Davido to pay Pinnick N30m over breach of contract

Popular Nigerian singer, David Adedeji Adeleke, also known as Davido, has agreed to settle the breach of contract suit filed against him by the immediate past President of the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick-led Brownhill Investment Company Limited at the High Court of Delta State, Effurun.

The singer is to settle the dispute out of court.

As part of the consent judgment entered in a N2 billion suit filed against him, Davido also agreed to pay N30 million to the claimant, being a part contribution to the claimant’s outstanding legal fees in the suit within seven days of execution of the terms of settlement.

DAILY POST recalls that the claimant had, through his lawyer, Kelechi Onwuegbuchulem, in suit EHC/183/2023, prayed the court to award N2 billion as general damages against Davido.

The claimant prayed for N150 million as legal and professional fees, and an additional sum of N30 million as cost of filing the suit.

Listed as defendants in the suit are David Adeleke a.k.a “Davido”, and his music label, Davido Music Worldwide Limited.

Consequent upon an extensive discussion and negotiations to have the matter resolved amicably, the parties have mutually agreed to perform at the “Warri Again Concert” edition on October 4, 2024.

In the consent judgment, parties further agreed that the sum of $94,500 which the claimant had already paid to the defendants, will be considered for the performance at the event.
