A Nigerian man has taken to social media to share the result of his comparative analysis of Nigerian music stars, Davido and Wizkid vis-a-vis football icons, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
According to the man in a Twitter post, Wizkid can be likened to Messi, while Davido is similar to Cristiano Ronaldo.
There has been a longstanding rivalry and debate amongst football fans over who is greater between Messi and Ronaldo, just as there is the ongoing debate about who is better at music between Wizkid and Davido.
On different occasions, people have tried to compare these two leading Nigerian singers to the top footballing geniuses.
Speaking on the matter, the analyst identified as Morris Monye wrote;
”My last take
”Davido is CR7.
”More expressive, more vain, A “clutch” musician delivering hit after hit.
”His success is solely from hardwork than musical gift, Alpha male.
”Wizkid is Messi.
”Arguably the greatest, purely gifted at times magical, minds his business, does not talk.”
My last take
Davido is CR7.
More expressive, more vain, A "clutch" musician delivering hit after hit.
His success is solely from hardwork than musical gift, Alpha male.
Wizkid is Messi.
Arguably the greatest, purely gifted at times magical, minds his business, does not talk.

Fans of the two Nigerian musicians gave some interesting takes in contribution to the analysis.
@IamTheIroko said; Burna Boy is Neymar.. Wanting to impose himself.
@BadejoSeun10; Burna boy is Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Arrogant, Also respect Wizkid same way Zlatan respect Messi. Talented and cocky
@231_michel; Wizkid is both Messi & Ronaldo but Davido can be Ronaldo.
Son of Mercy was a journey, Davido wasn’t comfortable with. Unlike, Wizkid’s, Sounds from the Other Side – Soundman EP – Made in Lagos which were successful experiments with consistent hard work – CR7
@hyacinth_okoro; Please, wizkid is NOT arguably the greatest. Messi is also not the greatest.
Davido is greater than wizkid, so is Rinaldo better and greater than Messi
@Frankcis_ wrote; Is wizkid “purely gifted” tho? Joro x54 is not “purely gifted”. In terms of lyrics, both of them are the same.
@Adetutu22222 replied; Oh really? Why don’t you enter a studio and say the same joro 100 times, let’s see the outcome. Yen yen yen….
