Afrobeats star David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has explained why he failed to perform at a show organised by former President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick in Warri.
Amaju in a trending video had accused Davido of not showing up at his event in Warri, Delta State, despite allegedly receiving over $94,600 (approximately N72 million).
The artiste also known as OBO took Instagram story on Sunday, Davido to respond to the allegations saying, that he told the event organisers in advance that he wouldn’t be able to make it to the show, but they continued promoting the show using his name as lead act.
He said, “To my lovely fans in Warri that spent their hard-earned money to come out apologies that you had to experience this. I was not going to be physically able to make it and this had been communicated to ‘them’ for a longgggg while now I mean MONTHS ago but for reasons best known to them, they continued to promote the show using my name. It’s a shame. But especially for my fans out there, don’t worry, you know I gotta bring Timeless to Delta State. We will do it proper, bigger and better!
Amaju Pinnick had recently criticised Davido for failing to perform at this year’s Warri Again festival despite claims of being paid $94,600 and the organizers arranging a private jet for him for $18,000. Pinnick slammed Davido saying he is not bigger than Burna Boy even as he praised Warri born entertainers present like RMD and veteran comedian Ali Baba.
