About a few weeks ago, a report had it that DMW‘s boss Davido slapped Kiss Daniel‘s manager Oluwatumininu Lawrence at Davido’s City of David concert in Lagos. Ever the news broke out, we don’t know who is saying the truth between Davido or Kiss Daniel, although both stars have unfollowed each-other on social media, and Davido himself has come out to denies the allegation on his brand image.
As the situation unfolds, one of a most respected lawyer in the creative industry, Akinyemi Ayinoluwa have some interesting fact to say about the slapping saga between Tumi Lawrence, Kiss Daniel, and Davido.
1. Oluwatumininu Lawrence expressed his disgust on twitter and Instagram two weeks after he got slapped and physically assaulted at Davido’s ‘City of David’ concert on December 27th, 2018.
3. Kiss hailed Tumi, his manager, & supported him in public and mentioned that he would not endorse any violation on the person of any member of his team.
6. 10th of January, 2019, Kiss Daniel, sacks Tumi via Instagram Post through his imprint FLY BOY INC. He announced new manager and PR.
7. “Flyboy Inc is not responsible for any statement issued by any party, therefore please disregard any unverified stories making the rounds on social media,
“Fly Boy Inc holds other artistes, staff and industry personnel in high regard.”
Again, this Davido slap scandal typifies how unforgiving the industry is. Tumi got slapped by an ‘untouchable’. He cried foul. Kiss momentarily supported him
My source confirms that Kiss pitched his tent with his new manager to help remedy what is left of his relationship with DAVIDO. He also has a show to sell in April, 2019, and is hopeful that DAVID will help
It is still a ‘dog eat dog’ in an industry where loyalty is a hard sell…. The industry is filled with SHARKS..
