In what appears to be a reply to Amaju Pinnick’s allegation, music star, Davido has said nobody can stop from performing anywhere.
Pinnick, immediate past President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) had on Friday, accused Davido of refusing to perform at an event in Warri, Delta State, despite being paid an excess of $94,600.
He also alleged that organisers also booked a private jet for $18,000 for the singer but that he never showed up.
According to Pinnick, the organisers had to shop for another artiste, Shallipopi as the singer’s replacement.
“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.
In a post on his official X handle on Saturday, Davido bragged that nobody could stop him from performing anywhere in Nigeria.
He assured 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.”
