Twenty-Seven years ago today, November 21, a child was born in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S to a Nigerian family of Adedeji Adeleke. His parents named him David. He must have had his dreams as a child then but probably, he didn’t dream of being a Davido, a Nigerian award-winning musician who will be celebrated home and abroad.
Though from a very wealthy background in all standards but so far, he has worked harder than most less privileged people in the world. He grew from a child who wanted to take pictures with stars to a super megastar after dropping his first single “Dami Duro” in 2011.
After Dami Duro
From that point till date, he has been unstoppable. Despite the stiff competition from his contemporaries like fellow pop stars, Wizkid and Burna Boy, he always finds a way to hold his own.
As a hardworking young man that likes to make money, he is never shy of spending it as much as possible. He is indeed a fun guy who doesn’t only spend on himself alone but on as many as possible. Ask his then HKN gang, to now 30 Billion gang and the DMW label family, and you will hear his glowing testimonies.
In the midst of the entertainment, fun and all that comes with being a young star, he found love in a University mate, Chioma who went ahead to give him his first son, Ifeanyi.
By the way, there is a viral video of Davido that showed him when he was a child, innocent and meek. He was filmed with other men walking on the street having an interesting conversation with them and pointing at a car. The video really captured Davido as a child of promise who was destined to be who he is today and even more.
Check out the video below:

And I said to David Na Me you go sign Next. Davido said: Pray Pray pray. Even without signing me you have done more than so much for me in less than a year. HBD KING DAVID.”
