Ace singer-songwriter and music executive, David Adeleke aka Davido, has revealed he clashed with his father, Mr Adedeji Adeleke when he left school for music.
The multiple award-winning musician made the disclosure during an interview with Earn Your Leisure.
Davido recounted how his dad went to the extent of shutting down his shows, and even sent the police after him after discovering he had left school to focus on music.
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”.
Davido further revealed that his 2012 hit song, Dami Duro, was the turning point in his relationship with his dad.
According to the singer, when his dad realized how big his brand had become, they made a deal that allowed him to attend shows when he wasn’t in classes.
“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. After two-three years, I got a degree in business management and music,” he said.
