'My Father Was Modest, I Didn't Know We Were Rich Till I Turned 13' - Davido Reveals

Son of one of the richest men in Nigeria, Davido, has claimed that he did not know his father’s financial status until he was 13 years of age.

Despite admitting that his father, Adedeji Adeleke, was always busy with his business conglomerates, Davido said he had no hint of the billions of Naira resting in his account.

He made the disclosure while praising his father for his modesty and humility in a latest interview on Nigeria’s Earn Your Leisure.

Back then when he was just 11 years, Davido remembers his father drove a Honda car, while his mother was an owner of a Toyota truck.

It was until they moved to a plush, well-decorated multiple-bedroom home in Lagos Island that he was exposed to the reality.

Fast forward till this day, the Internationally recognised singer has been living in full glory, with many ‘connections’ at his disposal.

He said that is how he landed the moniker Omo Baba Olowo (OBO), to wit son of a rich man.

Davido’s father is a business magnate and founder and President of Adeleke University. He is also the Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Holdings Limited.

Our Family Is Not In Support Of His Actions – Yul Edochie’s Elder Brother

The elder brother of Yul Edochie has revealed that their family is not in support of the actor’s decision to marry a second wife and father a child with her.

According to Uche Edochie, the family advised him not to go through with his plans, but he ignored them.

“Have you ever tried controlling an adult when it comes to relationships? Good luck with that. Yul is an adult who feels marrying a second woman is the best way to own up to his mistakes and make things right,” he wrote in a lengthy post on Instagram.

Uche Edochie stated that it is unfortunate his first wife, May, has been roped into this.

She did not agree to a polygamous marriage with Yul Edochie when they tied the knot, he wrote, adding that the current situation is not fair to her.

“So I feel for Mary…My family are not in support. This is not what we do and we are trying our best to console Mary. What else can we do?” he quizzed.

This comes days after Yul Edochie surprised many fans and followers when he revealed on Instagram, that he had married another woman and they share a son.

Meanwhile, Uche Edochie believes that his brother does not deserve the condemnation he is facing now explaining that if a Muslim had married a new wife, the world would not have made a whiff about it.

He stated that “maybe Yul should become a Muslim and shut this circus down. It is said that life is what happens when we are making other plans.”

Uche also added that people should also not be too quick to judge the actor, especially since women throw themselves at actors all the time it gets “suffocating”.

“If the average person walks in Yul’s shoes for one year, they will get five or more women pregnant. So don’t be quick to judge if you have not lived that life. Most people will do worse,” he added.
