please let’s just be reasonable, I will stop here, but I need you all to to when it comes to negative things like this the Davido’s fans are always the first to commnet negatively, We the Wizkid fans we don’t look for trouble, but we won’t allow you step on our toes

  111. Wizkid is the boss

  112. wizzy

  113. Wizkid is 100% successful dan davido both outside countrys and here Davido never reach, secondly davido no fit freestyle for public but wizzy can he is d king of music and very successful

  114. I never saw fall in top 50 billboard music,mumu you don’t know how awards drake won with one dance,the records one dance broke ,and its on Guinness record book,you saw people dancing to fall in Dubai ,drake performed come closer in Canada and Rihana danced lovingly to it,and you open your unwashed mouth and say OBO is bigger ,you need sense

  115. Davido no smell wiZKId
    wizkid is d king of music
    c now fever na no 1 for google
    wizkid is also richer dan davido
    starboy 40m$
    davido 37m$

    so wizzy pass by far
    if u disagree check

  116. Starboy remain the best….one Africa star

  117. Davido #OBO is on top of the List no doubt

  118. Well you have all said well, but listen selling out of shows, having the biggest hit/views, is not really the thing to argue about, why because, even as Wiz was one of the first African Artist to step on a red carpet oversea, OBO remains the number one as at present, meaning if as an artist and you have no progressive, constant, hunger for each of your event, then you are missing out.
    But steady been what the people want is worth the Success, so to end this OBO is An American born Nigerian, having been he need not to struggle abroad, but to place his focus on where he feels not that he is not know. And beside OBO first recorded track was not just in Nigeria….

  119. that is good
