“My family didn’t take me seriously when I started music” – Davido
Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, professionally known as Davido, has revealed that his family did not initially take him seriously when he ventured into music.
The 30BG boss disclosed this in a recent interview with Jazzy’s World TV.
According to him, one of the reasons they didn’t take him seriously was because he was the youngest of the family.
He said his family only started supporting him after he began making waves in the Nigerian music industry.
“When I wanted to do music, imagine being the last born of the family. I’m like, yo I want to do music. I’m going to be a superstar one day.
“Imagine trying to influence everybody in a family [where] you are the last born. Nobody took me serious. You feel me?
“But as I got older, they looked and they saw that, yo he is really good in this. And then finally, they let me do what I want to do. But being the last born, I love it. If I had a challenge, my older siblings, they will be at my back for real.” He said.
