Known for his energetic hits and larger-than-life personality, Davido is not just enjoying the sights and sounds of the Mother City but he's also diving into the world of cryptocurrency with the launch of his own coin, $Davido.

The DMW label owner made the exciting announcement on his X handle, sharing a screenshot of his coin, which runs on Solana’s blockchain platform.

Barely hours after its launch, $DAVIDO sky-rocketed to the top spot on DEX Screener, capturing major attention from his fan base.

Additionally, the "Gobe" hitmaker is a big fan of the country's vibrant music scene, its friendly people, and the breathtaking landscapes.

A few months ago, Davido was in South Africa to record a new song with local stars Young Stunna and DJ Maphorisa.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of this collaboration, which promises to be a hit given the talent involved.

Recently, Davido took to social media to announce his return to South Africa. He shared a photo of himself enjoying a shopping spree, clearly having a blast in the company of friends and fans.

“Cape Town moments 🇿🇦,” he wrote.

@badlieutanant took the time to speak on some other “issues”: “Davido, you're not a child anymore. Sort out your issues with Big Wiz and Burna Boy. Instead, you should unite and concentrate on pushing afrobeat forward together.”
