"Davido surpasses Wizkid in terms of success" - Singer Spyro
Singer Spyro made headlines over a statement he made while comparing Nigerian international stars Davido and Wizkid.
Spyro, during an interview, said it is a joke to compare the two singers as he added that Davido has impacted more lives and that, to him, is success.
He, however, acknowledged that the two are great artists and have done well for themselves.
“It’s a very big joke to compare wizkid to Davido, Davido is far more successful than wizkid, Davido has helped a lot of people in the music industry including me,” Spyro says.
