- Singer Davido has managed to beam a huge spotlight on his wealthy family over the years
- The 30 BG crooner either includes them in lyrics of his songs or posts them on social media
- Legit.ng has compiled a list of some members of the wealthy Adeleke family
Nigerian singer David Adeleke aka Davido has no doubt been a big representative of his influential family.
Years ago when he emerged in the music industry, a young Davido wouldn’t stop singing about his wealthy family, with particular attention to his billionaire father, Adedeji Adeleke.
In fact, in his 2012 hit single, Dami Duro, the singer included a Yoruba chorus in which he declared himself as the son of a wealthy man.
The lyrics go:
"Ema dami duro dami duro yeah.
"Emi omo babalowo olowo babalowo lowo."
With such a strong declaration on a music record, fans became curious and many wanted to know about the young kid who was confident enough to brag about his father’s wealth on a song.
Interestingly, unlike other celebrities who were somewhat ‘hush-hush’ about their humble beginnings, Davido fed the curiosity of Nigerians. With the help of Google, many quickly discovered his father and other members of his family.
The singer also made it easy for fans by occasionally posting members of the Adeleke family on his social media pages.
Over the years, just as fans have grown familiar with him, many have also developed some level of familiarity with his people.
Legit.ng has compiled a list of some of the singer's cousins, uncles, siblings among other family members.
