Davido, the Afrobeats star, has raised objections to the N2.3 billion lawsuit filed against him by Amaju Pinnick, a former president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).


On October 31, Pinnick filed a lawsuit alleging that Davido breached a contract to perform at the 19th edition of the ‘Warri Again’ concert in Delta on October 6, 2023.

He claimed that Davido failed to appear at the event after receiving a payment of $94,500.

He further alleged that he incurred an additional $18,000 for a private jet chartered to transport Davido and his team, who ultimately did not show.


During a recent hearing, Davido, through his team of lawyers led by Norrison Quakers (SAN), challenged the jurisdiction of the Delta state high court in Effurun to hear the matter.

They argued that the issue should be treated as a debt recovery case and that Pinnick should have issued a demand letter before resorting to legal action.

Davido’s lawyers also denied that Sosoberokon, who signed the contract on his behalf, was his authorised agent.


They also disputed Pinnick’s claim that the payment was for a performance rather than promotional services.

The presiding judge, however, adjourned to December 14, 2023, for the court to rule on the preliminary objections filed in both cases.

The Afrobeats star earlier aimed a thinly veiled dig at Pinnick, while also assuring his Warri fans of a performance soon.
