After missing out on the 19th edition of the Warri Again event, Davido, the Afrobeats musician, has set a new date to perform in Delta.
On October 6, the Warri Again event was staged to honor entertainers from the Niger Delta region.
Former Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick recently chastised Davido for neglecting to attend the concert.
Pinnick argued that Davido had received $94,600 to perform at Warri Again.
He said a chartered plane was arranged to convey the singer to Warri, which cost the state another $18,000.
Pinnick, an executive member of the world football governing body FIFA, added that the organisers eventually replaced Davido with Shallipopi.
Reacting, Davido had aimed a thinly veiled dig at the ex-NFF chief, insinuating that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
But in a series of fresh Instagram posts, the singer announced that he will perform for his Delta fans in December.
He also revealed that he had earlier informed the organisers about his unavailability but wondered why “they continued to promote the show using my name”.
“I will be performing in WARRI DECEMBER! I wan see who get mind stop me … body go tell u,” he wrote.
“To my lovely fans in Warri that spent their hard earned money to come out. Apologies you had to experience this. I was not going to be physically able to make it and this had been communicated to ‘them’ for a longgggg while now I mean MONTHS ago but for reasons best known to them, they continued to promote the show using my name. It’s a shame.”
He also took a swipe at Pinnick while promising to “donate money to NFF” which he argued, “has been suffering for too long”.
“If I’m returning any money I’ll return it to any football charity organization.. INFACT I will DOUBLE IT….. MR DREAM CRUSHER… imagine how many Nigerian footballers have had their dreams crushed because person one live for ikoyi by force,” he wrote.
“Warri Pple hate you! And u know! Amaju come outside let’s talk!
“I wanna donate money to @thenffofficial been suffering for too long it’s not fair … let’s do something @puma”
