Nigerian superstar singer, David Adeleke aka Davido has revealed how his teacher talked down on him due to his poor grades in school.

Speaking as a guest on Tea with Taymesan podcast, the DMW boss said his teacher told him that he would never amount to anything in life.

Davido also spoke about the loss of three of his close friends to the cold hands of death in 2021.

“We lost TJ, my bodyguard who has been my security for over eleven years. We also lost my photographer Fortune. May his soul rest in peace.2021 has been a crazy year.

May their souls rest in peace. We are carrying their legacy on. We think about them every day. From handling that and still working, still having to do what I have to do, going on tours, or doing the music recording.

Juggling the pandemic and also family matters, 2021 has been a crazy year. We just thank God we are here, we are strong”, he said.

Asked if he has ever had time to pause, reflect, and grief, the DMW boss said:

“Life is fast, I have been doing this continuously since I was sixteen years old. Off course I have had to cry, not even about losing my friends alone. I cry about different situations. It comes and goes.

I cried on my birthday. I know how bad my grades were. In school, I was like the most unlikely to succeed type of student. My French teacher told me I won’t be anything in this life. I wont lie I was a bad kid with good intentions”.
