Senator Ademola Adeleke, who represents Osun West in the National Assembly, also noted that he is a deep thinker. According to him, he also trained his nephew, David Adeleke, a.k.a Davido to become a music star.

Asked why he dances in almost every occasion, Adeleke said, “Don’t you also dance in church and when you have joyous occasions?

“Well, I dance because I am happy and grateful to God. I am not a pretentious person but the dancing aspect is just a minor aspect of me. I am a deep thinker and solution- finder.

“For example, in one of my recent visits to one of the local governments in my senatorial district, I came in contact with a group of retirees who said they had always wanted to meet with me because I always exude joy and confidence.


“These were senior citizens who needed encouragement in their difficult situation occasioned by the failure of the APC government in Osun State.

“Of course, I spent quality time with them and shared some of the resources God has given to me to make them even happier. That to me is the essence of life

On training Davido he added, “Yes, I did train him a few skills which by the Grace of God are helping him today in his career. Our family is very proud of him.”

Before this recent interview, Senator Ademola Adeleke had disclosed that he always loved to dance since he was a young man. Growing up and adding weight has not been able to stop him.


He went further to say that his children got their skills from him. He revealed that he trained his children BRed and Shina  Rambo including his nephew Davido on how to dance
