Award-winning musician Davido has issued a response to his fellow artist Dammy Krane’s allegations of unpaid debts. Dammy Krane previously claimed that Davido owed him money for their collaboration on the song “Pere” and pleaded with the singer to settle the debt for the sake of his daughter’s school fees.
In his response on Twitter, Davido disputed the claims and mentioned that he had never been paid for the three verses he provided for Dammy Krane’s song, which occurred nine years ago. He also revealed that he had supported Dammy Krane by providing him with housing and food when he was homeless in Atlanta.
In his tweet, he said, I never got paid for that also my 3 verses I’ve gifted you all your dead career … .. oh yea plus my royalties , we charge now so that’s about $150 k x3 a verse.. also house rent and food when when u stayed in my house in Atlanta when you were homeless ..
Davido calculated the financial worth of his contributions, including the three verses, royalties, and living expenses, which amounted to a significant sum.
This exchange between the two artists has stirred online conversations, with some expressing disapproval of Dammy Krane’s public accusations and others suggesting the need for a comprehensive and transparent solution
