Nigerian Afro beats superstar, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, says when he announced his ambition to become a musician, nobody in his family took him seriously.
He said that though he enjoys being the last child in the family, the position came with a price.
The singer said this during a recent interview with Jazzy’s World TV, where he recalled how being the youngest child didn’t make other family members to take him seriously.
He, however, said the attention started coming when his music attracted popularity.
On why he enjoys being the last born, he said his siblings always have his back when he gets into trouble.
Davido said, “When I wanted to do music, imagine being the last born of the family. I’m like, yo I want to do music. I’m going to be a superstar one day.
“Imagine trying to influence everybody in a family [where] you are the last born. Nobody took me serious. You feel me?
“But as I got older, they looked and they saw that, yo he is really good in this. And then finally, they let me do what I want to do. But being the last born, I love it. If I had a challenge, my older siblings, they will be at my back for real.”
