Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, David Adeleke, known by his stage name, Davido has opened up on his reasons for going back to school despite the struggle of making it in the music industry.
Recall that the singer dropped out of Oakwood University in the United States, returned to Nigerian, and pursued his music career.
A few years later, he put the music on hold and returned to finish his University Education at Babcock University, Nigeria. He finally graduated in 2015 and proceeded to the mandatory National Youth Service.
Speaking with Shaderoom in a recent interview, Davido made it clear that Education was never his thing as music has been his first love. But he had to go back to school to make his father proud.
Here is what he said;
“Education was not my thing so after I left America for Nigeria it was something I just went back to school to make Dad proud.
“It was something I owed my dad and late mum so I had to take it important but Music has always been my first love
“I didn’t drop out, I just left America to continue my school in Nigeria and joggle it with Music at the time”.
