Afterward, Depay and Davido flaunted the Puma logo on their clothes as ambassadors of the sportswear manufacturing company.
The Nigerian Afrobeat singer then went on to promise that he would one day visit Spain to watch one of Memphis Depay’s games. davido noted that FC Barcelona’s new signing, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was also his brother.
“I will come to Spain and we have to link up because Aubameyang is also my brother and it will be nice to see you guys over there as I am currently in London.”

What are the things Memphis Depay and Davido have in common?
Though Memphis Depay is known across the world as a French footballer who has played for PSV, Manchester United, Lyon, and now FC Barcelona, he has a lot in common with Davido, a renowned Nigerian musician.
Just like Depay, people are willing to pay their hard-earned money to watch Davido. For instance, in 2019, the Nigerian musician sold out the 20,000-sitting capacity O2 Arena in London. In 2022, Davido repeated the same feat days before his concert on March 5. You can pay from £125 to £140 to watch Davido’s show in London.
Aside from that, just like Davido, Memphis Depay is a musician. In 2017, the French footballer released his debut hip-hop freestyle “LA Vibes”.
Afterward, the 28-year-old French footballer continued to prove that his second passion is music when he released his debut album ‘Heavy Stepper’ in 2020.
Aside from music, another thing Davido and Depay have in common is fashion. The 29-year-old Nigerian musician has proven over the years that he is down for a luxurious lifestyle.
His 23 million Instagram followers can never be tired of the glamorous lifestyle the musician always shares with them. Davido loves to dress well, and not just well, very expensively.
A check on Depay’s Instagram page with 13.7 million followers proved the same which means that he and the Nigerian musician are completely on the same boat.
