Davido spent US$2 million on last album

Nigerian afrobeats superstar, David Adeleke, aka Davido, has disclosed he spent $2 million (almost one billion naira) on his third studio album ‘A Better Time’.

Davido revealed this during one of his media tours for his new album ‘Timeless’ in the United States.

Speaking on the Ebro in the Morning Show on Hot 97FM, New York, the 30 Billion Gang honcho explained that the figure covered features, videos, and promotions.

He said he sent just $300,000 on his latest album ‘Timeless’, and he has already made more money from the investment than his last album.

He said, “My last album, I will tell you, I probably spent $2 million. That is for everything. You know what I’m saying?

“I haven’t even spent $300k on this album [Timeless]. And I made more already in three days. It just shows me the level of where African music is going.”

Davido’s third studio album ‘A Better Time’ was released in 2020 with guest features from American heavyweights such as Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Young Thug, Lil Baby, and Summer Walker.
