Davido challenges the promoter of the Italian show who allegedly tricked him
Nigerian music artist, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has taken to his social media page to call out a show promoter for allegedly tricking him in Italy.
Taking to his Instagram page, the singer noted that after he arrived in Italy for a show, the promoter failed to live up to his end of the deal.
Davido noted that the show’s promoter sold thousands of tickets but refused to pay him for the show.
The Afrobeats icon detailed the struggles and efforts he went through to show up for the event, only for the promoter to take his “craftsmanship and hard work for granted”.
“We overexert our bodies, our blood sweat and our tears daily to keep up with and deliver these shows to our fans, only for people to take our craft and hard work for granted,” Davido said.
Davido added that although he travels by private jet most of the time, he had to take three connecting flights to Italy due to logistical problems.
He added: “I fly private 90% of the time but due to logistical issues we were unable to get a landing permit in time.
So I even decided to take almost three connecting flights to get here. We get here and the developer hasn’t lived up to their end of the deal.
