Nigerian musician David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, has revealed why, early in his musical career, his father, Adedeji Adeleke, used his power to cancel a number of his concerts.
Due to his growing prominence in the Nigerian music industry, Davido, who recently made an appearance on Kelly Clarkson’s show, revealed to host Kelly Clarkson that his father had numerous gigs canceled.
Davido stated, “I come from a big family that is big on education,” in the interview that was published on Saturday. For all my life, I have been an entertainer descended from the first generation.
He was determined that I complete my education. First, since I was unable to make it, Secondly, since you understand what I’m saying, He was fine with my performing music, but he insisted that I complete my education. “As you may imagine, he runs a university, and my mother was a professor at a university.
They were probably afraid because, as parents, you want the best for your children in whatever they do. Success in our business is not something that comes easily.
We came to an agreement whereby I would spend two weeks of each month at school, and the remaining two weeks would be free to spend however I pleased in the studio. “My music got louder to the point that I was disturbing the class.
I eventually got to work on classes on a part-time basis. He was upset because I was growing too large. “I’m referring to the fact that he sees a poster featuring me performing, but the performance is canceled before I arrive.
That kind of power is his. “So everyone became afraid to book me at that point. However, I did eventually complete my education, and he is now my biggest admirer.
