Nigerian musician, Davido has disclosed he did not know that he’s from a rich home until he clocked 13.
The award-winning musician stated this while reflecting on his family, childhood, and career in a recent edition of ‘Earn Your Leisure‘, the UK-based podcast.
He said the simplicity of his father, Adedeji Adeleke and his late mother made him see them as average people at the time.
According to him: “Growing up in my younger days till I was 11, I wasn’t really close to my dad because he was all about work. I remember him coming home late every day building something. I didn’t know what he was doing,”
“I didn’t even know we were rich until like 13 because he lived so normally. He was a billionaire driving a Honda. He had a silver Honda Accord, he had a driver, my mum had like a Toyota or so or a Honda truck.
“They lived so modestly until we moved out of the house to the new house. So, we got to the new house and I’m like ‘oh we lit!’.”
He added: Even till date he is still so humble and modest with the way he spends, the way he goes about his business, the way he handles his business is still amazing to me,”
