Stop Comparing Your Family To Davido’s family….
By Charles Awuzie
Davido is a product of generational wealth created by his great grand mother Madam Adeboyin – a wealthy Iyalode.
Davido’s great grand mother was an Iyalode – head of a Yoruba market. That’s the same title Ahmed Tinubu’s mother held which was transferred to Tinubu’s daughter. This title is a definition of wealth.
Davido’s great grand mother gave birth to Davido’s grand father Ayoola Adeleke who stood on the wealth of his mother to become a 1st Republic senator in Nigeria. Davido’s grand father was rich – very rich and gave his children, Davido’s father and his uncles the best education in America etc.
The story of Davido’s father raising the Osun State Governor elect is incorrect because they all inherited ANCESTRAL wealth.
Davido’s father and uncle’s are half Igbo and half Yoruba. This explains why Davido’s best friends are Igbos because his ancestral maternal home is Enugu. Davido’s father and uncles were born and raised in Enugu by an Igbo mother.
The Adeleke family is a dynasty with ancestral wealth. The difference between such families and yours is that while they inherited wealth, you inherited poverty. So comparing their family with yours is unfair to yourself.
Poverty is the reason why families fight. When resources are not enough, people become selfish. But where there’s enough wealth, there’s no reason for unnecessary fights. This is why you see people like Elon Musk get huge support from his family when he starts new companies but your own family members would tear you down when you try to build something new. Elon Musk comes from wealth and nobody in his entire family is poor and thus needs nothing from him.
Be kind to yourself….
Understand why you are struggling – the whole blame is not on you – your ancestors share part of the blame.
If you come from a poor lineage, BE KIND TO YOURSELF. YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO ACHIEVE SOMETHING NOBODY IN YOUR ENTIRE LINEAGE HAS EVER ACHIEVED OR EVEN ATTEMPTED. YOU ARE LIVING IN HOMES YOUR ANCESTORS NEVER ATTEMPTED TO LIVE IN. YOU ARE DRIVING CARS YOUR ANCESTORS NEVER DREAMT OF DRIVING. HONEY, YOU ARE BREAKING RECORDS. BE PROUD OF YOURSELF.

Celebrate Davido but don’t envy him. Your journey is unique and you are doing well so far.
