t’s not news to anyone that Nigerian singer David Adeleke, known as Davido, comes from a family with a billionaire father. Its progenitor, Adedeji Adeleke is a business mogul, founder and president of a large private university called Adeleke in Nigeria.
As his siblings joined the family business, Davido took a different direction: music.
In a recent interview with Grammy Museum, he explained why he decided to get into music. When asked why he hasn’t joined the family business, he revealed that he doesn’t focus on a lot of things, including his school.
He explained that his decision to take up music was not influenced by rebellion but by passion.
“It wasn’t like I wanted to go rebel and do my own thing. It wasn’t really that. I was just in love with music. I couldn’t concentrate on anything else. I neglected school, I neglected a lot of other things that I had to concentrate on. It was just music, music. I had to fight for it. This was what I was meant to be, ”he said.
Davido is today one of the best-known artists in Nigeria and even Africa. He has to his credit several national and international awards. His latest album “A Good Time”, released recently, reached 1 billion streams last July.
“A Good Time” is the second studio album by Nigerian singer Davido. It was released on November 22, 2019 via Davido Music Worldwide, RCA Records and Sony Music.
