Nigerian Artist and father of two, David Adeleke aka Davido, has revealed that he has phone numbers of 13 presidents.

He also disclosed that he was once arrested by his Billionaire father for doing music.

Davido, born in Atlanta, US, told newsmen in an interview that his father was not impressed when he left the US where he was studying Engineering to return to Lagos to pursue career in music.

“My dad didn’t like me doing music! If he saw my face on a billboard, he’d arrest everybody at that show!

“But when I made the song ‘Dami Duro’ [2011], it became the biggest track in Africa; it’s saying: ‘I’m the son of a rich man, you can’t stop me, and people love me.’

“It now feels good for dad to see that music can take me this far.

“When I released the song ‘Back then’, I did not know that it was going to be that big. Then I went back to school and the love that I was shown was overwhelming, let alone the way girls began to treat me. That one song with the video made my father realize that I had the talent. And then, I did the song, ‘Dami Duro’.

“The song became so big and I remember that the President at the time called my father to talk about me and the song. Even during my father’s business meetings with his friends, they would mention my name and the song. Before long, I started traveling and doing shows around the world. Now I have the numbers of about 13 presidents on my phone and if I call them, they would answer the call. Then the award came and it set me on another level.”.
