DMW boss Davido recently gave his fans a sneak-peek into his family background as he revealed his father had worked at Burger King, a fast-food restaurant in America.

The singer revealed this while speaking of his early inspirations during a performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk, a video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music as part of Black History Month.

Recounting his varsity days, Davido noted that his father had worked a restaurant job before he became wealthy.

“The inspiration for me has been my father, a Nigerian-American like me. He studied in the States. I studied there myself. I went to HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), a predominantly black college. My dad went to one as well. He used to work at Burger King. He was a manager at Burger King”. Davido revealed.

Earlier, the singer had spoken of how his mother passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest.

“I was about 10 to 11 years old when she died. She died on my father’s birthday. I always wish that she should have been alive. I would have bought her a lot of diamonds and houses but she knew that I was going to be great. My mother was from Benin. I think I’m like her; I inherited her agility. She helped so many people to date. I go to some places and people would tell me what my mother did for them. Before my mother died, I was a mummy’s boy because my father was always busy. He was working and always travelling to places like China.” He said.

The Afropop singer had recently recounted the period in his life when he was broke and had no support.

In a post on his Twitter page on Tuesday 23rd February, the award-winning musician took a trip down memory lane when he paid a visit to the old apartment in the United States where he lived 12 years ago. He revealed that “as hard as it is to believe”, he actually had no money and support from anyone at that time.

The “FEM” crooner also expressed his gratitude to God for seeing him through and helping him achieve his dreams of being a millionaire while encouraging his fans to never give up on their aspiration.
