In a recent and unusual turn of events, celebrated Nigerian singer Davido, known for his extravagant lifestyle and generous acts, made headlines during his visit to Ghana. Arriving on December 28, 2023, Davido, accompanied by his 30BG crew, headed straight to a club in Accra to party. The night took an unexpected turn when the singer began spraying bundles of money in the club, a gesture that typically incites a frenzy among onlookers. However, in a surprising twist, the Ghanaians present in the club did not rush for the money, leaving netizens stunned and sparking a wave of reactions online.
The incident, captured in a viral video shared by Ghanaian blogger GH Hyper, showed Davido and his crew enjoying their time in the club, ordering expensive drinks and partying hard. The video’s highlight, Davido throwing money, usually a common sight in clubs where he parties, did not have the expected effect. Instead of the usual scramble for cash, the club-goers in Ghana appeared uninterested, leading to a range of reactions from internet users. Comments ranged from admiration for the Ghanaian club-goers’ restraint to humorous speculations about the nature of the money thrown.
This incident has sparked a conversation about the cultural differences in reactions to such displays of wealth. While in Nigeria, such acts often lead to a scramble for money; the Ghanaians’ response was notably different, highlighting a contrast in attitudes towards money and celebrity culture.
In addition to this unusual club incident, Davido has been in the news for his generous acts, including gifting a lucky lady KSh 370,000 after being amused by a video she posted on social media. His support for fellow artists, like sharing the cover of Mayorkun’s new EP, further cements his reputation as a supportive figure in the music industry.
Davido’s experience in Ghana serves as a reminder of the diverse reactions and cultural attitudes towards celebrities and their actions. It underscores the uniqueness of each audience and how they respond to the flamboyant displays of wealth and generosity.
