One Injured During Fight Between Nigerian Music Star, Davido’s Gang And Another Gang In Dubai Club



One person has reportedly sustained injuries after Nigerian hip-hop star, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido and his men allegedly got into a fight with some people in a club in Dubai, UAE. 

According to reports, David’s crew, known as the ’30 billion gang’ reportedly got into a fight at a club in Dubai, UAE over the weekend.

From videos that have now gone viral, some men said to be Davido team members engaged in a brawl, breaking bottles at the club after the artiste ‘felt oppressed’.

Eyewitnesses claimed the ‘Dubai guys’ got to the club and ordered a lot of expensive drinks after which Davido got in and ordered just one Azul and Don Julio.

An eyewitness said patrons bought more drinks and brought out their phones to record the musician but the club’s bouncer approached them and asked them to stop recording, saying Davido didn’t like it.

“Davido only ordered one Azul and Don Julio whereas the people I went with already ordered Moet, Azul and others, that was where the problem started. Bouncers came to meet us and asked us to stop making videos. Is Davido the owner of the club? Is his father the owner of the club?” one of the members of the other camp asked. 

An argument ensued and a fight broke out between Davido’s crew and the patrons. One of the patrons allegedly collapsed after a bottle was smashed on his head.

The police intervened but some of the ladies thereafter created a scene outside the club as they claimed Davido’s men seized their phones for recording the fight.

A lady said, “You know Dubai boys love buying drinks so Davido felt oppressed. There was a guy that was making a video of Davido and Davido asked the bouncer to collect the phone from the guy. The young man said he had done nothing wrong that why will Davido ask for his phone to be seized, that was how he got angry and started throwing bottles, his boys started throwing glass cups, it was not a small issue. A young man even fainted there.”

One of the ladies identified as Bianca was heard hurling insults at the musician saying she was not going to go until she retrieved her phone. 

Others accused Davido of being arrogant and capitalising on the fact that he was a celebrity. 

Over the weekend, Davido donated the sum of N250 million to orphanages across Nigeria.

The music artiste, who asked his friends to send him money for his birthday, thereafter received about N200 million from Nigerians, including billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola.

He announced on Friday that he was donating the N250 million to orphanages to help give children in those places a good life.

According to Davido, who made a personal donation of N50 million to the cause, giving and helping people around him was one of his biggest joys in life.

Why Judge Was Forced To Adjourn Trial Of Nigerian Singer, Naira Marley For Alleged Cybercrime



The trial of a popular musician, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley has been adjourned till February 16, 2022, by a Federal High Court in Lagos.
Justice Nicholas Oweibo on Tuesday fixed the date following the absence of an Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) witness, Mr Augustine Anosike, which stalled the resumption of Marley’s trial for alleged cybercrime.

Anosike, a forensic analyst, is testifying as a second prosecution witness in the case.
The EFCC in October had displayed before a Federal High Court in Lagos, a virtual projection of a Compact Disc with 51,933 pages analysis of the iPhone of popular Nigerian singer, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley.
The EFCC projected the virtual evidence through its second witness, Mr Augustine Anosike, a forensic analyst.
Anosike was still leading pieces of evidence in the trial of the defendant.
Naira Marley is facing 11 counts bordering on conspiracy, possession of counterfeit credit cards, and fraud.
The Nigerian singer was charged by the anti-graft agency on May 14, 2019.
He was, however, consequently, arraigned on May 20, 2019, before Justice Nicholas Oweibo.
Naira Marley had pleaded not guilty to all the charges levelled against him.
He was thereafter granted bail accordingly in the sum of two million naira, with two sureties in like sum.
The trial had since commenced in the case and the second prosecution witness who began his testimony shortly before the lockdown in 2020 following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, continued his evidence on Wednesday.
The witness, who resumed his testimony on Tuesday, also concluded his evidence after the virtual display.
The prosecution counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, had told the court during the last sitting that the prosecution only printed out hard copies of relevant portions of the exhibit, which is considered key to its case.
He had informed the court that a full version of the total analysis was contained in a compact disc.
The printed copies of the exhibit are, however, labelled ‘Exhibit F’ while the CD containing full analysis is ‘Exhibit F1’.
Punch reports that the court had granted the prosecution team leave to display the CD on a projector, to discharge its burden of proof as required by law.
Also on the last adjourned date, the witness had narrated how different text messages and chats containing credit card details, were exchanged between Naira Marley and another recipient identified as Yadd.
At the resumption of the trial on Wednesday, the witness reiterated portions of his earlier testimonies of October 26.
He also indicated the visual spots of those testimonies, on the screen of the projected CD.
For instance, the witness showed visual displays of the credit card numbers, chats, as well as incoming and outgoing short message services, which were analysed from the defendant’s iPhone.
The witness typically identified the “message trafficking” between the numbers +447426343432 and +447548061528.
On the whole, he told the court that the CD contained a total of 51,933 pages of the analysis conducted on the defendant device.
After the CD was displayed for about 45 minutes, the prosecutor then asked the witness to confirm if exhibits A and D, were vital elements of his analysis, and he replied in the affirmative.
But the defence counsel, Olalekan Ojo (SAN), during a cross-examination, first sought leave of court to apply for a variation of its order and prayed the court to take custody of the iPhone of the defendant who had been in the custody of the prosecution.
He stated that the Federal High Court is well capable of keeping the exhibits in its custody, adding that it would also create ease for the defence to apply for the exhibits if needed.
The court, therefore, noted the requests.
The defence asked, “As an experienced operative, are you aware that it is possible for a person other than the owner of a phone to have access to the use of that phone?”
The witness replied, “That will only be possible where the owner grants access.”
When the witness was asked who supplied him with the password to the iPhone, he told the court that the defendant provided the password to the investigating operatives who consequently transmitted the same to him for his analysis.
The EFCC had alleged that Naira Marley and his accomplices conspired to use different Access Bank ATM cards to defraud their victims.
It also alleged that the defendant used a bank credit card issued to another person, in a bid to obtain fraudulent financial gains.
The EFCC also said that the defendant possessed counterfeit credit cards belonging to different people, with intent to defraud which amounted to theft. The alleged offence contravenes the provisions of sections 1 23 (1) (b), 27 (1) and 33(9) of Cyber Crime (Prohibition) Prevention Act, 2015.
