ultra high mugu spotted. High earners in developed countries are taxed 40% of their income. Go and do the maths and come back to me. Mikel was paid 50k pounds weekly at Chelsea till around 2013 when they increased it to 75k pounds and finally reached the height of 120k for two seasons before he left. Do your calculation mugu for 13 yrs then remove 40% and come back to me.

Why tell lies?

MSN is calling Forbes but that story was taken from a Kenyan blog called The Star.

David Adeleke is a pathetic liar who is not worth up to a billion Naira.

Where is his jet?
Where is Chioma's Porsche?
Where is her endorsement deal worth 60M?
Where is her cooking show?
Where is his 30 billion Naira?

U expect Forbes to sue 56000 websites n blogs around the world that uses their Brand Name to sell their website?

The Forbes website is more thsn enough to save millions of articles on their database.

Davido isn't worth 16 million dollars i.e 5 billion naira. He has already said himself that he's almost a billionaire.

Why do you waste your time on that ignorant dude? Davido highest endorsement is far less than 100 million naira. How much did he make from selling albums? Funny he only released one album in his entire career. Even if he sells one million original copies of his only album he will make less than 50 million naira when production cost is factored in. at most Davido will make 8 million naira per show and after all expenses he should be lucky to get 2 million per show. Calculate all this money in naira form and convert to dollar. No Nigeria artists have a net worth of $500,000. All their houses and cars are cooked up story. They are hustlers looking for their next meal

Stop fooling yourself. The total number of people with a million dollar net worth is less than 8,000 in lagos state and less than 16,000 in all of Nigeria. Do some reading and stop acting like a clown. Davido don't have $500,000 in cash or net worth. Even his father's net worth is less than $200 million. You guys are clown. Una see money finish
