Davido Faces N2.3bn Lawsuit Over Alleged Breach of Contract

The organisers of the annual ‘Warri Again Concert’, Brownhill Investments Company Limited, have filed a N2.3bn lawsuit against David Adeleke, known as Davido, for allegedly breaching their agreement/contract.

Brownhill Investments Company Limited, owned by former Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick, has taken the case to the Delta State High Court in Effurun.

The claimant, represented by lawyer Kelechi Onwuegbuchulem, is seeking N2bn in general damages from Davido and his music label, Davido Music Worldwide Limited.

The claimant also requests the court to order Davido to pay N150m as legal and professional fees, along with an additional N30m for the cost of filing the lawsuit.

Additionally, the claimant wants the court to instruct the singer to publicly apologize on all social media platforms and two national newspapers for four consecutive days, directed towards the claimant and attendees.

According to the claimant’s statement, Davido approached Pinnick at Abuja Airport earlier in 2023 to express interest in performing at the 19th edition of the ‘Warri Again Concert’ scheduled for October 6, 2023.

Although hesitant at first, Pinnick eventually agreed to Davido’s request, with a performance fee of N70m set.

On April 6, 2023, the claimant paid the agreed sum of US$94,500.00 (equivalent to N70m), which was duly acknowledged by the defendants.

However, Davido failed to show up at the event despite doing a promotional video beforehand.

The claimant states that it incurred significant expenses for print and social media advertisements and promotions for the event. They sent a reminder letter to Davido on September 29, 2023, along with the flight itinerary for a chartered private jet, incurring an additional $18,000 in expenses.

Despite attempts to reach Davido and his team on the day of the event, they were unresponsive. The claimant kept the chartered private jet available at the Lagos Airport in case they eventually showed up.

As a result, Pinnick’s company is seeking the full payment of $94,500 for engaging Davido’s services.
