Famous Afrobeats singer, Davido, is facing a N2.3 billion breach of contract lawsuit filed against him by Amaju Pinnick, the Chairman of Brownhill Investments Company Limited.

Pinnick, a former president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), filed the lawsuit on October 31.

He alleges that Davido failed to fulfill his contract to perform at the 19th edition of the ‘Warri Again’ event on October 6, 2023, despite receiving a payment of $94,500.

During the hearing of the lawsuit, Davido’s legal team, led by Norrison Quakers (SAN), challenged the jurisdiction of the Delta State High Court in Effurun to handle the case.

Davido argued that the matter should be treated as a debt recovery case and that Pinnick should have sent a demand letter before taking legal action.

Davido denied that Sosoberokon, who signed the contract on his behalf, was his authorized agent. He also disputed Pinnick’s claim that the payment was for a performance rather than promotional services.

The court has adjourned the case to December 14, 2023, to rule on the preliminary objections filed by both parties.
