I want people to see that side of me and also see that I still kept faith. It’s very hard. A lot of people that those things happen to would never want to believe in God ever.
“When me and my wife found out we were having twins, we were shaking and it was in the same month my son passed last year October. My wife gave birth this year October. It’s crazy.”

most of my life with my father.

“I was paying for videos, I was paying for accommodation, I was paying for welfare. I was just happy seeing that my success could rub off on others. That was money to me,” Davido added.
