I talk on phone with 13 presidents – Davido


In a show of his status and the kind of people he rolls with, popular music star, Davido says he has the phone numbers of 13 presidents from across the world, who pick up whenever he places a call across to them.

Speaking in a chat with MTV Base, the MOBO Award winner stated that his father was not happy with his career path till he had to prove his worth, adding that he had now reached a level where he could converse with no fewer than 13 presidents.

The leader of the 30billion gang, who made this revelation while speaking about the success of his earliest songs, said, “When I released the song ‘Back then’, I did not know that it was going to be that big. Then I went back to school and the love that I was shown was overwhelming, let alone the way girls began to treat me. That one song with the video made my father realise that I had the talent. And then, I did the song, ‘Dami Duro’.

“The song became so big and I remember that the President at the time called my father to talk about me and the song. Even during my father’s business meetings with his friends, they would mention my name and the song. Before long, I started travelling and doing shows around the world. Now I have the numbers of about 13 presidents on my phone and if I call them, they would answer the call. Then the award came and it set me on another level.”
