Nigeria’s Afro-Soul artiste Davido has been announced as the 7th most influential African in the world by The Africa Report.

According to its website, The Africa Report is a leading news organization in Africa published by Jeune Afrique Media Group (JAMG).

In its midyear report 2019, the organization listed the 100 most influential Africans. In the list are some powerful personalities in business, music, the arts, and other industries.

Luxuriating at the very top of the list is Nigeria’s and Africa’s wealthiest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, reportedly worth $10.3 billion.
