Economic Hardship Deprived Me Of A University Degree – YBNL Star, Davolee

David Shokoya, popularly known as Davolee, YBNL’s latest signee, has narrated why he was not able to pursue a college degree and rather opted for music.

According to him, the economic hardship as well as the rate of unemployment in Nigeria prevented him from furthering his education.

This was revealed in an exclusive interview with Channels Television’s Entertainment News, where he laid bare his struggles and travails and how he has gradually overcome, especially as his talent caught the attention of the YBNL boss, Olamide.


Shokoya who was born in the Isolo area of Lagos state, revealed that the street life had a huge influence on his music. The artist stated that he realised his talent at a young age and while there was no one to sponsor his university education, so he thought it wise to go into full time music and face the hustle squarely.

Speaking further on how he got the attention of the YBNL music imprint, Shokoya explained that he promoted himself a lot via social media. “I took my Instagram personal then I do freestyles and I tag celebrities as much as possible. So luckily for me, Baddo got into it and messaged me on Instagram”.

In November 2016, the YBNL leader Olamide revealed Davolee had become a member of the team in a video posted online.
