Nigerian music icon Davido to pursue legal action against Kenya’s K24 TV over false reports. Stay tuned for updates on this developing story.

Nigerian music sensation Davido has directed his legal team to take action regarding an April Fool’s prank that went awry. The false story claimed that the Afrobeats star had been arrested in Kenya for cocaine possession on his private jet. Davido, 31, vehemently denied the allegations, calling them “extremely irresponsible” in a statement on social media.

“I have never been arrested by anyone in any country for any crime in the world,” he said on social media.

“Not my home Nigeria, my home America, or any of the hundreds of countries I’ve made home throughout my career,” his statement on X, formerly Twitter, continued.

The hoax, initially circulated by Kenya’s K24 TV, quickly spread on social platforms, prompting a flood of inquiries to Davido. The backlash was such that Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) labeled the story as “Fake News.” Davido clarified that he had completed his scheduled performances in Uganda and Kenya before returning home to Nigeria, emphasizing the falsehood of the allegations.

“I want to assure my fans that these reports are entirely untrue. I successfully completed my scheduled shows in Uganda and Kenya and have since returned home to Nigeria,” Davido said on Tuesday.

“I find the fabrication of allegations of such international crimes extremely irresponsible regardless of the light of ‘April Fools’, and my lawyer is seeking legal recourse against the media parties responsible for generating this misinformation.”

He condemned the fabrication of such serious accusations, even in the context of April Fools’ Day, and announced his intention to pursue legal action against the media outlets responsible for spreading misinformation. K24 TV has not yet responded to Davido’s legal threat. While many Kenyans found the prank inappropriate, some are hopeful for an amicable resolution to the situation.
