Davido attended the British International School before he moved to the USA to study Business Administration at Oakwood University, Alabama. Because of his love for music, his grades suffered, so he dropped out and relocated to London where he honed his music skills. He returned to Nigeria in 2011, and his father insisted he returned to school. They reached a compromise when the senior Adeleke funded the creation of a Music Department at Babcock University, and Davido became the inaugural (part-time) student. He graduated with a Second Class Upper in 2015.
