Meanwhile, Nigerian Afrobeats superstar, Davido Adeleke professionally known as Davido has revealed that his father, Adedeji Adeleke built him the best studio in the country

The DMW boss said his colleagues, D’Banj, Wizkid and other artistes used to come to his world class studio.

Davido revealed that the studio used to be only open every two weeks because he was still in school at the time.

According to the ‘Holy Ground’ crooner he was not recording in it then because he started out with learning sound engineering.

He explained that other artistes were the ones using it to record music, and what he did was to give suggestions which was when people told him that he was better than other singers.

Davido said they advised him to tryout music, but he declined the idea because he was a student. He added that they insisted and he gave it a shot, and the first song he released was a hit.

He said, “He [my dad] built me the best studio in Nigeria. I mean, everybody used to come there: Wizkid, D’banj. “I have the best studio but the studio is only open every two weeks because n*gga is in school. So, I come every two weeks and everybody would be coming over.

“Funny enough, that time I wasn’t even recording my music. Like I said, I was learning [sound] engineering. So, I had people come over to the studio and be recording. I always give people ideas how to sing hooks. And my boys started realising that, bro you are better than all these people.

“I was like, no, I’m still in school. They insisted that I should try. And I said, okay. The first song I recorded, blows up.”
