Davido’s love affair with automobiles got off on a smooth ride. His first car – after he gained fame in the music industry – came on the heels of his first album, Omo Baba Olowo, in 2013.
In 2012, at the age of 20, Davido was announced the winner of the Headies Next Rated category to win a car prize. The prize was later presented to him in 2013 – it was a red coloured Hyundai Sonata 2013.
Davido was so happy with the automobile that he drove the car to every event just to prove it was a proceed of his brilliant effort at hitting the music mainstream market after the release of his debut album in 2012.
The ownership of a 2013 edition Hyundai Sonata became the turning point for Davido’s obsession with expensive cars.
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.
