Afrobeat powerhouse Davido has revealed how his teacher predicted he won’t succeed in life owing to his bad grades when he was in school.
The Nigerian star who is one of the most successful artists on the African continent brought this unknown fact to the public domain when he appeared as a guest on Tea with Taymesan podcast.
Davido who lost three of his friends to the cold hands of death in 2021, said:
“We lost TJ, my bodyguard who has been my security for over eleven years. We also lost my photographer Fortune. May his soul rest in peace.2021 has been a crazy year. May their souls rest in peace.
We are carrying their legacy on. We think about them every day. From handling that and still working, still having to do what I have to do, going on tours or doing the music recording. Juggling the pandemic and also family matters, 2021 has been a crazy year.We just thank God we are here, we are strong”.
Asked if he has ever had time to pause, reflect and grief, the DMW boss said:
“Life is fast, I have been doing this continuously since I was sixteen years old. Off course I have had to cry, not even about losing my friends alone. I cry about different situations. It comes and goes. I cried on my birthday.
I know how bad my grades were. In school, I was like the most unlikely to succeed type of student. My French teacher told me I won’t be anything in this life. I won’t lie I was a bad kid with good intentions”.
