David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, is an Afrobeats artist from Nigeria. He has said that he prays before each and every performance.
The CEO of DMW made his comments public in an article for Forbes, in which he discussed the most recent edition of Forbes’ Afrobeats All-Star: Pioneering The New Global Sound.
According to the singer of “FEM,” his crew is aware that he never performs on stage without first praying to God and entrusting the concert to his care.
Davido has said that he gained a great deal of knowledge from his father, Mr. Adedeji Adeleke, especially with reference to his conversion to Christianity and his decision to lead an unassuming life.
The music executive said; “I learned so much from being around my dad, watching him in the office, hearing him on the phone, seeing how he handled life. He’s very humble, principled and a strong Christian. Before I step on any stage, my team knows not to mess with my prayers.”
He went on to say that since the expectation in his family was for him to go to school, get his degree, and then work for his father, he originally concealed his music profession from his family.
