Nigerian music star Davido is not a happy man.
The musician who flew for several hours to Italy for the Havoc City Afro Festival, an event organized by Havoc City Entertainment and owned by one Ghanaian, Emmanuel Gyamfi has registered his frustration as to how the organizers of the event allegedly refused to pay him.
In a post on Instagram, Davido narrated the ordeal saying;
“How you sell 7k tickets but you don’t want to pay my balance? You are a fraud…Havoc Entertainment”
In a follow-up status update, Davido wrote;
“We overwork our bodies, blood, sweat and tears daily to keep up and deliver these shows for our fans…only for Apple to take our craft and hard work for granted…I fly private 90 per cent of the time but logistic issues we couldn’t get a landing permit on time, so I even decided to take 3 connecting flights to get there…we get here and the promoter did not keep up to his own part of the agreement… he’s sold thousands of tickets but doesn’t want to pay me!
NORMALLY IT’S NO BALANCE NOW 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 how many people used their last to see me! So because of that, I will do the show!!”
Despite the show of dissatisfaction, videos from the event saw Davido give off his best as though nothing had happened.
Held at the Vicenza Convention Center, the event also played hosts to Lynx Entertainment signed artists KiDi and Kuami Eugene.
The two are yet to make any allegations of organizers not meeting their part of their contract.
The organizers have since not commented on Davido’s allegations.
