October 4, (THEWILL) – Music superstar, David Adeleke, aka Davido, has revealed that he didn’t formally inform his father that he was an aspiring artiste. The ‘If’ crooner made this revelation while speaking in an interview on Famouz Timez.
He talked about how he was scared to tell his billionaire father, Deji Adeleke about his passion for music.
According to the Afrobeat artiste, his family has laid down rules regarding career and work, such that whenever each of them graduates from the University, his father either employs them in one of his companies or gets the person a job in a firm owned by one of his rich friends.
He said that he was the first person to actually branch out of the family tradition and go into entertainment, even though his dad would not have approved.
The 29-year-old also revealed that it was from other people his father got to know that he was doing music at the time.
Davido said he had a full studio in his room which his dad was unaware of where he often recorded songs when the businessman was away at work.
He explained further that he usually makes sure to finish recording before he comes back from work and goes about his daily activities as though he did nothing.
