Davido won’t be performing at D’banj’s UK Concert

Davido has released a statement explaining that he will not be performing at D’Banj’s UK concert, set to hold later today in London. Read his statement below;

I regret to let you know that I will not be performing along side my most respected big brother and friend D’BANJ at the scheduled show of August 27, 2012 in London.
I am both a Nigerian citizen, as well as an American citizen, I carry both the Nigerian and the American passports. As an American citizen, I do not require a visa to enter the United Kingdom, however I require a work permit in the UK for any paid performance such as the scheduled August 27, 2012 in London, that is the law in the United Kingdom.
I applied for a work permit at the British Embassy in Abuja/Lagos but unfortunately up till the close of business on Friday August 24, 2012 I was unable to obtain a work permit, as a result I have to cancel my performance and my trip to the United Kingdom altogether.
I apologize for the inconvenience and the disappointment, but be rest assured that I will make it up to you all on a future date. You will agree with me that it is better to be law abiding at all times and in every jurisdiction.
Finally, please go out en mass to support the Koko Master (D’BANJ) and have a wonderful night on August 27, 2012.
Warm Regards
David Adedeji Adeleke aka DAVIDO
You’ve heard it from Davido himself, so people let’s support D’Banj. Hammersmith Apollo is the place to be @ 1900 hours today (August 27, 2012). Celebrate your Bank Holiday in style
