Famous Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, widely known as Davido, has issued a subtle response to the recent allegations made by the former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick.
The allegations revolve around Davido’s supposed failure to perform at the Warri Again festival in Delta State, despite having allegedly received a substantial payment of $94,600 (approximately N72 million) and the organizers booking a private jet for his convenience at an additional cost of $18,000.
Pinnick had publicly criticized Davido for his absence at the event and insinuated that the artist was growing increasingly arrogant, despite not being a bigger artist than Burna Boy, who hails from the Itsekiri community in Warri.
In what appears to be a veiled response to Pinnick’s allegations, Davido took to his social media platform, using the X handle, to post a message that read, “Throwing stones but u dey live for glass house.” This cryptic message seems to suggest that he perceives Pinnick’s accusations as hypocritical.
Davido didn’t stop there; he further asserted his authority in the Nigerian entertainment industry by proclaiming, “Nobody can stop me from performing anywhere in Nigeria… Warri I will see you soon,” in another post. This statement reflects his unwavering determination to continue performing for his fans, regardless of any controversies surrounding his appearances.
Additionally, Davido posted a picture of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) logo on his social media with the caption, “Make I no talk.” This post seems to indicate that Davido may have more to say on the matter, but for now, he chooses to remain silent.
The dispute between Davido and Amaju Pinnick has garnered significant attention on social media, with fans and followers eagerly awaiting further developments in this ongoing saga.
