Davido, the afrobeat maestro has explained why his father over protected him, immediately after his mummy moved to the great beyond
In a recent interview with REAL 92.3 FM Davido said he feels his dad made a promise to his mum to take care of him.
The singer added that he believes the over-protection is out of fear.
“I come from a family where there is oh ‘go to school and after you go work for dad’. I am from a Christian, business family. My dad didn’t know I was doing music till like two years after I started recording. He sees it and he was like ‘How sad’?” he said.

I look up to him. He is like everything to me. I didn’t want to always disappoint him. All my older brothers and sisters have graduated with a Master’s degree. I was expected to do the same.
“I think it was out of fear. He loved me so much. My mum passed on when I was really young and till today I always feel like he made a promise to mum like ‘take care of my baby’. That type. He is always over-protective.
