Mr. Deji as a well known disciplinary who is the co founder and partner of the Adeleke University in Eden had no choice a part from ensuring his son Davido has cleared his university level.
Mr. Deji being from the rich background where his dad had the dream of making Nigeria proud by fulfilling his dream of planning the Banana Island come true, he dint stop pursuing his own dream and leave a legacy just like dad. He has partnered with few music labels, constructed churches, and also being the chief Executive Officer of Pacific Limited a company that deals with example steel products, logistics, warehouse and energy.
He is a man who doesn’t like public attention; he tried working things out between his son Davido and Sophia (baby mama) to Davido’s daughter. Even after rumors were all over about him vying for the governor he just came out and said he has never thought of being a politician. He loves church and that’s why he has used multi millions naira some of his money to build churches for his Seventh Day Adventist Church.
Mr. Daji is one of the richest men in Nigeria and also Africa. He is also a man who loves his family and supports them like he supports his son Davido by giving his jet to him just to go perform for his concerts. This proves why the award winner davido says his dad is his role model. Mr. Deji’s net worth, biography and his Private jet is all around here. Know about him through us.
