Former President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has accused singer Davido of refusing to perform at the 19th edition of the Warri Again fest despite getting paid $94,600, which is about 72 million naira.

Pinnick, who is a co-organizer of the event, also revealed that they booked a private jet for $18,000 to bring Davido to Warri, Delta State.

Beyond Boders learned that the sports administrator while addressing attendees at the event, expressed himself in Pidgin English saying, “We paid Davido $94,600 on the 6th of April. We paid $18,000 for his plane. If im say him be big boy, we go tell am say we Big pass am.

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

“You see when people say dem big, I just dey laugh. The biggest artiste in Nigeria today, no be Burna Boy? Burna Boy is half Itsekiri. Burna Boy’s paternal grandmother is Itsekiri. So, he big pass am.

“Anybody fit big pass RMD for acting industry? Anybody fit big pass Ali Baba for comedy? Warri na back to back we get dem. Nobody fit big pass Warri.”

Pinnick’s comments have sparked outrage among Davido’s fans, who have accused him of being unprofessional and disrespectful to his fans. However, Davido has not yet responded to the allegations.
