Afrobeat singer, Davido shared this picture above earlier this week on his social media page as he hit 1million followers on Instagram, the first Nigerian celeb to do so. This is what he had to say. ‘I WAS 14 HERE.. HAD TO BEG @DPRINCEMAVINE AND @WANDECOAL FOR A PIC!! Lamo (Laughs) LIFE!.
Davido purposely shared this picture to let his fans know how it all started. Thus to instill some hope, courage and motivation to people who look up to him. For young Davido, it didn’t all start like we might think. The 1 million followers, fame and everything in-between, obviously hard work and motivation played a big role in his life.
Eight years ago, when Davido was just 14 years old, he had to beg music star Wande Coal and D’Prince for a picture. In the picture, we could see that Davido was so starstruck and very excited to meet his ideals. Today, David Adedeji Adeleke (Davido )is a proud father and successful artist, thus bigger than the stars he looked up to.
Hard work and persistence is the mother of invention indeed.
