Dr Deji Adeleke (Davido’s Father): Net Worth

Anytime Davido says he’s an OBO, he means he’s an “Omo Baba Olowo” which is translated in English as “The Son of a Wealthy Man”. It definitely raises the question: Who is Davido’s father that he hypes him so much? And just how rich could this man be for the song that brought Davido to limelight to still be about him?” Well, let’s climb Davido’s family tree just a little higher to his father.

Dr Deji Adeleke, also called Elder Deji Adeleke was born on March 6, 1957 in Enugu. He’s a Yoruba man from Ede in Osun State; a state in the South-western part of Nigeria. He’s a father, a prolific businessman, and an investor. He used to be married to Dr Vero Adeleke who passed away in the year 2003. The couple’s union produced two children, a son – David “Davido” Adeleke (The superstar musician) and a daughter – Sharon.
