A number of talented and big named celebrities in Nigeria have their own story of the struggle before their rise to fame.
For musicians, the narrative is usually similar as they mostly speak on how the found their calling after being part of the choir at a young age.
Well, the claim to fame story is quite different for one of the top music stars in the country, Davido Adeleke.
In an Instagram live video with talent manager, Ubi Franklin, Davido recounted how he conned his father and skipped school for a whole year while he was abroad all for music.
African parents are known to be quite strict, especially when they are rich and have a reputation to protect. That seemed to be the case with Davido’s father who wanted to make sure his son went to school, graduate and settle down working with the family.
Well, Davido obviously had other interesting plans. According to the music star, after his first year at school, he discovered his passion for music and decided to focus on that instead.
Davido said that he used all the money his father sent him at the time to buy studio equipment and that he was recording songs for people on his campus.
The singer added that he eventually told his father to allow him continue his studies in Nigeria so that he can do music alongside. His father disagreed and made sure he flew back abroad that very night.
After getting on the plane, Davido discovered that he was on the same flight as Wande Coal who was also getting set to travel because DBanj and DonJazzy had a show.
Davido decided to ditch his father’s plans and follow Wande instead. His father eventually called the school to find out the whereabouts of his son when he was told that David had not been in school for a whole year.
