The Nigerian afrobeats superstar David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, has shared a story about how his billionaire father, Chief Adedeji Adeleke, once detained him, show promoters, and fans who were present at an event where he was scheduled to perform.

Against his father’s wishes, he claimed that his father had arrested everyone at the event because he had skipped school to pursue music.

The incident, according to the singer of “Omo Baba Olowo,” occurred early in his career.

He stated this on Friday night, while making his Channel 4 debut on The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan.

Davido said,

“I come from a family where it’s like, education, education, business…Overtime [my decision to do music] was like a beef.

“Any show he [my dad] hear I’m performing at, he sends the police. He arrests the fans, promoters. He has a camera watching where I go to.”
