Ent: I trained my nephew, Davido to become a music star –Ademola Adeleke

Senator representing Osun West in the National Assembly, Ademola Adeleke, has said that he trained his nephew, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido to become a music star.


Adeleke said, “Yes, I did train him a few skills which by the Grace of God are helping him today in his career. Our family is very proud of him.”

The lawmaker who replaced his late elder brother, Isiaka Adeleke in the senate, said he dances because he feels happy and that the dance doesn’t in any ways affect his thinking.

When he was queried why dancing is all he does at every point in time, Adeleke said, “Don’t you also dance in church and when you have joyous occasions?

“Well, I dance because I am happy and grateful to God. I am not a pretentious person but the dancing aspect is just a minor aspect of me. I am a deep thinker and solution- finder.

“For example, in one of my recent visits to one of the local governments in my senatorial district, I came in contact with a group of retirees who said they had always wanted to meet with me because I always exude joy and confidence.

“These were senior citizens who needed encouragement in their difficult situation occasioned by the failure of the APC government in Osun State.

“Of course, I spent quality time with them and shared some of the resources God has given to me to make them even happier. That to me is the essence of life
