Davido settles with Pinnick, agrees to perform at Delta concert




Nigerian superstar David Adeleke, also known as Davido, has agreed to settle a breach of contract case launched against him by the Amaju Pinnick-led Brownhill Investment Company Limited outside of court.

It was reported in October 2023 that Pinnick, a former head of the Nigeria Football Federation, chastised Davido for failing to satisfy his performance responsibilities at an event despite receiving $94,600.

Brownhill Investments Company Limited filed EHC/183/2023 before the Delta State High Court in Effurun. The firm filed legal action against Davido, seeking N2.3 billion.

Davido was accused of breaching a contract when he failed to satisfy his performance commitments at the 19th edition of the ‘Warri Again’ event despite being paid the desired fees.

The claimant sought that the court pay N150 million in legal and professional expenses, as well as an extra N30 million to cover the cost of launching the suit against Davido.

Pinnick further stated that a chartered plane was used to take the singer to Warri, costing an additional $18,000.

However, according to reports, the two parties reached a mutual agreement to resolve the issue outside of the courtroom.

On Thursday, the High Court of Delta approved their motion.

As part of the agreement, Davido has promised to pay the claimant N30 million within seven days of the settlement being finalized.

This reward will help cover some of the claimant’s unpaid legal bills.

As part of a settlement made outside of court, the defendant has committed to perform live at the upcoming ‘Warri Again’ concert on October 4, 2024.

It was also determined that the $94,500 that the claimant had previously paid to the defendants would be considered payment for the event’s performance.

According to The Cable, the parties also agreed as follows: “The parties have resolved the miscommunication issues that occasioned this dispute, and the 1st defendant shall immediately post on his social media platforms, including X, Instagram, Facebook, Snap Chat, etc., the following statement:

“All issues regarding the ‘Warri Again 2023 Concert’ have been settled between Mr. Amaju Pinnick and myself, and I am happy to announce that I shall be performing live at the ‘Warri Again 2024 Concert’ on October 4, 2024, in Warri, Delta State.

“The defendants shall, within seven days of execution of these Terms of Settlement, pay the sum of N30,000,000 to the claimant, being a part contribution to the claimant’s outstanding legal fees in this suit.

“The defendants shall, given these terms of the settlement, withdraw the appeal filed against the ruling of this honorable court dated January 16, 2024.

“The claimant shall provide a private jet to convey the defendants, as well as provide accommodation and other logistics for the defendants’ performance at the ‘Warri Again’ concert slated to be held on October 4, 2024.

“These terms of settlement shall be binding on the parties to this suit, their agents, privies, successors in title, or any person or entity howsoever described acting at the behest or authority of any of the parties to this suit, upon adoption of the same.

“The parties have agreed that these terms of settlement shall be binding, shall have immediate effect from the date of execution, and shall be adopted by the parties’ respective counsel when the matter comes up in court.”
