Pinnick Sues Davido, Demands N2.3b For Alleged Breach of Contract FIFA Council Member, Amaju Pinnick and organisers of the yearly ‘Warri Again Concert’, have filed N2.3 billion suit before the High Court of Delta State in Effurun against a Nigerian-American superstar singer, David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly known as Davido over an alleged breach of agreement/contract between them.
Davido and his music record label, Davido Music Worldwide Limited are two Defendants listed in the suit before the court.
The claimant under the name, Brownhill Investments Company Limited, through its counsel, Kelechi Onwuegbuchulem in suit number EHC/183/2023, is asking the court to award N2billion as general damages against Davido.
Specifically, the claimant is praying the court for N150million as legal and professional fees, and additional sum N30million as cost of filing the suit.
The claimant is also seeking an order directing the defendants jointly and/or severally to tender a public apology on all the 1st defendant’s social media accounts/handles and in two national daily newspapers for four consecutive days, to the claimant and attendees.
Davido had stated that the money he received for the performance at the show will not be refunded back to the former Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, he said he will instead give the money to the grassroots football clubs.
Pinnick claimed to have paid for his appearance in full because Davido insisted that the performance fee must be paid in full in March 2023 when the contract was signed to secure his performance at the event.
Consequently, Pinnick said the sum of US$94,500.00 (an equivalent of N70million) was paid on April 6, 2023 and same was duly acknowledged by Davido who failed to show up to perform live at the concert.
