“LOVE U MOMMY!! !!! I KNOW ITS YOU THAT IS PROTECTING ME!!!!! I KNOW!!!! I LOVE U!! UR SON GALLANT DIE!!!!!!!! RIP!!!”
Veronica Imade Adeleke (1963 – 2003) who died at a young age of 39 in 2003 gave birth to Davido on November 21st, 1992 in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America, even though the Adeleke family was in Nigeria and later moved back to their native country.
The notable thing about her is that she loved music, just like her son. In the 90s, she had a brilliant music career and was owner of a record label. She was also part of a band named “David’s Band.” This was not the only thing she named after her son. She also had a security company, which was called “David’s security”. Her son was really the apple of her eye.
Veronica Adeleke was a lecturer at Babcock University in Osun State. She was very bright, intelligent and loved by all the lecturers and students.
