Davido objects to Pinnick’s suit over ‘breach of contract’




Nigerian-American superstar singer, David Adedeji Adeleke (Davido), has filed a preliminary objection to challenge the N2.3 billion breach of contract suit instituted against him and his music label, Davido Music Worldwide Limited, by Brownhill Investments Company Limited and its Chairman, Mr. Amaju Pinnick.


Pinnick, a former President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), had instituted the N2.3 billion suit before the High Court of Delta State, Effurun, against Davido for an alleged breach of agreement/contract.

The claimants are asking the court to award the amount as general damages against Davido, following his refusal to honour a contract reached with him to perform at the 19th edition of the “Warri Again” event on October 6, 2023.

The claimant said he failed to appear after collecting the sum of US$94,500 (an equivalent of a million).

They stated that they also incurred additional expenses of $18,000 to secure the private jet chartered to convey Davido (first defendant) and his team, yet he refused to show up for the show.

At the resumed hearing of the suit, Davido had challenged the jurisdiction of the court to entertain the matter.

In his preliminary objection, the artiste premised his response on the grounds that the case is a debt recovery matter and that the claimant ought to have written a letter of demand first before rushing to court.

He further claimed that Sosoberokon is not his agent and does not negotiate performance contracts on his behalf.

While the singer claimed that he was not paid for the show and denied the agent, he however admitted receiving the payment of $94,500 but stated that the sum was payment for only promotion of the show.

In the sister case bordering on criminal defamation, Davido through his team of lawyers led by Mr. Norrison Quakers (SAN), also filed a preliminary objection challenging the jurisdiction of the court on the grounds that the defamatory statements were published online, but the claimant did not show that the defamatory statements were downloaded and viewed in Delta State to give the court jurisdiction.

Both matters have been adjourned to December 14, 2023, for the court to rule on the preliminary objections filed in both cases.

Also, in the N500 million defamation case filed against Israel, Davido’s Staff, no defence was filed on behalf of Israel and the court has already granted the application for an injunction restraining Israel from making any defamatory statements against Pinnick.

Pinnick’s legal team is led by Mr. Kelechi Onwu, a senior partner in Alegeh & Co., the law firm of the former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Mr. Austine Alegeh (SAN).

Strong indications have emerged that Davido has enlisted many Nigerians to help prevail on Pinnick to withdraw the suit.

It was gathered that many Nigerians, including three eminent personalities, are already in talks with Pinnick to settle out-of-court.

It was gathered that Pinnick is insisting on going ahead with the suit due to the attempt by Davido to tarnish his hard-earned reputation despite the unblemished and transparent career he had both as former President of NFF and current role with FIFA, which requires integrity and honesty.

It was further gathered that since Davido is also an American, pressures have intensified by Pinnick’s friends, associates and international partners for him to file a suit in the United States against Davido and his associates.

This young man called Davido is such an arrogant dude. You collected money to perform which you breached. Is it not reasonable to make refund and apologize. But no, he kept puffing and bragging instead of just being humble and make peace.

Amaju pinnick should institute another case against him in the US, I believe even if he escaped Nigeria, he won't escape US .

he is persuading people to help him tell Pinnik to withdraw the case and settle out of court, something he ought to have done before now.

Can he try that shit with a fulani man?

I don’t seem to understand this, Amaju Pinnick is the Chairman of the company that awarded contract to Davido?

Like all matters that happens whenever rich people have a misunderstanding,it will be settled outside of court,but I'm sure there will be a sacrificial goat whose head will used to break the coconut that will be eaten during the settlement.
Ego is a terrible thing,I don't understand why a matter like this should end in front of a Judge.
It's even both parties retaining Senior Advocates for a civil matter that finally baffles me,I'm sure the money that will eventually be paid by both parties to their counsels will end up being more than the money in the agreement.
I can already see the sacrificial goat in the Story,no counsel represented Mr Israel,no defence was made for him, I hope he has raised the 500m Amaju is suing for.
A word is enough for the Wise.
Still selling LAND in Ibeju-lekki

One fact of life is that practice of law is not about justice but about two lawyers getting paid to have fun exploiting the technical loopholes in the laws of the land to impress the judge.

His ass lickers are coming for you on how you hate and envy him.
I thought he was throwing words at this person like he was right. He is an intentionally disrespectful person. They are not his first victim, he use to insult them more. Mercy Johnson arrested him for same reason.

That's why he was throwing words knowing fully he is wrong. The man then looked like a scammer and the guilty one.
That's why the person is taking the case abroad where he will get Justice and Davido is afraid of thatn
