“ My dad bought me an Audi car and I planned to sell it but the plan fell through. I also sold all the television in my dad’s house, all flat screen TV. I made about 10 racks (10 Thousand dollars) and I left for Nigeria for a show. My dad brought about 50 Army along with about 20 police officers to come and arrest me at my show. I escaped with no shoes on but they arrested my Manager, my friends and my girlfriend at the time. “ – Davido

“It’s Afrobeats At 8 on Ebro in the Morning! Davido came through Hot 97 to hang out with us, play some new music with us, and talk about his come-up, the debate on how his name is pronounced, how African-Americans can connect with Africa, and told us a crazy story on how his father disagreed with his path in music and threw him in jail…only to later accept his success and help him out in the end. “- Hot97
