By Hannah Nathan, Warri
A legal battle looms as the afro beats superstar David Adeleke Alias, Davido has said he would not refund the $94,600 paid to him to display in the Warri show.
The Former president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, had accused the Afrobeats singer Davido of failing to perform at an event despite being paid $94,600.
It was further gathered that during the nineteenth version of “Warri Once More,” a personal luxury plane for $18,000 was reserved for the ‘Inaccessible Singer’ yet he won’t ever appear.
But Davido posted on his Instagram on Sunday, arguing that he notified the event organisers in advance that he wouldn’t be able to attend. Nevertheless, they persisted in promoting the show using his name.
The Afrobeats superstar in a throwback said he would not refund any money because his name was used to advertise the event.
His statement, “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 long 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 properly, bigger and better!”
Meanwhile, Amaju had also warned that he would teach the singer a lesson, emphasising that Davido should not let his growing fame lead to excessive pride, especially since he is not a bigger artiste than Burna Boy, who had ties to Warri.
