Meet Davido’s Mother, Dr. Veronica Hailey Imade Who Died At 39

Davido named his two daughters, Aurora Imade Adeleke (9 years old) and Hailey Veronica Adeleke (7 years old), after his late mother, Dr. Veronica Hailey Imade Adeleke. A Nigerian singer, doctor, and lecturer at Babcock University, she was a multifaceted woman who tragically passed away at the age of 39.

She gave birth to him on November 21st, 1992 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The Adeleke family would later move back to their native country. 

The late mother of the popular Nigerian superstar was a music lover, just like her son. In the 90s, she had a brilliant music career and owned a record label. She was also part of a band named “David’s Band.” 

Aside from that, she also had a security company named after her son, which was called “David’s security”. 

Veronica Imade met the father of Davido, the influential billionaire Adedeji Adeleke in the 80s. They fell in love and got married. Together, Veronica and Adedeji had two children: David and Sharon.

Her husband, Mr. Adeleke was a donor at Babcock University, where she was a lecturer. At the university, people loved and respected her for who she was – a very bright and loving woman. 

On the 6th of March, 2003, an unfortunate incident occurred which left everyone in shock. 

Davido’s beautiful mother passed away and was coincidentally the 40th birthday of her husband Adedeji Adeleke. She was only 39 years old. 

According to Urbanlife, she went to the church in the morning for service and when she came back, she locked herself in a room. A few hours later, she was found dead in her apartment. 

The funeral of Veronica Adeleke was held soon after her tragic passing, and her band, “David’s Band”, played there.

It is not surprising that her son decided to pursue a career in music and became successful at it
