My American passport is worth over $1million – Davido brags

Nigerian music star, David ”Davido” Adeleke says having an American passport has made travelling overseas easier for him.

The US-born artiste stated this during an interview with Omega, adding that his blue passport is worth more than a million dollars.


Davido explained that when some members of his band are having difficulties with getting their visas to fly out for shows abroad, he always has an edge because of his passport.

The ‘Unavailable’ crooner, however, expressed pride in being a Nigerian.

He said; “That part of my life [being born abroad] didn’t come out until I blew up. People thought I live in Nigeria. It was later on in my career that people realised that I did Alabama college and stuff like that.

“It wasn’t like I was introduced as an American artist in Nigeria. I’ve been in the streets back home. The only thing is that I could fly anytime I wanted, like go to America anytime I wanted.

“Till date, I don’t care how much money you’ve got, that blue passport is worth more than a million Dollars.

“For example, we were going to Australia for a tour, to get the structure is so hard because some of my band members were having difficulties in getting the papers just because of their passports. But obviously, it’s kind of easier for me because of the blue passport.”
