Davido in fresh scandal in U.S


With the dust of the mystery behind the shocking death of his three friends in the past few weeks yet to settle, HKN singer, Davido, has been trailed with yet another scandalous controversy in new report.

When he hit the Nigerian music scene in 2010, it was with the force of dynamite. His rise to stardom was meteoric and every song he released was an instant hit. At 19, he had become a household name, boasting of a multimillion naira endorsement deal with telecoms giant, MTN.

But then, with success in the music industry, came a world of scandals and controversies. Not long ago, Davido embarked on a $30 billion tour that took him to 30 cities across the globe. However, the singer ran into troubled waters with his show promoters when he failed to turn up for a sold out show on September 1 in Colorado, USA.

Fans had indeed been angry and expressed their disgust at the failure of Davido to show up for the show. Obviously aware that there could be a backlash, the singer went online on September 2 to apologise to his fans.

In a snap chat message, he declared that he would have been arrested for credit card fraud like fellow musician, Dammy Krane, had he come for the show. He stated that it was in a bid to avoid being “Dammy Krane” that made him not to appear in Colorado.

However, Davido’s apology did little to assuage frayed nerves. In a swift reaction, the organiser, BME, had carpeted the musician, stating that he deliberately missed the show, while dubbing him a liar.

According to BME, three flights had been booked for Davido consecutively but he bluntly failed to honour any of them, under the guise that he was doing a photo shoot, while he was actually partying.

Disappointed and fuming, Ayodele Akindele, a staunch fan of Davido based in Colorado, had stated: “It is obvious that Davido is not telling the truth. That he was arrested is probably an excuse just to get off the hook. We all came out and bought tickets for his show only for him to abandon us; it is so sad.”

Another fan of Davido, Balkissa Saidou, said: “(Davido) stole my money, wasted my time and didn’t even have the decency to be honest to the guests. So disappointed.”

And for Dan Asima, Davido simply took his fans for granted. “It is sad that Davido chose to go parting while his fans here in Colorado were waiting for him. It is so sad.”

Meanwhile, in order to assuage fans, BME had organised another concert for October 16 featuring P-Square. It was a free show. But lots of music fans were not assuaged by BME’s option. An angry Ashley Reynolds fumed:

“This means nothing to me! You guys still haven’t resolved anything. And to sum it up, you guys try and bring another artiste out here when the first one never came. You guys trying to butter people up with a free concert. (This) isn’t going to make people forget how you’ve wronged us. Nor will it bring our money back to our wallets.”
