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

Taiwo Oluwafemi | - 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?

“”Wizkid” vs “Davido”…. Who Has More International Success?”, 5 out of 5 based on 1 ratings.

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

    • Avatar

      Don’t forget, Wizkid has 1 Grammy nomination while David has never been nominated for Grammy.
      And also Wizkid has been nominated 177 times in his career and he won 55 awards, while David has been nominated 87 times in his career and won 42 awards! With this it’s clear that Wizkid is greater than davido!
      Period! Go make your research

    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..

    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. Avatar

    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

    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

    • Avatar

      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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
