INTERVIEW: Davido recounts how his father used his power to sabotage his music career after breached agreement

Award-winning superstar Davido has recounted how his father, Adedeji Adeleke once stopped him from succeeding in the music industry using his influence.

In an interview with American TV host, Kelly Clarkson, Davido revealed that his father wanted him to be a graduate before delving into music.

The new dad mentioned how insistent his father was about his education. They came to an understanding that he would spend two weeks in school every month and dedicate the other two weeks to his music career.

However, his music career flourished, and his increasing fame became a disruption in his classes, forcing him to resort to attending part-time courses.

He mentioned that his father was unhappy with his rising career, which was overshadowing his studies, leading him to manipulate circumstances to cancel his shows.

In the long run, he eventually completed his education, and now his father is his greatest supporter.

He said:

“I come from a big family that is really big on education. I’m a first-generation entertainer, in my whole life of bloodline.

He was really adamant about me finishing school. One, because I didn’t make it. Two, because you know what I’m saying? He didn’t mind me doing music, but he was really bent on me, you know finishing school. He owns a University, so again.

So you can imagine and my mom was a college professor.

I think they were also scared because whatever you want your kids to do, you want them to be successful in it. In our business, it’s not that easy to be successful.

So you know, we kind of made a deal, where I go to school for like two weeks out of the month and the other two weeks, I can be in the studio and do what I want.

It got to a point where I was a distraction to the class when my music was getting bigger. After a while, I got to do part-time class-type stuff. I was getting too big and he got mad.

I’m talking about how he sees a billboard of me doing a show, the show gets cancelled before I get there. He has that type of power.

So it got to a point where everyone was scared to book me. But eventually, I did finish school and now he is my biggest fan”.
