He is currently one of the leading artists in Nigeria, and he has a very large fan base across the continent.

Davido was actually born in Atlanta, Georgia.

His father Adeleke is a popular Nigerian business tycoon, while his late mother Vero Adeleke was a University lecturer.

Davido is the second son of his father, and also the youngest amongst five children.


As a kid, Davido attended the British International School in Lagos.
