Last night was dedicated to pop star Davido as fans and colleagues gathered at the Eko Atlantic City for his year-end Lagos headline show, Davido Live In Concert.
Part of the many artistes who showed up to support the show was Kizz Daniel who recently scored a massive hit with Davido dubbed One Ticket. Daniel had been announced as part of the night’s line-up and he’d gone on to tweet about his excitement in the early hours of yesterday. “OBO doingz tonight… caming***”.
The pop star, however, ended up not performing and the reason was reportedly due to an assault on his manager perpetrated by Davido himself.
According to reports which have been validated by Tumi Lawrence, Kizz Daniel’s manager and victim of the assault, Davido smacked him on the face because he was seen backstage around Davido’s changing spot. The account which was given by a social media with the username Peter Uoninon also posited that Davido was informed beforehand that the victim was Kizz Daniel’s manager but he went ahead to strike.
Displeased by the situation, Kizz Daniel who was supposed to deliver a joint performance of One Ticket with Davido walked away from the event with his team. But Davido went ahead to do the song alone.
Tumi has gone on Twitter to call out Davido and his manager, Asa Asika who was reportedly also at the assault scene.
Davido is yet to respond to the situation, but here’s how some Twitter users have reacted.
Davido used Kizz Daniel. He stole his song. Fuck his stupid “We Rise By lifting Others” shit. Davido is a very arrogant dude. Kizz Daniel next time dont sell your song to that idiot. He’s looking for talented people so he can buy their Hardwork. #InfinixDavidoLiveInConcert

Davido slapped and poured drink on Kizz Daniel’s manager last night?
Kizz Daniel left in anger and couldn’t perform the ‘One ticket’ song with Davido on stage.
I love Kizz Daniel, family first.
Davido should be careful.
