Amaju Pinnick

Former president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick has accused Afrobeat singer Davido of being absent from show despite getting paid $94,600.

Pinnick stated this at the 19th edition of Warri Again. A video of him speaking has gone viral.

The former NFF leader claimed that the organisers also booked a private jet for $18,000 for the ‘Unavailable’ singer yet he did not show up.

His words: “We paid Davido $94,600 on the 6th of April. We paid $18,000 for his plane.

“If he says he’s a big boy, we will tell him we are bigger than him.

“I’m not joking. So, while he was playing his games back and forth, we decided to hunt to find another artiste, Shallipopi.

“You see, when people say they are big, I’m amazed. Is Burna Boy not the biggest artiste in Nigeria today? Burna Boy is half Itsekiri. Burna Boy’s paternal grandmother is Itsekiri. So, he’s bigger than him (Davido).

“Is there anyone bigger than RMD in the acting industry? Or someone bigger than Ali Baba in the comedy industry?

“We have stars aplenty in Warri. Nobody is bigger than Warri.”
