Tribal-Marked Model Publicly Calls Out Davido
Meanwhile, Nigerian model, Adetutu Alabi, has taken to social media to publicly call out Davido for owing her.
Adetutu, via her Instagram page on Thursday, said that the singer had messaged her a couple of years ago for a music video feature but did not sign any agreement with the singer.
She added that she was expecting her pay, but it never came to date.
Adetutu further pleaded with the singer to pay her, as she’s a girl from the ‘trenches’ and ‘hides nothing.’
