Recall, Amaju Pinnick earlier this year called out Davido for taking money for a show which he never attended.

“We paid Davido $94,600 on the 6th of April. We paid $18,000 for his plane. If he says he’s a big boy, we will tell him we are bigger than him,” Pinnick said during the 19th edition of Warri Again.

“I’m not joking. So, while he was playing his games back and forth, we decided to hunt to find another artiste, Shallipopi,” he continued.

Pinnick went ahead to argue that Grammy award winning Nigerian singer, Burna Boy is bigger that Davido who according to him claims he is a big boy.

“You see, when people say they are big, I’m amazed. Is Burna Boy not the biggest artiste in Nigeria today? Burna Boy is half Itsekiri. Burna Boy’s paternal grandmother is Itsekiri. So, he’s bigger than him (Davido).

“Is there anyone bigger than RMD in the acting industry? Or someone bigger than Ali Baba in the comedy industry? We have stars aplenty in Warri. Nobody is bigger than Warri,” he added.
