Davido Takes On Amaju Pinnick, Accuses Him of Dashing Dreams of Nigerian Footballers

Nigerian singer Davido has been vocal in his criticism of former Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick. This comes after allegations that Davido failed to show up for a scheduled show in Warri, despite receiving a payment of $94,600 and having his flight arranged.

Amaju Pinnick, in a video shared on social media, accused the Afrobeat singer of being a no-show for the event scheduled for October 6, 2023. Pinnick claimed that they had paid Davido $94,600 on April 6th, along with an additional $18,000 for his flight.

In response, the 30-year-old Davido took to social media, including Twitter, to fire back at Pinnick, calling him out for hypocrisy and living in a “glass house.”

Subsequently, Davido made a new statement via his Instagram stories on Saturday night, pledging to return the money and even double it for a football charity organization in Nigeria. He also accused Pinnick of using funds meant for the organization to maintain a lavish lifestyle in the upscale Ikoyi area of Lagos.

Davido expressed his intent to make amends, stating, “I wanna donate money to @thenofficial [a football charity organization] been suffering for too long it’s not fair… let’s do something.”
