Nigerian musician Davido, also known as David Adedeji Adeleke, has announced his intention to take legal action against K24 after they ran a story alleging his arrest at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Monday.

He expressed displeasure with the article, particularly as it was presented as part of the broadcaster’s April Fools’ Day content.

Davido stated that he has already contacted his legal representatives to handle the issue.

“I’d also like to note that I have never been arrested by anyone in any country for any crime in the world. Not my home Nigeria, my home America, or any of the hundreds of countries I’ve made home throughout my career.

“I find the fabrication of allegations of such international crimes extremely irresponsible regardless of the light of ‘April Fools’, and my lawyer is seeking legal recourse against the media parties responsible for generating this misinformation,” he stated.

He emphasized that the accusations had sullied his reputation and business, asserting that he had not faced any arrest as claimed in the report.

Additionally, he recognized that numerous individuals were troubled by the situation, reaching out to him for clarification.

Significantly, his response follows the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) raising concerns over a news article published by K24 earlier in the week.

In response, the media organization clarified that the article was intended as part of its April Fools’ Day content.

“Were you fooled,” the media house posted in reaction to the online uproar.
