When he returned to Nigeria in 2011, his music career was sidelined after he agreed to honour his father by enrolling at Babcock University. In July 2015, Davido earned a music degree from Babcock University after his father paid the university to erect a music department for an inaugural class of just one student.
“I’ve been doing music for like one year but I took it seriously in March 2011. I was formally in a group called KB International in America. It wasn’t working out so I thought I should just do this on my own and that was when I moved back to Nigeria.
“I was around people that were musically inclined. I love music, and why not do something you love and you are happy doing and making money at the same time,” Davido, on his decision to venture into music.
