Davido Still Wins Right In The Middle Of Controversy
Davido has already started the year with his first controversy and first set of awards.
Davido came back to Nigeria after holidaying in Dubai, and his return started with punches, slid into jail time, a court case and ended with 3 Awards in the hands of the DMW boss.
On Thursday, January 11, one of Davido’s crew was accused of causing havoc at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport.
22-year-old Kayode Umarudeen, must have been buoyed by the iPhoneX Davido gave him or the fact that he was returning from Dubai with his boss.
No one will ever know why Kayode flipped at the airport.
A checkpoint staff was trying to verify some of Davido’s checked luggage with the attached tags, but, Kayode allegedly did not allow the official carryout his duty.
His claimed resistance turned into an argument that led to pummeling and body slams.
By the time ‘hurricane’ Kayode was finally wrestled to the ground and put in handcuffs, he had left the checkpoint staff, an airport security staff and an Assistant Customs Comptroller, with various degrees of injuries.
Kayode was arrested and charged to court, while Davido was whisked away from the scene of the airport chaos.
The next day, on Friday, January 12, police arraigned Kayode on a 5-count charge at the Ikeja Magistrate court, before Mrs. E. Kubanje.
He was charged for assault, breach of public peace and for resisting arrest.
Kayode was granted bail conditions to the tune of 50, 000 Naira and two sureties in like sum.
50,000 Naira is like 50 Naira to Omo Baba Olowo, but even Davido did not go near the court, because, he was obviously preparing to attend and perform at the Sound City MVPs on Friday.
Davido shook off the incident to win three Awards at the Sound City MVP Awards, beating the likes of 2face Idibia, Wizkid, Ghana’s Sarkodie and South Africa’s Casper Nyovest.
He won African artiste of the year, video of the year and song of the year for the hit song ‘IF’.
As at Friday evening, Kayode had not perfected his bail conditions.
Davido oya help Kayode out.
