According to PUNCH reports, Davido who was billed to perform at the festival last Saturday, was noticeably absent to the disappointment of guests and fans. Reports say guests were so upset the 23-year-old singer didn’t turn up, they began to complain that his performance at the show may have been a fluke.

However, organisers of the much-anticipated Festival of India maintain that Davido had been booked for the show. The chief organiser of the festival, Bolaji Rosiji, also confirmed this.
Davido was reportedly paid close to N7 million to perform at the festival but he is said to have cancelled a day to the event, stating that he was indisposed and couldn’t make it. The organisers of the show were said to have contacted Davido’s lawyers for a refund which has not been paid.
Other artistes who performed at the show include former PMAN president,Tee Mac and his Gold Convention, Ara and Pasuma. Nollywood stars such as Desmond Elliot, Tina Mba and Saheed Balogun were also present at the colourful event.
PUNCH reports that efforts to reach Davido and his manager have been unfruitful, adding that messages and phone calls sent to them yesterday have not been responded to.
