Celebrities Behaving Badly: Davido Tweets 10Million Naira ($72,000) Paycheck on Twitter, Calls it Change

Davido, an artist and the son of a Nigerian billionaire, recently tweeted his paycheck of 10 Million Naira roughly $72,000/40,000 pounds on twitter. He referred to the check as “change.” In a country where the average citizen is said to live below $2.00 a day? He has since apologized.

Manager Asa Asika, the in your face flaunting of wealth is becoming a pattern with your client, in a distasteful way. Davido did this in his video Dami Duro, now he does this on twitter with his paycheck. You might want to pull your client in a bit. He is a good kid and has his head screwed on right. So, let’s avoid the unnecessary drama, shall we?

Thank you.
