Davido addresses rumours of no-show after receiving $94,600 payment
Davido has reacted to the reports made by the former NFF president Amaju Pinnick of him not honouring his agreement to perform after being paid 94,600 dollars.
Multiple award-winning singer and performer Davido, in a series of posts on his social media platform, has responded to the allegations made by the former NFF president Amaju Pinnick at the 19th edition of the Warri Again concert held on Friday, October 6, 2023.
During the 19th edition of Warri Again, on Friday, the FIFA Executive Member disclosed that organizers had arranged a $18,000 private jet for Davido, but he ultimately did not make an appearance. Consequently, they had to seek out a replacement artist, Shallipopi.
According to the media outlet Punch Newspaper, Amaju Pinnick had said at the event, “We paid Davido $94,600 on the 6th of April. We paid $18,000 for his plane. If he says he’s a big boy, we will tell him we are bigger than him. I’m not joking. So, while he was playing his games back and forth, we decided to hunt to find another artiste, Shallipopi. You see, when people say they are big, I’m amazed. Is Burna Boy not the biggest artiste in Nigeria today? Burna Boy is half Itsekiri. Burna Boy’s paternal grandmother is Itsekiri. So, he’s bigger than him (Davido). Is there anyone bigger than RMD in the acting industry? Or someone bigger than Ali Baba in the comedy industry? We have stars aplenty in Warri. Nobody is bigger than Warri."
This allegation led to a direct response from Davido, who took to his social media platform X, today to share them. Here are some of his reactions below:
