Nigerian musician, Davido who’s real is David Adeleke, has revealed that his father Adedeji Adeleke lived a simple life despite being financially endowed.
According to Davido, his father Adedeji Adeleke was so humble that he didn’t know he was rich until he turned 13 and he shared this in a recent interview.
He stated that he never had a close relationship with his father because of his work habits but till now he still behaves normally and is also modest in his spending’s.
He said his father always drove a Honda car which made it harder to believe that he’s a billionaire until they moved to their new house. Davido says he only got to realize that he had a rich family when they moved into their new home.
“Even till date, he is still so humble with the way he spends and goes about his business. The way he handles his business is still amazing to me,” he said on Instagram.
I remember growing up till I was like 11, I wasn’t close to my dad because it was all about work work work. I remember him coming home late every day. I didn’t know what he was doing. I didn’t know we were rich till probably I was like 13 because he lived so normal.
He has a Civic Honda Accord and a driver, my mom had a Toyota or something, and I didn’t know until we moved to the new house. So we get to the new house, I will never forget and I’m like oh really,” Davido revealed.
