Dr. Deji Adeleke, Davido’s father, was born on 6th March 1957. He is a rich businessman and is among Nigeria’s wealthiest Yoruba men today.
His late wife, Dr. Vero Adeleke (Mother of Davido), passed away in 2003. Through her he had two children; a son called David, and a daughter called Sharon.
His first male child, who is now the country’s third-richest singer, is making headlines in Nigeria’s music industry. Davido’s father is a Christian, disciplinary and philanthropist.
Adeleke did one such charity work in setting up a church called the “Seventh Day Adventist Church” which was widely assumed to cost a fortune in Naira.
He also supported the musical career of his son, but as a disciplinarian, without graduating with a B.Sc degree, he did not permit Davido to leave the university. He also constructed a hall at Babcock University, from which the Davido school graduated.
Dr. Deji Adeleke currently serves as the Pro-Chancellor and co-founder of Adeleke University in Ede, Osun State. His assets and firms, most notably Pacific Holdings Limited, have interests in different areas like oil and gas, real estate, e.t.c. He is the direct younger brother of previous Osun state governor Isiaka Adeleke.
It is real that money is running in their family because they have super rich people in the Adeleke family. Dr Deji Adeleke, for his part, is a billionaire with an actual net worth of $700 million as Forbes estimates.
Besides being just one of Nigeria’s most successful entrepreneurs today, he is considered to be the wealthiest man in the state of Osun. His father, Chief Adebayo Adeleke, is said to have drawn up the master plan for Banana Island in Lagos that has drawn many international investors to this day.
So whenever you hear Davido say in his songs “OBO”, it signifies “Omo Baba Olowo” which giving the English translation denotes “The Son of a Rich Man”.
