Davido was captured in a recent article published on Forbes speaking fondly of his billionaire father Adedeji Adeleke.
The musician, who is also a proud father of three children, claimed that he inherited his father’s religious demeanour, and as a result, takes prayer very seriously.
He claims that before going on stage to perform during major concerts, he and his crew pray. On the same wavelength, the music executive and prolific hitmaker claimed that despite his wealth, his father is modest.
Davido claimed to have gained a lot of knowledge from his father, Mr Adedeji Adeleke, especially in regard to his adoption of Christianity and pursuit of a life of humility.
The music executive said; “I learned so much from being around my dad, watching him in the office, hearing him on the phone, seeing how he handled life. He’s very humble, principled and a strong Christian. Before I step on any stage, my team knows not to mess with my prayers.”
Relatedly, a Nigerian lady who begged in earnest to have the privilege of being Davido’s personal pilot has updated tweeps on what life offered her.
She begged the musician on Twitter in 2021 to hire her as his personal pilot so she could take him on round-the-world trips in his private plane.
The woman, who went by the handle @fummzzy on the microblogging platform, disclosed that she was 24 years old and that she possessed a commercial pilot’s license.
She quoted a tweet from OBO at the airport and wrote; “Dear @davido
”I am a 24 year old female, who holds a Commercial Pilot License in airplanes. All I want is to be hired as your pilot and fly that jet that is behind you.
Thank you in advance for the privilege to speak further with you about this opportunity.God bless you!”
In 2023, she is now a pilot who specializes in flying celebrities on private aircraft. According to @fummzzy, Davido’s jet is usually parked close to the one she mans at the hanger and occasionally she goes to have conversations with the singer’s pilots.
She wrote; “Lord! My tweet to Davido about his jet. It so funny fast forward to present date. I currently fly PJs. His jet is parked same hanger with the jet I fly. I walk into his plane, gist with his pilots on his plane because we are all colleagues in the Challenger fleet. Life!😅✨”
