Nigerian singer Davido has recounted when his father and billionaire Adedeji Adeleke used to work at a fast-food restaurant in the United States of America.
The music star made this known during his live performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk, a video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music in Washington.
“The inspiration for me has been my father, a Nigerian-American like me. He studied in the States. I studied there myself. I went to HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), a predominantly black college,” he said.
“My dad went to one as well. He used to work at Burger King. He was a manager at Burger King.”
Recall a few days ago, the music star shared a similar story about being broke before hitting stardom.
“Damn I went to my old apartments where I used to live 12 years ago with Sina and B red!!! As hard as it is to believe .. we had no money .. no support just us and a dream !! 12 years later! We millions in! Road to a billion 💵!!! We thank God !! Never stop believing !!” he wrote.
Davido who is unarguably Nigeria’s biggest music star, schooled briefly at Oakwood College in Alabama which he only stayed for about a year.
After returning to Nigeria, he attended Babcock University where he graduated with a degree in Music.
He rose to prominence in 2011 after he dropped the hit single ‘Dami Duro.’
He has investments in real estate, motorsports, and a very successful music label.
The music star in a recent interview revealed that he plans to venture into politics.
He has three children from three different women.
