Davido, in an interview with Ebro Darden of Hot 97 FM, spoke of the time he left school to pursue music and his dad did not take that lightly:
I was hanging out with D’banj at the time, he had that Kanye deal. I now told my Dad that I was trying to stay, and he was like ‘What? My friend you better go back to school. I called my roommate, and told him ‘Imma do this no more. If my Dad calls, tell him you don’t know where I’m at. When I left, my family was looking for me for like six months. They sent a letter to D’banj’s house, they sent letter to Psquare’s house, they sent letters to everybody’s house. My Dad was calling the school, and they were telling him; ‘He wasn’t even here for the past semester, he left…’ It was like the whole Nigeria knew who I was before I even dropped a single. Kamal that is my manager now, used to be Don Jazzy’s assistant. My Dad started calling him and said ‘if I see you guys with my son, all of you are getting arrested.
