Just days after threatening and abusing a blogger on social media, Nigerian singer Davido is back in the news for all the wrong reasons after allegedly being planted on the Gambia Police Wanted List for assault.
The star was on tour in the tiny West African nation recently where he performed at a somewhat underwhelming concert but it’s for something else outside the show business that is grabbing all the attention.
A celebrity photographer, Kenny Egbuke, who covered the star’s recent tour of the country filed a complaint with the police after being physically assaulted by the 26 year old Afrobeats sensation during an argument.
According to reports, Davido did not take kindly to Egbuke challenging his treatment of a female fan that the singer shoved and abused for angling too close while asking for a photo. And after getting into a verbal confrontation with the photographer, the star assaulted him. The situation could have even gotten grave if not for the quick thinking of his entourage who allegedly dragged him away just as he attempted to break a bottle he held in hand.
It remains to be seen if the star will honour the invitation of the police.
