Nigerian singer, songwriter and record producer, David Adedeji Adeleke better known by his stage name, Davido has been ranked the seventh most influential African in the world after a list of the top 100 most influential African people dropped.
The list which was put together by Africa Report has three Nigerians in the top 10. This includes music superstar Davido, Chimamanda Adichie and Alhaji Aliko Dangote, one of Nigeria’s leading business moguls.
The report looks at individuals in Africa who control the levers of power across politics, business and the arts: from billionaire barons to unpredictable peacemakers and soft-power superstars. It is worthy to note that this wouldn’t be the first time Davido would attain an impressive position on a list of influential Africans.
From all of us here at Naijazzy, we say a big congratulations to him!
