In a dramatic turn of events, former Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Pinnick, has unleashed a legal firestorm against none other than the afrobeat sensation, Davido, popularly known as the ‘Baddest.’
Accusations of cyberbullying and character defamation have set off shockwaves that are rattling the entertainment and sports worlds!
Pinnick alleges that Davido’s scorching social media onslaught in October has put not only his life but also the lives of his close-knit family in peril. Threats of physical harm, injury, and assaults hang ominously over the former NFF chief and his loved ones.
This courtroom showdown stems from a heated clash between the artist and Pinnick in October, which ignited a relentless feud. Davido’s no-show at a paid performance event triggered a blaze of accusations and revelations that have left the nation on the edge of its seat!
The sizzling exposé by PREMIUM TIMES uncovers a bombshell: a performance agreement signed between Davido’s company and BrownHill Event Inc, owned by Pinnick, locked the artist into an electrifying show in Warri on October 6. The contract, inked by the artist’s agent, Soso Soberekon, promised an explosive 55-60 minute performance. Victor Wokocha endorsed the pact for Brownhill, while Cecil Bekederemo watched as a crucial witness.
The plot thickens! On that fateful October day, Davido was nowhere to be found in Warri, as he had committed to another electrifying performance in Melbourne, Australia. The backlash was merciless, with Pinnick apologizing to the disappointed attendees, asserting that every contractual obligation and payment was fulfilled, but Davido was a no-show.
In a fiery counterattack, Davido took to Instagram, Snapchat, and X (formerly Twitter) to unleash a digital tempest against Pinnick. The sparks flew as the artist hurled scathing remarks, implying that the former NFF President was a dream crusher who allegedly mishandled FIFA’s $8.4 million and left Nigerian footballers high and dry.
Pinnick retaliated by dragging the artist to court, arguing that Davido’s statements painted him as a characterless, deceitful, and dishonest individual in the eyes of the public. The cyberbullying, stalking, and harassment inflicted by the artist through his “defamatory and incendiary posts” have left Pinnick reeling from the relentless online onslaught.
The former NFF powerhouse insisted that Davido’s intentions were crystal clear: to tarnish his reputation, bring him to ridicule, and cast him into the abyss of public scorn and contempt.
As this legal conflagration unfolds, the nation watches with bated breath, torn between its love for the music and its reverence for football. Will Davido’s fiery words backfire in a courtroom showdown of epic proportions, or will Pinnick’s allegations crumble under the scrutiny of the Baddest’s legal team? The battle lines are drawn, and the spectacle promises to be nothing short of sensational!
