Popular Nigerian singer, Davido resorted to social media last night to criticize a show promoter who broke their agreement and failed to pay him before the performance.
Davido said in a post on his Instagram Stories that show organisers sold out the performance he was engaged to perform but refused to pay him the remaining balance.
He did, however, declare that the show will go on because of the people who had spent their last money on tickets to see him play.
In his statement, Davido said;
We overwork our bodies, blood sweat and tears daily to keep up and deliver these shows for our fans… only for people to take our craft and hard work for granted… I fly private 90 percent of the time but logistics issues we couldn’t get a landing permit on time, so i even decided to take almost 3 connecting flights to get here.. We get here and promoter did not keep up to his own part of the agreement.
He soils thousands of tickets but doesn’t want to pay me!
Normally it’s no BALANCE NO SHOW.
I’ve been ready at the hotel for the past 4 hours waiting.
I’m for either cash or a wire.. still nothing!!
I know how many people used their last to see me, so because of them.. I will do the show.
