In Nigeria, big political events often host top-notch performances.
Take Dr. Alex Otti’s recent inauguration as the new governor of Abia State, for instance.
The key highlight? An exciting show by the Afropop star, Davido. Naturally, this sparked one big question: ‘How much was Davido paid?’
Davido is a big deal in Nigerian music. So, his presence at Otti’s inauguration got people talking. Was he paid a fortune, or did he perform for free?
After looking into it, MandyNews.com discovered the truth behind Davido’s payment for the inauguration show. You might find the answer surprising.
The Davido-Otti Friendship
Otti’s move from a successful banking career to politics is inspiring. Known for his philanthropy, he has touched many lives, including Davido’s.
Davido and Otti share a close friendship. Davido looks up to Otti as a godfather. This relationship goes back to when Davido was a child. This bond probably led to Davido’s performance at the inauguration.
“Not a dime. I’ve known His Excellency all my life … and I’m sure he will do well for the people of Abia state” – Davido
The Truth Comes Out
Facing rumors about his payment, Davido stated on social media that he didn’t get paid. It was a friendly gesture for Governor Otti.
This goes against the usual ‘pay-for-play’ norm. It shows that some performances are about relationships, not money.
