David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, Nigerian singer and record label owner, has revealed that Mavin Records manager, Don Jazzy and D’banj motivated him to go into music.

In a recent Instagram Live chat with Grammy Museum, the star who is also a father of three kids made that clear.

According to him, “Coming from Atlanta and just hanging around them inspired him.

“I remember seeing them with Jay-Z and Kanye West in a room and honestly, they had a lot to do with me wanting to do music even though my father has also been a mentor.”

I had become like a one-man-band in the early stage of my career. I made the first single beat and recorded the song myself in equal measure.

“I mixed and mastered Dami Duro myself. When I was getting bigger, I could no longer do everything myself.

“Now, I have producers and songwriters who I work with. I now believe in collective efforts.

“The business side of everything is important. Music is just about 30 or 40 per cent,” he said.
