Davido to perform free at Warri concert

As part of the agreement reached, Davido is said to have agreed to perform free at the "2024 Warri Again concert."

This is the origin of the entire issue. Davido's lackadaisical behaviour and refusal to attend the "Warri Again" concert in 2023 led to both public figures dragging themselves to court.

Legit.ng recalls reporting when Amaju Pinnick took to his Instagram page to call out Davido for not attending the concert last year despite getting paid upfront.

Pinnick revealed that his show-promoting company, Brownhill Investment Limited, paid Davido $94,000. He also shared that his company chartered a private jet for the singer, which cost $18,000.

Davido vows not to refund Pinnick's $94k

The Unavailable crooner stated on his X page that he would not remain silent on the topic and that nobody could stop him from playing in Warri.
