In a short span, Davido sold 121.88 million $DAVIDO tokens for 2,791 SOL ($474.4K). He also sent 20 million $DAVIDO tokens to a burn address, “dead1111…1111”, effectively removing them from circulation. This move left him with 61.12 million $DAVIDO tokens, currently valued at $207K.

While the rapid financial gain might seem impressive, it has sparked backlash within the crypto community. Critics argue that Davido’s actions could be seen as manipulating the market for personal gain, raising ethical concerns about the transparency and integrity of such celebrity-endorsed crypto projects. 

The controversy highlights the potential pitfalls of celebrity involvement in the crypto space, where the lines between promotion and exploitation can quickly blur. As the market continues to grow and attract high-profile figures, the need for responsible and transparent practices becomes increasingly critical to maintain trust and stability within the community. 

Davido’s case serves as a reminder for investors to exercise caution and conduct thorough research before diving into celebrity-backed cryptocurrencies.
