In a recent interview with Spindle magazine, musician, D’banj, disclosed that he signed Davido with a Rolex wristwatch as a signing-on fee back in 2014.
“I remember in 2014 when I went back to Nigeria. Some young guy who used to work for me brought an artist to me and said he wanted me to sign him and I signed the artist. I remember we gave the artist a Rolex watch as a signing-on fee.
“I signed the artist and I got a call later on that the parents of the artist wanted to meet with me. So I went and I saw the parents and they said please I want my boy to go to school.
“I know you have signed him but I really want him to go to school. So I said okay, let him go to school because that is what you want and then after that, he can come back. The boy I am talking about is one of the biggest artist coming in from this new generation which is Davido” he said
