Davido sued for concert breach

The organizers of the annual Warri Again Concert have filed a 2. billion naira lawsuit against popular artist Davido. Brownhill Investments Company Limited, owned by former NFF president Amaju Pinnick, brought the suit before the Delta State High Court. They allege Davido breached their agreement to perform at the concert.

Seeking Substantial Damages

Represented by Kelechi Onwuegbuchulem, Brownhill Investments seeks 2 billion naira in general damages from Davido and his label Davido Music Worldwide Limited. They also request 150 million naira in legal fees and 30 million naira for filing costs.

Public Apology Demanded

The organizers want the court to order Davido to apologize publicly on social media and in newspapers for four days. The apology would address Brownhill Investments and concert attendees.

The Agreed Performance

In early 2023, Davido approached Pinnick at the airport about performing. Pinnick hesitated but agreed to 70 million naira. On April 6th, they received 94,500 dollars as payment, acknowledged by Davido.

A No-Show on Show Day

Brownhill Investments promoted Davido heavily. Yet on October 6th, the concert date, Davido failed to arrive. They had chartered a private jet for 18,000 dollars but Davido did not board it. All attempts to contact him proved fruitless.

Due to the broken agreement, Brownhill Investments seeks reimbursement of the 94,500 dollar performance fee from Davido. This high-profile case will decide financial and reputational stakes for both parties.
