“I commend both parties for exploring an amicable resolution to settle out of court,” Obi said.

The News Agency of (NAN) reports that Brownhill Investment Company is owned by Mr Amaju Pinnick, former President of the Nigeria Federation (NFF).

The company had in Oct. 2023 filed a suit, marked EHC/183/2023, before the court having the singer, Davido, and his label, Davido Music Worldwide Limited, as joint defendants.

NAN recalls that the company had sued the defendants over a breach of contract to perform at the 19th edition of the ‘Warri Again '.

In the suit, the appellant prayed the court to a sum of N2 billion as general damages against the defendants for failing to honour the contract of the concert.

Pinnick's company also prayed the court for N150 million as legal and professional fees with an additional N30 million as the filling cost.

Responding to the court verdict, counsel to the defendants, Mr Oladayo Ogungbe, told NAN after the court's proceedings that both parties had been able to explore the out-of-court settlement.

“Davido is coming again to Warri on Oct. 4 to perform – that forms part of the settlement.

“It's fine. It is better than going through the rigours of litigations.

“Both parties consider the option of having the matter settled out of court, which in my opinion as a lawyer, is the best approach to any litigation.

“It is a win-win situation to both parties,” Ogungbe said.

NAN reports that the ‘Warri Again” concert is an annual organised by Pinnick to celebrate entertainers from the Niger Delta region.
