DAVIDO: The Luxury Lifestyle Of A Private Jet Owner By Benjamin Njoku

When David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly called Davido released his first hit single, “Back When”in 2011, no one was surprised that he would some day end up becoming one of the biggest music stars around. Today, the musical superstar has not only earned a reputation for having the biggest ‘ego’ in the continent and beyond, but also, for being the most controversial, yet unstoppable singer from this part of the world. Davido has released back to back hits that confirmed he’s ‘unstoppable.’ He’s also a show stopper any day, and many people see him as the true future of hip pop music in Africa.


Like it or leave it, the ‘Áye’ singer has proved beyond every reasonable doubt that he understands the secrets of making good music, and he’s not leaving anything to chance. Rewind back to when he released his debut song,’Back When’, Davido has not slowed down in his quest to conquer the world with his music just as he has not stayed away from controversy.
To him, controversy, which is associated with fame has become his second nature and the sensational singer is enjoying every bit of it while it lasts. At best, he has developed thick skin as far as scandals are concerned. From 2012, when a picture of the pop star and a hooker in bed went viral on social media, David has forever been drawn into controversy.
When his fans thought that the mess would

never be repeated, another photo surfaced online with yet another hooker. It has been controversy till date. Indeed, apart from what happened in 2016, after the sensational singer got into a nasty public fight with his baby mama, Sophia over the custody of their daughter, one controversy that Davido would not forget in a hurry was being linked to the death of his friend, Tagbo Umieke on October 3, 2017, an accusation that forced the singer to release the CCTV recording that exonerated him from the crime.
He also lost other two of his friends, Olugbemiga ‘DJ Olu’ Abiodun and Chime Amaechi to the cold hands of death in one week. Davido was also involved in other controversies that almost ruined his musical career but each time, he managed to wriggle himself out of such controversies. Recall the fight one of his aides had with security personnel at the Murtala Mohummed International Airport, Ikeja, and the bawl the singer had with South African actress, Boity, who reportedly accused the pop star of making sexual advances at her after his 30 Billion concert in Zimbabwe.

But beyond his controversies, Davido remains one Nigerian singer you cannot ignore. He has continued to up his game, with every hit single he released. After releasing “Back When” which became an instant hit, Davido followed it up with another hit single, “Dami Duro”in 2011. Since then, it has been back to back hits, as if he’s yet to give his best. When his fans thought ‘Aye’ would be his best song, the very talented singer returned with ‘Skelewu’, which ruled the airwaves across the continent, followed by ‘Overseas’and ‘Globe.’ But his ’30 Billion’ which dominated the Nigerian music space throughout the greater part of last year, remains one of Davido’s greatest hits. The 30 Billion tour of America and Europe also was an indication of how big Davido has become on the world stage.
