David Adeleke, aka Davido, a superstar of Nigerian afrobeats music, has related how his billionaire father, Chief Adedeji Adeleke, once arrested him, show promoters, and audience members at an event where he was scheduled to perform.
He claimed that everyone present was detained at the gathering because he skipped school to pursue music against his father’s wishes.
The ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ singer claimed that the incident took place early in his career.
On Friday night, he made this claim while appearing for the first time in the UK on Channel4’s The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan.
“I come from a family where education, education, and business are valued highly…My choice to pursue music was like a beef at the time.
Any program he [my father] hear I’m performing at, he sends the police. He arrests the fans, promoters. He has a camera watching where I go to.”
The singer performed his hit song ‘Unavailable’ on The lateish Show.
