The celebrated Nigerian artist David Adeleke, best known by his stage as Davido, has listed the ten things that are must in his life.

The Grammy-nominated singer claimed that because he values the things so highly, he always carries them with him wherever he travels.
Here are the ten things Davido cannot do without:
The megastar said his love for popcorn dates back to the movie nights he had with cousins as a child.
“I love popcorn. When we were young, we used to have like movie nights, especially in my cousin’s house. So my aunty, aunty Christine used to make this bomb a** popcorn,” he said.
“She used to switch it up, sometimes it could be cinnamon, she even made a maggi popcorn. It was so dope.”

“Everybody knows what my prayer point is now. Every day I pray, I have been nominated for three Grammys. So everyone knows what I am praying for now”.
He also named the Martell drink as one of his essentials. He said he usually takes two shots of the drink to “ease the stress of the road”.
