Award-winning Nigerian singer, Davido, says he didn’t know his father, Adedeji Adeleke, was rich until he was 13 years old.

Davido disclosed this in an interview with an American-based podcast, Earn Your Leisure, which was published on Wednesday.

The music star disclosed that he never knew of his family’s wealth as a child because his parents lived a modest life.

He said, “I didn’t know he was rich till I was 13 because he lived so normal. I didn’t even know he was a billionaire driving a Honda.

“He had a brand new silver Honda Accord. He had a driver. My mum had a Toyota or so, or a Honda truck or something. So I didn’t know.

“They lived so modestly until we moved out of that house to the new house.”

The music star disclosed that it was when they changed location that it dawned on him that his father was rich.

He continued, “From the new house, that was when I started trying to know what my dad did and got to know that he was into business.”

The singer further disclosed that even presently, he is still amazed at his father’s humility and modesty.

“Till date, he’s still so humble and modest with the way he spends and the way he goes about his business. The way he handles his business is still amazing to me,” Davido added.
