Nigerian superstar singer Davido has disclosed that his father bribed him to return to the university.
The musician made the statement in a recent interview, where he recalled the early days of his fledging music career.
He said he initially left school and even ran away from home, but he was eventually forced to return to complete his education when his father made him a juicy deal.
The deal was that if he attended school from Mondays to Fridays, his father would build him a world-class studio and provide him with money to shoot music videos on weekends.
“My dad is just big on education. The first place I came to when I ran from home was London. From there I came back to Nigeria and my dad wanted me to go to school ask so I was like ‘What is in it for me?’.
“He said if I go to school, he has a land not far; he will build me a studio. But I should go to school from Mondays to Fridays and on weekends, work in the studio during the weekend. It was a world-class studio. He will give me money to shoot some videos.”
In another news, Davido has disclosed his once cordial relationship with his colleague, Burna Boy is now very fragile.
He said they were on good terms but they “don’t really talk” to each other. Davido recently featured on Ebro in the Morning Show on Hot 97FM, New York, USA.
Speaking on unity among Afrobeats artists, the Omo Baba Olowo crooner said, “Afrobeats [artists] we are in unity. I spoke to Burna [Boy]. He called me. He calls me as well but we’ve not really spoken like that.
