Kelechi Iheanacho and Davido
Who is richer between Kelechi Iheanacho and Davido?
You’ll hear quite a few people say footballers are paid weekly.
But within a week, some very popular musicians, like Davido, attend shows up to 5 times, and they’re paid over N5 million naira for a show.
Do you still think a footballer can easily be so rich compared to a musician?
Musicians could get sponsored posts on their social media pages.
Since they’re very popular, and can influence a large number of people, brands pay musicians (not just musicians though), to post their products for a fee which is usually in several hundred thousands.
Again, musicians earn per music sale.
A good musician can decide to release a new song every week to counter the weekly earnings of his counterpart footballer.
Don’t you think so?
On the other hand, not all musicians have these superpowers to create rapid revenue.
And even for the good ones with these superpowers, it doesn’t always work.
No matter what happens, a footballer gets his weekly pay, musicians would have to work to get to match up the earnings of a footballer per week.
Today, we have Davido and Kelechi Iheanacho on this wealth scale…
