I pray before every stage performance – Davido

Nigerian Afrobeats singer, David Adeleke aka Davido has revealed that he prays before every performance on stage.

The DMW boss opened up in a Forbes article wherein he covered the latest issue of Forbes’ Afrobeats All-Star; Pioneering The New Global Sound.

According to the ”FEM” crooner, his team knows that he does not miss committing his show into the hands of God before mounting the stage.

Davido said he learned a lot from his father, Mr Adedeji Adeleke, particularly with regards to his embrace of Christianity and living a humble life.

The music excutive said; “I learned so much from being around my dad, watching him in the office, hearing him on the phone, seeing how he handled life. He’s very humble, principled and a strong Christian. Before I step on any stage, my team knows not to mess with my prayers.”

He further said he initially hid his music career from his family because the norm was to go to school, graduate and then work for his dad.

The fomer couple have been exchanging words over the past 24 hours and it started with Churchill celebrating his son, King Andre, on his birthday. Tonto bashed him for pretending to care once in a while and being a deadbeat father.

He replied that she was bitter he moved on and accused her of trying to make people believes he was not a good man.

In reaction, the Nollywood star reiterated that he was a deadbeat father who fails to his kids school fees and child support.

Tonto advised the businessman to learn a thing or two about fatherhood from music star, David Adeleke aka Davido.

According to her, Churchill is a big fan of the singer and it would make sense for him to adopt his fatherly nature.

She further challenged the father of her child to prove his claims of being supportive by sharing receipt of any school fees he’s paid.

This should sink, learn to be a man from David. you have always been a big fan of his, adopt his fatherly nature at least to your daughter cause like i said my child will never need nothing from you not even your so called god forsaken name.
