Radio and club disco jockeys in Malawi are joining forces to stop playing music by the Nigerian singer Davido for his bad manners he showed to his fans and the country’s officials during his recent visit to Malawi.
Davido, who was in the country for other engagements under the First Lady’s Beautify Malawi Trust, first annoyed Malawians when he captioned his Instagram photo that he was bored for being in the southern African nation.
As this is not enough, Davido was shown in a video wearing a long face snubbing cheering school pupils who were happily shouting his name.
The Nigerian musician stunned the cheering crowd when he seemed irritated by the welcoming hug by the Deputy Mayor of Lilongwe Kwame Bandawe.
The Nigerians singer defiantly pushed and blocked the mayor with his right elbow from further clinging to his hand, but unperturbed, Bandawe seemed not discouraged as he happily continued trailing behind the rude musician.
And the worst of his behavior happened at Lilongwe Hotel when he reportedly violently broke the hotel’s computers and other materials as he was refusing to pay the hotel bill of about MK1million he incurred through beer the previous night.
He is also reported to have slapped the hotel’s guard in the process.
One of the DJ’s in Blantyre said the DJs are making plans to punish the musician for taking Malawians for granted.
“We feel the best we can do is to ensure put a boycott to his music. The guy sucks” said one of the renowned radio DJs.
The DJ said word has been sent out to many DJs across the country to starve Davido’s music of airplay.
However, organizers of the Davido’s trip M-Cinema say they will issue a press statement on all issues surrounding Davido’s visit.
Airport officials said they let Davido go because they did not receive any advice from anyone that David was involved in a fracas and has broken property or left unpaid bills at Lilongwe Hotel.
Meanwhile., many Malawians say they have stopped liking his music due to his attitude towards Malawi fans. It is therefore uncertain if his coming in April with attract more fans.
