Nigerian afrobeats sensation, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has revealed that he favors Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi in the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time) debate due to the attribute of ‘discipline.’
The 30-year-old music artist shared this perspective during an interview on the sidelines of the Professional Footballers Association awards, where he had previously wowed the audience with a medley of his songs during the event’s 50th-anniversary celebration.

When questioned by GOAL about his stance on the ongoing debate regarding the greatest footballer of all time, Ronaldo versus Messi, Davido stated, “Cristiano for me, he is very, very disciplined.
“You know, and to have that kind of success and to be so disciplined at the same time is something I’ve always admired about him.
“I like both of them. But, I personally, I’m a Ronaldo guy.”
Ronaldo recently stated that the rivalry with Messi is over despite the rave it enjoyed among football fans.
He said, “I don’t see things like that; the rivalry is over. It was a healthy rivalry, and the spectators liked it a lot.
He said, “Whoever likes Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t have to hate Messi and vice versa, because they are both very good. We’ve done well; we have changed the history of football, and we’ll keep on doing it. We are respected all over the world; that’s the most important thing.
“He makes his way; I make mine, even if we’re playing outside Europe. From what I’ve seen, he has done well, and so have I. It’s about continuing; the legacy continues.
“I’ve said there’s no rivalry. We’ve shared the stage for 15 years, and we ended up being—I wouldn’t say friends—because I never dined with him. We are professional colleagues, and we respect each other.
