In an out-of-court settlement with Pinnick, Davido consents to play at a Delta event.

The Nigerian music sensation David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, has struck an out-of-court settlement to resolve the breach of contract case that Brownhill Investment Company Limited, directed by Amaju Pinnick, had launched against him.

Even though he had received the desired money, Davido was accused of breaking a contract after he failed to fulfill his performance duties at the 19th edition of the “Warri Again” concert.

In October 2023, Brownhill Investment Company filed a lawsuit against Davido and his record label, Davido Music Worldwide Limited, alleging breach of contract. The lawsuit stemmed from the Afrobeat artist’s refusal to play at the 19th “Warri Again Concert” after receiving the monies he had requested.

The Pinnicks filed a lawsuit, requesting that the defendants pay them N2 billion in general damages for breaching the terms of the concert contract.

Additionally, Pinnick’s company requested N150 million in legal and professional fees from the court, along with an extra N30 million for closing costs.

Pinnick added that further fees of $18,000 were incurred in order to arrange for the singer to be transported to Warri aboard a chartered plane.

Nevertheless, the two sides came to a mutual decision to settle the dispute out of court.

Later on, the High Court in Delta granted their motion, according to a Thursday story in The Cable.

Davido also committed to paying the claimant N30 million within seven days of the settlement being finalized.

This reimbursement will be applied to the claimant’s outstanding legal bills in part.

The defendant has consented to perform live at the impending “Warri Again” event on October 4, 2024, as part of an agreement made out of court.

Additionally, it was agreed that the $94,500 that the claimant had previously given the defendants would be regarded as payment for the performance of the event.


“All issues regarding ‘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 4th October, 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, in view of these terms of settlement, withdraw the appeal filed against the ruling of this honourable court dated 16th January, 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 04 October 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 same.

The Cable claimed that another agreement reached by the parties was this: “The parties have resolved the miscommunication issues that occasioned this dispute and the first defendant shall immediately post on his social media platforms including X, Instagram, Facebook, Snap Chat, etc.

“The parties have agreed that these terms of settlement shall be binding and 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.”
