Davido Slams Pinnick Over ‘No Show’ Accusations


Davido Pinnick

Davido, a singer, made a sly jab at Amaju Pinnick, the former president of the Nigerian Football Federation, after the football official accused him of declining to appear at a gathering in Warri, Delta State, despite being paid more than $94,600.

The singer was criticised by Pinnick on Friday on the 19th installment of “Warri Again,” who said the promoters had also reserved a private plane for the “Unavailable Crooner” for $18,000 but that he had never arrived.

He claimed that in order to fill the spot, the planners had to look elsewhere and choose Shallipopi.

“We paid Davido $94,600 on the 6th of April. We paid $18,000 for his plane.

“If he says he’s a big boy, we will tell him we are bigger than him.

“I’m not joking. So, while he was playing his games back and forth, we decided to hunt to find another artiste, Shallipopi.

“You see, when people say they are big, I’m amazed. Is Burna Boy not the biggest artiste in Nigeria today? Burna Boy is half Itsekiri. Burna Boy’s paternal grandmother is Itsekiri. So, he’s bigger than him (Davido).

“Is there anyone bigger than RMD in the acting industry? Or someone bigger than Ali Baba in the comedy industry?

“We have stars aplenty in Warri. Nobody is bigger than Warri,” he said.

However, the Afrobeats star in what looked like a response posted on X on Saturday, bragged that nobody could stop him from performing anywhere in Nigeria, assuring his fans in Warri that he would be in their city soon.

“Nobody can stop me from performing anywhere in Nigeria… Warri I will see you soon,” he wrote.

He also posted a picture of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, logo with the caption; “Make I no talk.”
