Once upon a time, Davido’s Father threatened to arrest his colleagues, specifically, Don Jazzy’s PA, Kamal over his disappearance from home and school.

 In a recent interview with Ebro Darden of New York top radio station, Hot 97, Davido, the Omobaba Olowo crooner talked about how it all happened. Why disappeared from home for over six months to chase music, and convince his family to support him.

“When I left, my family was looking for me for like 6 months. They sent letter to D’banj house, they sent letter to Psquare house, they sent letters to everybody’s house. My Dad was calling school, and they were telling him; ‘He wasn’t even here for the past semester, he left..” It was like the whole Nigeria knew who I was before I even dropped a single. Kamal that is my manager now, used to be Don Jazzy’s assistant. My Dad started calling him and said “if I see you guys with my son, all of you are getting arrested.”

The first record I put out first was ‘Back When’. I was in London at the time, I dropped this record, I went home, and they were like ‘Yo, come on, it’s time. D’banj, Wande Coal and everybody was telling me that your record was good. I was 16, so I was the youngest at the time. I went back home fresh from America. I go into the club that night, and they were playing my song, I went crazy.” he recalled.
