Nigerian music star Davido launched the 30BG gang in 2017 after a line from his hit 2019 single ‘IF‘ became catchy. The line from the song – ‘30 billion for the account o’ got trending upon its release and inspired a lot of social media buzz and memes.
According to some reports, the singer’s father had actually won a contract worth N30 billion naira at the time he sang the song.
The rapid acceptance of the catchy line made Davido and his DMW crew create the 30BG brand. It became a group that consisted of Davido, his DMW crew, and just about anyone that has contributed to his success story.
The popularity of the 30BG brand grew among the singer’s fans following his controversial fight with Nigerian music star, Wizkid, and also Burna Boy. It became an additional medium to showcase the singer’s affluence, success, pride and achievements, and also a movement for his die-hard fans.
