Davido Faces Controversy Over Alleged No-Show After Receiving Payment

Ex-NFF Boss Pinnick Accuses Singer of Breach of Contract; Davido Responds

Nigerian music superstar, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, is currently at the heart of a significant dispute. Amaju Pinnick, the former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has leveled accusations against the singer, claiming he failed to honor a performance agreement despite receiving a substantial payment.

Pinnick alleges that the NFF had compensated Davido with a sum of $94,600 for a scheduled performance. Additionally, a private jet, valued at $18,000, was arranged for the artist’s travel needs. However, much to the chagrin of the organizers and awaiting fans, Davido reportedly did not make an appearance at the event.

The news has rapidly gained traction, with the “FEM” hitmaker not staying silent on the matter. Responding to the allegations via social media, Davido shared a cryptic message, suggesting there might be more to the story than meets the eye. His statement, “Throwing stones but you live in a glass house,” hints at potential underlying tensions between the two parties.

The situation has further been intensified with revelations about the significant expenses incurred in anticipation of Davido’s performance, highlighting the depth of the organizers’ disappointment.

Interestingly, Pinnick’s comments weren’t solely directed at Davido. He also made veiled remarks about another Nigerian music icon, Burna Boy, though the specifics of that aspect remain shrouded in mystery.

This unfolding drama has the entertainment industry buzzing with discussions, speculations, and debates about artists’ responsibilities and what event organizers can expect in return. The outcome of this controversy is eagerly awaited by fans and industry insiders alike, as they look forward to understanding the full scope of the disagreement and any potential repercussions.
