They call him 'omo baba olowo' which literally means 'the son of a rich man'. David 'Davido' Adeleke is truly a son of billionaire businessman, Deji Adeleke, who is also the Chancellor of a university in Nigeria.
But after getting into limelight in 2011 through music, Davido has reportedly moved from a mess to another. Just few months ago, he was reported to have been in a mess with a groupie, who posted online her picture with the MTN Pulse brand ambassador while in bed with his cloth off.
Just few weeks ago, Davido reportedly brought dancers to his album launch, who danced erotically in the presence of Aliko Dangote and other muslim faithfuls who may have been observing the Islamic fast, Ramadan. At the concert, some parents reportedly took their children out when dancers of this teenage music artiste, Davido may have become unbearable to them.
On July 1, 2012, Davido reportedly beat up a girl believed to be one of his girlfriends after she discovered that Davido was with one of her friends in a hotel room. For Mr Femi Ajibola, who was the cab driver that brought the beaten Davido's 'girlfriend' to the hotel, the reason why he reportedly got a serious beating from Davido and his four bouncers was because he wanted to help the helpless 'Davido's girlfriend'.
According to reports, he got his car keys seized and his 100,000 Naira got missing. While the police tried to invite Davido to their station, he reportedly bragged and asked if they knew the son of who he was? 'That's 'omo baba olowo' speaking.
Though, the police have retrieved the car keys to Mr Femi, but his 100,000 is yet to be produced. Reports also said he has not gotten any penny from Davido for his hospital treatment from the injuries he received from 'Davido's beating'.
Davido's publicist, Valerie Obaze has reportedly denied that her client was involved in such violent act.
Some of the many questions that have come up from this scenario are what enfrontry does Davido has to seize a citizen's car keys? Does being an 'omo baba olowo' a ticket to acting like a god? What prompted MTN in picking Davido as their brand ambassador? Does MTN represents the messes surrounding Davido's young career?
