Popular Nigerian Afro-Beats singer, David Adedeji Adeleke, known for short as Davido, has stated that he isn’t bothered by the critics & backlashes he has received due to him flaunting his family’s wealth in a country that’s battling high poverty levels.
The singer’s father, Adedeji Adeleke Snr, owns a business conglomerate and a private university.
Also recall that, Davido recently shared a video of his father’s newly acquired private jet & his second, landing at a Nigerian airport.
Davido stated that, his public displays of wealth are meant to inspire people & also show the world that Africans are living large.
Here was what the singer wrote;
“We’re not here to rub it in anybody’s face, we’re here to show motivation. Many kids write to me and tell me that I’m the reason they want to finish school, and projects, and become successful.
In America there are people who think we live in huts, sometimes I feel like I want to show them… We’re living the life, we’re going crazy, you feel me?
It has nothing to do with showing off or trying to oppress anybody. They oppress us enough”.
