Davido Explains How April Fool’s Prank Affected His Family

Nigerian music sensation Davido recently appeared on Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning” to discuss the lawsuit he filed against a Kenyan media outlet, K24 TV.

While initially brushing off the outlet’s April Fools’ prank claiming his arrest for drugs, Davido’s stance changed after receiving a worried call from his father. The seriousness of the situation, with potential travel disruptions and reputational damage, prompted him to take action.

“I can’t just let this slide,” Davido told Sway. “Imagine flying into a country and getting swarmed by police because of a prank.”

Through legal representation, Davido seeked;

  • Content Removal: All defamatory content about him must be removed from K24 TV’s platforms.
  • Cease and Desist: The outlet must stop publishing any future defamatory information about him.
  • Public Apology: A public apology from K24 TV acknowledging the distress and damage caused.
  • Admission of Liability: K24 TV must admit fault for defamation, which could affect potential compensation.
  • Reimbursement for Legal Costs: Compensation for the legal fees incurred in fighting the false report.

This incident highlights the potential impact of misinformation, even when intended as a joke.
