Davido Settles Breach of Contract Lawsuit, Agrees to Pay N30 Million

Singer Resolves Legal Dispute with Brownhill Investment Company Limited at Delta State High Court

Nigerian singer Davido has reached an agreement to settle the breach of contract lawsuit filed against him by Brownhill Investment Company Limited, led by former president of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, at the Delta State High Court in Effurun.

As part of the consent judgment entered in the N2 billion lawsuit, Davido has agreed to pay N30 million to the claimant, contributing to the outstanding legal fees within seven days of executing the terms of settlement.

Justice Michael Obi of High Court Three, Effurun, praised both parties for opting to resolve the matter amicably outside of court. He stated, “I commend both parties for exploring an amicable resolution to settle out of court.”

In response to the court’s decision, counsel to the defendants, Mr. Oladayo Ogungbe, announced that Davido would perform in Warri on October 4 as part of the settlement agreement. He emphasized that settling out of court was preferable to prolonged litigation, describing it as a win-win situation for both parties involved.

The legal dispute stemmed from an incident in October 2023 when Pinnick accused Davido of failing to fulfill his performance obligations at an event despite receiving $94,600. Brownhill Investments Company Limited subsequently filed a lawsuit against Davido, seeking N2.3 billion in damages for breaching the contract related to the 19th edition of the ‘Warri Again’ concert.
