Davido revealed his initial challenges in pursuing his music career.
Davido‘s journey to stardom happened by him
going against his dad, Deji Adeleke‘s wishes
prompting the billionaire businessman to
threaten the singer’s manager, Kamal.
In a new interview with Ebro Darden of Hot 97 in
New York, days after his performance at One
Africa Music Fest, Davido revealed his initial
challenges in pursuing his music career.
‘I was hanging out with D’banj at the time, he had
that Kanye deal. I now told my Dad that I was
trying to stay, and he was like ‘What? My friend
you better go back to school,’ he recalled.
‘I called my roommate, and told him ‘Imma do
this no more. If my Dad calls, tell him you don’t
know where I’m at.
‘When I left, my family was looking for me for like
six months. They sent a letter to D’banj house,
they sent s letter to Psquare house, they sent
letters to everybody’s house. My Dad was calling
the school, and they were telling him; ‘He wasn’t
even here for the past semester, he left..’ It was
like the whole Nigeria knew who I was before I
even dropped a single. Kamal that is my manager
now, used to be Don Jazzy’s assistant. My Dad
started calling him and said ‘if I see you guys with
my son, all of you are getting arrested.’
