Nigerian pop star, Davido shocked many of his fans when he said that while growing up, he never knew he was born into affluence.
The singer made this known on a recent podcast, ‘Earn your leisure’.
In his words: “My dad is humble and modest with the way he spends and goes about his business. Basically the way he handles his business. It’s still amazing to me. I remember growing up from my younger days till I was eleven, I remember my dad coming home late every day, building something. I didn’t know what he was doing, I didn’t even know he was rich. I didn’t know my dad was rich till I was 13.He lived so normal, I didn’t know he was a billionaire. I remember he had a brand new silver Honda Accord, he had a driver. My parents lived so modest, until they moved out of the house to a new house”.
Speaking further, the award winning music star noted that it was difficult for him to plan the next phase of his career when he became prominent.
“When you first blow up, there is a phase you think everything is happening so fast and you don’t have time to plan, sit back and know what you really want to do.For years I was my own artistes , going on tours back to back”.
