When Davido returned to Nigeria in 2011, his music career at that time was put   aside after he agreed to honor his father by enrolling at Babcock University.Meanwhile in July 2015, Davido earned a music degree from Babcock after his father paid the university to erect a music department for an inaugural class of one.

The musician has been having a lot of endorsement deals since April 2012. One of the endorsement in 2013 was with Guinness Nigeria,where it was reported that Davido performed with other artists such as P Square, Wizkid,D'banj,Burna Boy,Olamide,Tiw Savage and many others as part of the deal at Guinness World of More Concert.


Ever since his music career started,the musician has been having controversial issues, in December 2015, it was reported that Davido and his baby's mother,
Sophia Momodu, were embrangled  in a fight over the custody of their daughter
Imade Adeleke. A newspaper reported that it all started after Sophia and her
family filed a petition against Davido and his family for alleged child trafficking.

   In a petition sent to the Director-General of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, Davido and his family were accused of
