Pinnick: Davido seeks out-of-court settlement in breach of contact suit


Nigerian singer Davido has filed a preliminary objection challenging the jurisdiction of the Delta State High Court in Effurun to hear a breach of contract suit brought against him by Brownhill Investments Company Limited and its chairman, Amaju Pinnick.

The suit alleges that Davido failed to honor a contract to perform at the “Warri Again” event on October 6, 2023, after receiving a $94,500 payment. Davido denies the allegations and claims the payment was for promoting the show, not performing.

Davido’s objection argues that the case should be considered a debt recovery matter, requiring a letter of demand before legal action. He also denies that Sosoberokon is his agent authorized to negotiate performance contracts.

In a related criminal defamation case, Davido’s legal team has also filed a preliminary objection challenging the court’s jurisdiction, arguing that the defamatory statements were published online, not in Delta State.

Both cases have been adjourned to December 14 for rulings on the preliminary objections.

Additionally, Pinnick has obtained an injunction restraining Davido’s staff member, Israel, from making defamatory statements against him.

Amidst these legal proceedings, reports indicate that Davido is seeking out-of-court settlements, enlisting the help of influential Nigerians to persuade Pinnick to drop the suit. 

However, Pinnick is reportedly determined to continue the case due to the alleged tarnishing of his reputation by Davido.

Furthermore, Pinnick’s international associates are urging him to file a separate suit in the United States against Davido and his associates.
