hey say the biggest legacy a parent can leave for his/her children is education. Every parent no matter the
circumstances strives hard to
live up to that statement and so
is Nigerian billionaire businessman
Deji Adeleke who seems hell bent
on seeing one of his sons David ‘Davido’ Adeleke attending and
graduating from University like
every other child. The last two years have been a
handful for Davido – he didn’t
just make a very successful
debut in the Nigerian music scene
but accelerated to the A-list
spot, something that has taken other A-listers years to achieve.
He’s released a debut album
with chart topping singles, won
international awards and
performed in and out of the
country, what else could he ask for? Well, Davido isn’t doing the
asking, his father is; more like
demanding. NET sources say Mr
Adeleke wants his son to enrol in
a University and graduate with a
degree. And to make that happen, he
has reportedly built an entire
department at Babcock
University (where he is currently
a provost) for Creative Arts
which will have Davido and his manager Kamal as the only
students for now. We’re told he has also bought a
dedicated car which take the
boys to and from school as they
work to combine academic
commitments with show business. Davido and Kamal (who had to go
back to school because of
Davido’s father’s insistence)
are using the opportunity to
bond, a source tells us. It is also likely his celebrity
cousins Bayo ‘B.Red’ and Sina
‘Sinarambo’ Adeleke will be
joining them soon. ‘Davido’s dad believes a lot in
his music and HKN. He thinks
David can take it to the next
level but he also feels education
is compulsory foundation for his
son’, a source to the family tells us. We learn he has been helping to
put up necessary structures
that’ll ensure the boys don’t
mess things up. For starters, Mr
Adeleke insists on meeting with
everyone working with his son. And the young pop star has so
far been co-operative. Davido’s mother Vera, an
educationist herself was until her
death in 2003, a lecturer at
Babcock University.
