Famous Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has revealed that his billionaire father, Adedeji Adeleke, used to work as a manager at Burger King in the United States before he became wealthy.
Davido disclosed this while speaking about his biggest inspiration during a performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk, a video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music in Washington. The singer said that his father had to go through certain life hurdles to be where he is today.
Davido said, “The inspiration for me has been my father, a Nigerian-American like me. He studied in the States. I studied there myself. I went to HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), a predominantly black college. My dad used to work at Burger King. He was a manager at Burger King. I know a lot of people won’t believe this but he didn’t just become wealthy all of a sudden. He too went through certain life hurdles to be where he is today.”
