David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, a Nigerian artist, has said that having a blue passport has made traveling abroad simpler for him.
He claimed that because he holds an American passport, he always has an advantage when some of his band mates are having trouble getting their visas approved.
The musician, who was born in Atlanta, said that the American passport was worth more than $1,000,000.00.
In a recent interview with Omega, he made this claim.
Davido, on the other hand, emphasized how proud he was to be Nigerian.
“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,” he said.
