My mum died when I was 11, I’m the last born of 5 kids. So from a young age, I know what I wanted to do. I fought to do this music. I come from a family where it is school, when you finish school, go and work for popsy so music is something I had to fight for and work hard for. To become Davido wasn’t anything like say popsy help me.
