Davido’s Endorsement Deal with Bitsika
Davido is considered one of the biggest artists in Nigeria, as well as the continent, Africa. He has been having a growing interest in Bitcoin over the past couple of months.
In October 2020, the artist signed an endorsement deal with the crypto payment platform, Bitsika, one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrency platforms in Africa:
“Been working on this for a while! Glad to finally announce. My first FinTech partnership. This one means so much to me! Our very own cure for all your transfer and payment issues. Bitsika!! Everyone go download and follow now!”

The success of Bitsika after sealing the deal is likely behind Davido’s growing interest in establishing a Bitcoin trading company. The deal has significantly aided the firm’s expansion. The trading platform reportedly processed relatively $40 million worth of transactions in 2020.
Moreover, Nigeria is the largest Bitcoin market in Africa and one of the biggest in the world. Due to the failing economy caused by the devaluation of the country’s national currency Naira, there has been an increase in demand for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as a hedge.
There will surely be a great adoption of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in Nigeria and African nations if Davido makes his intention to launch a trading platform a reality. He has a vast number of followers on all popular social platforms.
