Nigerian hip-hop singer, David Adeleke, better known as "Davido", is a fresh scandal. This time, the popular singer allegedly issued a dud cheque to an auto dealer for the purpose of paying the sum of N7.4m as a balance for a Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 he purchased.
Documents exclusively obtained by SaharaReporters showed that the auto dealer, Mr. Anekwu Chika Valentine of Prestige Autonet Limited, has already contracted a Lagos-law firm to assist him to recover the debt.
A letter of instruction addressed to the law firm of W.K Shittu and Co., stated that the law firm will take 10% of the sum owed by Davido if it is recovered. On February 10, Davido issued two Zenith Bank (account number 100424****) cheques of N10m and N1.4m respectively.
However, the latter, which apparently was to pay a part of the N7.4m was not honored by Zenith Bank, where the auto dealer is also a customer. Giving a did cheque is a criminal offense punishable by a 2-year jail term.
