A former president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has called out singer, Davido, for failing to perform at an event despite being paid $94,600.
The FIFA Executive Member speaking on Friday during the 19th edition of Warri Again, claimed that the organisers also booked a private jet for $18,000 for the ‘Unavailable Crooner’ but that he never showed up.
He said the organisers had to shop for another artiste, Shallipopi as the replacement.
“We paid Davido $94,600 on the 6th of April. We paid $18,000 for his plane.
Pinnick publicly expressed his disappointment about the superstar’s absence from the event on Friday, October 6, in a video that has since gone viral.
While on stage, the well-known individual criticized the singer by highlighting the fact that he had paid a staggering $94,600 for his appearance at the event.
He also highlighted the arrangement of a chartered plane to transport Davido and his entourage to the state, underscoring that this payment had been made as early as April 6th, 2023.
Pinnick bemoaned the fact that Davido had disregarded the city of Warri by going silent after being paid such a sizable money for his performance.
He also compared Davido unfavorably to Burna Boy in terms of his prominence in the music business and accused him of having an overinflated ego.
Pinnick continued by saying that Buzzing Rapper Shallipopi ended up taking his spot as the main attraction.
