Davido fumes over being related to his father’s wealth

When he stormed the music scene few years ago, David Adeleke, better known as Davido prided himself as ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ which literally means ‘son of a rich man’ in Yoruba language.

This appellation became what the son of a Nigerian billionaire businessman was known with and the talented young singer even went further to release an album with the name as the titled.

About three years after his grand entry into the scene, Davido can confidently rely on his music to live large without any support from his rich dad. Apart from being a brand ambassador of a telecoms giant, MTN, which we learnt was worth millions of naira, Davido is one of the hottest artistes in Africa, who is believed to earn several millions from shows.

However, the artiste might now be tired of people still linking his wealth to his father’s riches as he expressed his frustration over the issue.

Speaking recently on a show, which was monitored by us, Davido said, “I find it annoying when people relate me with my father’s money. I can rely on my money and spend my money on anything I feel like acquiring. I have worked hard for myself and I am working for my kids to also be ‘Omo Baba Olowo.”
