Top Nigerian singer, David Adeleke also known as Davido has revealed that he almost sold his billionaire father, Mr Adedeji Adeleke’s Rolls Royce to finance his music career.
Davido made the revelation during an interview on ABtalks.
He recounted how he dropped out of school in the US to focus on his passion against his father’s wishes.
He said his dad was not willing to support him financially, so he sold the Television sets and furniture after breaking into his Atlanta home in Georgia, USA.
He said that he informed his dad that he wanted to move back to Nigeria but the man did not approve so he took matters into his own hands.
The singer explained that he dropped out for about a year before his father found out that he was no longer in school.
Davido said the last thing he almost sold was Mr Adeleke’s Rolls Royce and the reason was because he felt that since the man did not want to fund his music, he decided to raise the money through other ‘crazy’ means.
He said; “So I blew up, remember I said that I told him I wanted to move back, but he disagreed. I ended up dropping out, he found out that I wasn’t in school for like a year.
“broke into his house in Atlanta, sold all the TVs, old his furniture. I almost sold his Rolls Royce, because I was like ‘yeah I want to do this music’ but he didn’t want me to, so I was like ‘you know what?’ I’m just about that crazy.”
Also, in a different interview with Anas Bukhash, Davido disclosed that he has only been disappointed in himself once, and that was with the way he handled his rift with his wife, Chioma before they got married.
“When we had a little rift, I felt like I could have done better definitely because she is an amazing person. I think that’s the only time I messed up but I fixed it”, he said.
