Davido was guest at breakfast show hosted by CharlamangeThagod where he got to talk about how music started for him and how his dad sent policemen to arrest his manager, girlfriend and show promoter because he wasnt in support of the career initially.
According to Davido, it wasn’t an easy road for him initially as his dad wanted him to finish school and join the family business.
“I remember the first show, I was upstairs in the green room, and was about to come down, I looked down and there were like 50 policemen. Back then they took my ex, they arrested her, they took my road manager, they arrested the promoter.
“I remember I went through the back fence, was running. I picked up the phone and my dad was like, if you don’t come to the police station, all your friends are going to jail. I got to the police station and the policeman’s phone starts ringing and it was my song playing. He let us go at some point,” he said.
Davido went on to share with the OAPs how his father became sold into his music career after he saw the massive appreciation he was getting not just from fans but presidents, billionaires(father’s friends).
In case you missed it, we had earlier published the story of how Davido’s father later succumbed to the fact that his son was destined to do music. According to different accounts, Davido forced his dad to buy out the owners of the first record label he was signed into as he remained adamant that music was his path.
Tosin Ashafa, son of former Lagos lawmaker, Senator Gbenga Ashafa, has said he signed Nigerian singer Davido to his first official music contract. Ashafa made the revelation while reacting to a tweet by African-American social activist Beverly Gooden.
