Have you noticed most of Davido‘s songs come with the line “wire-me-money”?
26 year old music star Davido is one lad whose star keeps ascending.
The young Afropop sensation handles his fame pretty well, plus, he’s extremely rich. As the King of Pop is to Michael Jackson, so Omo Baba Olowo is to Davido.
His fans know him to very generous, sometimes surprising them with monetary gifts at random.
His charity also extends to people outside his industry and we often don’t get to hear about it until the recipients announce their gratitude on social media.
Perhaps his magnanimity coupled with the theme of money in Nigerian music, make a number of his songs include the phrase “wire-me-money”
Whether he is the lead artiste or he is featured by another artiste, Davido never fails to carry his bag of “wire-me-money” refrains.
He sings “shawty want a million dollar, say make I wire wire…” in the 2017 hit track Fia. And he doesn’t waste time to tell us about his money-loving girlfriend on ‘One Ticket” with Kizz Daniel. His opening line goes thus “everytime wire me money, hello baby have you sent it…”
While pledging his love to his super woman in “Wonder Woman“, the music star still finds a way to squeeze in money issues. He sings “shey make I wire, wire, If na pounds or na dollar dollar”.
And we did not expect anything less in the aptly titled “AZA” with Duncan Mighty. As the Port Harcourt boy rhapsodizes about the culinary delights of the south-south people, Davido sings, “baby you wan see my wire, oya say your AZA, baby say your AZA”.
So can all musicians just go ahead and agree that “wire-me-money” belongs to Davido and Davido alone? No one else should use it. Because it won’t quite sound good except it’s coming from Davido.
Now, let us follow Duncan Mighty and get some ofe nsala!
