Though David Adedeji Adeleke popularly known as Davido is a son to well respected Nigerian businessman billionaire, Chief (Dr.) Adedeji Adeleke, yet Davido and his brother Adewale Adeleke, chairman of HKN Music have both decided not to rely on their father’s wealth toward their struggle to be successful in life. The young men had being making music and as well making more money through their music. Very rare from this part of the world to find a billionaire’s kid making music not to talk of good music for that matter. Definitely Davido is a challenge in this category to many others. Coupled with the fact that he had once won a kora Award. But hey……….the award is not about how rich you are, its about the votes you get, good luck to Davido from Nigeria. Africa over to you, make your choice. Do you see the “Aye” singer winning this category?
