Nigerian afrobeats megastar Davido recounted how he ran away from his father’s $60 million house in Lagos to live in his friend’s studio.
Davido, born David Adeleke to a Nigerian billionaire businessman Dr Deji Adeleke, stated this in a recent interview with Real 92.3 FM, Atlanta.
He noted that unlike how many think he didn’t have to struggle to become successful in the music industry, he did struggle to be who he is today.
Davido remembered that he once ran away from their million-dollar mansion in Lagos to stay with his friend who owned a recording studio.
Davido said, “People don’t really know about my past like the early part of my career. What was difficult for me was coming from a very wealthy background.

Everybody just felt like, ‘Nah, his dad…This is money’. I dropped several records before they had to agree like, ‘Okay, he is actually good.’
You know people love the grass to grace story. Everybody loves the story of ‘I was down bad, now I’m up.’ I had never been really down bad. But I was passionate [about music].
We had a $60million-house in Nigeria that I ran away from; I was sleeping in my friend’s studio, hot. They were looking at me wild like ‘Bro, you better go home.’ I said, ‘I’m not going home.”
