Davido revealed that he had a whole music studio in his room and his father was not aware. According to him, he made sure to record songs during the day when his dad was out at work and when he came back, go about his normal business and never mention music.

He said:

“I come from a family where it’s no entertainment. It’s straight up, you go to school, you get your degree, either my dad gets you a job with one of his rich friends or you go work for him. So I was the first one to really branch out and do entertainment. Funny enough, I couldn’t even tell him, It was that bad. He didn't want that for me. It was something he had to find out through other people. I had a whole studio in my room and he didn’t know. I will make sure I record. When he goes to work, I’m in the studio. Before he comes back from work, I am not even talking about music.”
