Nigerian singer, Davido has revealed how he had a serious clash with his father, Adedeji Adeleke over his choice of music over school.
According David, his father went to the extent of trying to stop him from attending his shows and calling the police on him to get him to go back to school.
Davido made this revelation in his interview with US podcast, Purple music.pp
In his words:
“I wasn’t in school. I was facing music full time and over the years, he found out that I wasn’t in school and there was a whole lot of drama. I left school. I went back to the city and then my dad was chasing me with the police.
Yes, they (the police) were coming after me to go back to school. Any show he (my dad) saw me on, on a flier or whatever, he was shutting the show down”.
He however added that he had since settled with his father and he now had a degree.
“I moved back to Nigeria and then, he wanted me to go back to school. Because he was like, ‘ After School, you can go back to do the music and blah blah blah. Just get your degree first’_ which I have gotten. Thanks to God,” he said.
He said his father allowed him to embark on his musical concerts afterwards.
“Then I dropped this song, Dami Duro and the song became so big that even the president was singing it. Even people my dad could not get to, was singing it.”
