Warri Again Show: Davido Slams Ex-NFF President Amaju Pinnick

Nigerian music megastar, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido, has reacted to a claim by Amaju Pinnick, former President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), that he failed to honour a contract after collecting $94,000.

GbaramatuVoice had reported how Amaju Pinnick, while speaking at the 19th edition of Warri Again, expressed displeasure that Davido failed to show up.

But responding to the accusations, Davido said the show promoters knew he was not coming around for the event. Despite this, the singer said they promoted the show with his photos.

“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,” he wrote on his Instagram handle, Sunday.

He, however, apologised to “my lovely fans in Warri that spent their hard-earned money to come out. Apologies that you had to experience this.

“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!” Pinnick added.

Amaju had in his comment called on Davido to not allow fame to make him proud, claiming he is not Nigeria’s biggest artiste.
