The DMW boss would also be remembered fondly for setting the internet on fire on his birthday in 2020 when he acquired a multimillion-dollar mansion to celebrate himself.
The three-storey Lekki mansion became the talk of the town because of its stately setting and view. No one does luxury better than the OBO.
5. Diamond jewellery for himself and his 30BG crew:
In 2018, the OBO also stunned many with how he celebrated his 26th birthday. Davido stirred up a major emotional outburst online when he took his entire 30 men crew on a musical tour of Europe. In between, he took them all jewellery shopping that cost him millions of dollars.
Even though the OBO didn't celebrate himself this year due to the recent tragedy of losing his first son, he still holds a sacred place in the hearts of many of his fans, home and abroad. Happy birthday to the true 001.
