NYSC is a one-year national programme organized by the Federal Government to make graduates participate in community development and also foster interethnic relations.

The graduate of Babcock University posted pictures of himself before he headed to camp.

David Adedeji Adeleke or Davido was born on November 21, 1992. Now he uses the stage name Davido and is known better as an American-born Nigerian recording artist, record producer, and performer. His music is not only popular in the USA, but in his motherland Nigeria as well. The singer and producer were born in Atlanta, Georgia. His father came to the USA from Nigeria and became a business magnate. His mother was a lecturer in the local university.


There is not a lot of information about Davido’s childhood or his first steps into the music career. However, we know that prior to starting his career, Davido went to the university. He chose a major connected with business and studied Business Administration at Oakwood University. Eventually, he returned to Nigeria in 2011, and at that point, he started his music career for real. But due to father’s pressure, he still had to enroll in university, but this time to one in Nigeria. In July 2015, Davido earned a Music degree from Babcock University and successfully graduated.


Fulfilling one of the major prerequisites for the completion of his programme, the talented artiste wrote a thesis on the topic: ‘Challenges of a Live performance of Afro-pop artists in Nigeria’.

In 2011, Davido started to work on his debut studio album – Omo Baba Olowo. His first musical recording “Back When” was released on May 7, 2011. He not only recorded the song but produced them as well. The album earned a big attention from the public.
