Amaju Pinnick, former President of the Nigeria Football Federation, has accused singer Davido for allegedly failing to show up at the 19th edition of the Warri Again fest despite getting paid an excess of $94,600 (about 72 million naira).

The sports administrator added that the organisers also booked a private jet for $18,000 to bring the artist to perform at the event in Warri, Delta State.

Addressing the attendees in Pidgin, Pinnick said, “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.”
