This was noticed during a recent check on his page by LailasNews. Checkout a snapshot of his page below;

Snapshot of Davido’s Instagram page at 9 million follows

Just as you suspected, he is the most followed Nigerian celebrity on the platform.

Star Boy Wizkid trails Davido in terms of follows on the platform and is currently on 6.9 million, while Tiwa Savage is on 6.5 million followers.

It would surely take a lot for Wizkid of Tiwa Savage to take on Davido.

Why I decided to assist Cynthia Morgan - Davido

Recall that Davido used to be the first Nigerian celebrity to rack up Five hundred thousand views for a post on Instagram.

He has now broken that record of his by amassing One million views for a post on Instagram. The post is a video showing him during the video shoot of a song he did with label mate Zlatan Ibile. It shows them doing the new trendy dance Zanku.

Safe to say, Davido is the Nigerian King of Instagram.
