Speaking on the latest episode of the +44 Amazon Music podcast, the superstar musician revealed how he almost abandoned his education due to his burgeoning music career.

According to Davido, his father had to enter into a deal with him, promising to build him a world-class studio and fund his music videos, in exchange for his commitment to attending classes and completing his degree.

“He [my dad] said if I go to school, he has a piece of land not far; he will build me a studio. But I should go to school from Mondays to Fridays and on weekends, work in the studio. It was a world-class studio. He will give me money to shoot some videos,” Davido said.

The “Fem” crooner also disclosed that he took a break from music until he graduated from university with a second-class degree. The bribe from his father, as well as his own desire to prove himself academically, motivated him to persevere and complete his studies.
