Popular Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, aka Davido, has narrated how he was once on set with veteran American actor, Eddie Murphy, for two days but failed to recognize him.
In 2021, Davido made a cameo in ‘Coming 2 America‘ which had Edward Regan Murphy aka Eddie Murphy as the main character. The Singer performed at the royal wedding in the movie.
While on the latest episode of Drink Champs podcast, co-hosted by N.O.R.E and DJ EFN, Davido said he didn’t recognise the veteran actor while filming with him at Tyler Perry’s studio. In his words:
“You know I was in ‘Coming to America 2’. I’m in the movie. In the part of the wedding, I’m the one performing.
“It was dope to shoot. We shot it at Tyler Perry’s studio.Do you know that I was shooting with Eddie Murphy for two days and I didn’t know he was the one.
He was behind me, I will never forget.
“So, when it was my last shot, I was like, ‘Yo D!’ I looked back and said, ‘Ah! Eddie Murphy!’ Yeah, it was just amazing.”
Hours ago as the world celebrated Father’s Day on Sunday, June 18, 2023, Davido recalled what the day used to be like for him.
Davido spent Father’s Day for the first time without his first son, 3-year-old Ifeanyi Adeleke who drowned at his Banana Island mansion in October, 2022.
Taking to his Instagram stories to lament how difficult the day is for him, Davido thanked God for strength.
He added that some days would be as difficult but he’d pull through. Davido wrote:
“Difficult Father’s Day for me … But I thank God for strength
Some days will be like this
Water full my eyes
but I’ll be alright! forever! ❤️ .”
