My dad used to work at a fast-food restaurant in US before he became wealthy – Davido reveals (video)

Nigerian singer Davido has shared a personal story with his fans and followers on social media.

The father of three has revealed his billionaire father, Adedeji Adeleke, worked as a manager at Burger King, a fast-food restaurant in the US before he became wealthy.

The singer disclosed this while speaking about his biggest inspiration during a performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk, a video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music in Washington.

“The inspiration for me has been my father, a Nigerian-American like me. He studied in the States. I studied there myself. I went to HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), a predominantly black college,” he said.

“My dad went to one as well. He used to work at Burger King. He was a manager at Burger King.”

 

This is coming days after the singer paid a visit to the old apartment in the United States where he and his cousins, Sina Rambo and B-Red lived 12 years ago.

According to him, they actually had no money and support from anyone at that time.

“Damn I went to my old apartments where I used to live 12 years ago with Sina and B red!!! As hard as it is to believe .. we had no money .. no support just us and a dream !! 12 years later ! We millions in ! Road to a billion !!! We thank God !! Never stop believing,” he wrote.
