Davido Calls out Show Promoters who Failed to Pay Him In Italy


Nigerian Afrobeats musician Davido took to his social media platforms to call out the organizers of the Havoc Afro Festival 2022 in Italy where he performed for free.

In a lengthy post on Instagram late Saturday, the 30BG boss called out the show promoters of the Havoc Afro Festival 2022 in Italy, on Saturday, May 28, 2022, over the failure to pay for his services at the event.

He wrote:

We overwork our bodies, blood sweats, 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% of the time but for logistics issues, we couldn’t get a landing permit on time. So I even decided to take almost three connecting flights to get here. We get here and the promoter did not keep up to his own part of the agreement, he sold 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 wire – still nothing. I know many people used their last to see me so because of that I will do the show!!

Davido however did not disappoint his fans who paid hard-earned money to see him; he performed and thrilled them at the event.
