According to the ‘Fem’ crooner, his dad on several occasions sent cops to arrest him and disrupt shows he was billed to perform at.

When asked why his dad was doing that, Davido said, “So, I gotta go back to school.”

“He kept on doing it. Then there was one time. This is where I knew that ‘Oh I’m lit!’. They (the police) came and got me. Then I’m in the cell and the dude that got the keys his phone rings, and it’s my song! I said ‘that’s me’. He said ‘you’re Davido?’. I said ‘yes!’. And he let me go.”
