In 2012, at 20 years old, Davido was announced the winner of the Headies Next Rated category to win a vehicle prize. The prize was later given to him in 2013 – it was a red shaded Hyundai Sonata 2013.
Davido was so content with the car that he drove the vehicle to each occasion just to demonstrate it was a continue of his splendid exertion at hitting the music standard market after the arrival of his of his debut album in 2012.
The responsibility for 2013 version Hyundai Sonata turned into the defining moment for Davido’s fixation on expensive automobiles.
The Hyundai Sonata joined a Silver coloured Honda Accord 2012 edition car in his garage – the car had been in his garage before he became famous.
After flagging off his HKN records alongside his cousins, Davido’s fortunes – and car collection – soon changed for the better.
Davido’s early automobiles
As Davido’s music career kicked off – amidst scandals – one thing that has remained as important as his music to Davido is the cars.
Between 2013 and 2016, Davido acquired six different luxurious cars. The six cars would have depleted wealthy men’s pocket to the tune of N100 million.
Before the end of 2013, Davido had already acquired a Chevrolet Camaro GS valued at N6 million; a Audi Q7 valued at N12 million; a black Range Rover sport valued at N16 million; and a Black Mercedez Benz G-Wagon acquired at a staggering N21 million after the release of his viral single, Skelewu.
The acquisition of the G-Wagon was announced on his Instagram account with the words: “E don dey come oh!!!! #December2013 #Skelewu.
These cars acquired by Davido in the spate of three years are a Porsche Panamera valued at N28.8 million; and an Audi R8 – which he acquired for his 23rd birthday in 2015 – worth N23.4 million.
Davido’s current cars
Between January 2016 and June 2018, Davido’s career witnessed a major leap to win over 10 awards for his musical brilliance – one of which was the BET Awards for Best International Act.
And this leap was also witnessed in his choice of expensive cars befitting his garage.
Davido’s garage welcomed three new choice automobiles. Currently, inside the luxurious garage of Davido are three well-parked automobiles worth over N202 million.

On May 1, 2018, Davido broke the internet when he gifted his girlfriend, Chioma Avril with a Porshe car valued at N45 million.
