“I didn’t know we were rich till I was 13” – Davido

In a statement, David Adedeji Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, a Nigerian-American singer, songwriter, and record producer, said he was unaware of his family’s wealth until he was thirteen.

During an exclusive chat, he shared insights into his upbringing and discussed his father, stating, “All this talk about being rich, my dad is very disciplined. He’s quite different; you can tell he’s a very disciplined man.”

“I didn’t know we had money till I was 13. Despite being a billionaire, my dad drove a Honda Accord, I’m telling you.”

Davido continued to recount how he discovered his father‘s wealth, saying, “Let me tell you how I found out. Something happened in Nigeria, in the area where we lived. There was a mistake, like a bomb blast, and many houses got destroyed.”

“Our first house, from my birth until around age 11, was a big compound with a bungalow. When that incident occurred, we had to leave immediately because the house got so messed up.”
