Davido: Good Boy Gone Bad


An impeccable source close to the Adeleke family has said Davido’s lifestyle wouldn’t have been this complicated if it were not for some family challenges which were not nipped in the bud before it went out of hand.

Our source, a staff in the employ of the Billionaire, Businessman, who disclosed this to My Backyard Story on the heel of the death of some members of his HKN gangs under controversial circumstances, said the self-proclaimed ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ (OBO), though pampered didn’t indulge in use of controlled substances and alcoholism, until after his dad married his estranged wife, Teju.

In his words, “The ‘Aye’ singer’s misfortune began after his dad, married madam Teju. At first things worked well for them for a while, but became turbulent after sometime, with Madam sowing the seed of discord between Chief (Adeleke) and his Children.

“At a point the situation got out of hand and because the Adelekes didn’t handle it well, it resulted in Davido and his siblings-all the children from Chief’s first wife and the singer’s late mother, Dr. Veronica, being driven away from the house.

“It was after then that the ‘Skelewu’ crooner started hanging out with bad friends, because he didn’t enjoy any parental guidance within that period.”
When My Backyard Story requested he authenticated his story, he said “It was Davido’s father who told us himself, during the reunion get together he organised following the divorce of his last wife. In fact, Chief cried literally as he said shared this with all of us present at the party.

“To appease his children after the reunion, he even asked them all to go around any part of Lagos and pick houses of their choice and he will buy it for them.”

Report has it that during the messy divorce proceeding between Mr. Adeleke and his ex-wife, one reason the former Bank owner put forward for his willingness to dissolve the union was because the lady-Mrs. Teju caused strife between the Chancellor of Adeleke University, Ede, Osun State and his family.

The union was dissolved in November, 2015.
