Davido finally took his time to talk about the allegation that he slapped Kizz Daniel’s manager, Tumi Lawrence, during his Eko Atlantic City concert last year in Lagos.
In a question and answer session with his fans on Twitter, Davido said that he never touched Tumi Lawrence and that he was shocked his team did that to him.
Asked by a fan for update on his current relationship with Kizz Daniel? He replied, “God knows I can never slap his manager. He knows that i did not. Its all love always. It hurt me how they switched up on me after all i did. Its cool though. Its all love always.”
After the slap drama, Tumi Lawrence in an interview said, “I was backstage talking to Asa (Davido’s manager) because we’ve been waiting for like two hours to perform and we actually had other engagements that we cancelled just to come and show Davido love based on the fact that we have a popping song together ‘One Ticket’ and he’s also showed us love too’.
‘So I talking to Asa like when are we going on stage and his countenance wasn’t really welcoming so I was trying to inform Kizz and my guys and I noticed someone pushing me from behind, and I looked back like ‘who go dey push person for GreenRoom (backstage)’.
‘When I looked back, It was Davido and his guys asking ‘who be dis one, who be dis one’ and they told them, ‘na Kizz Daniel manager’ before I knew it they poured drink on my face and slapped me
When asked who actually slapped him, he said,
‘first they poured drinks on my face before the slap landed and I immediately saw stars and I saw one black guy but people around were saying it was David himself but I can’t verify that because if dem slap you na stars you go dey see.
‘It doesn’t make any sense though, because we were there just to show love and it wasn’t like they were in front of me and I pushed them, they just came from behind’ he added.”
