On Friday Night, top award winning Nigerian singer, Davido and his manager, Kamal Ajiboye were robbed at gun-point in South Africa, an experience they say has left them traumatized.
In an exclusive interview with Nigerian Entertainment Today, Kamal Ajiboye who was with Davido at the time of the robbery narrated the disturbing ordeal.
“We had just arrived in SA yesterday evening, so we stopped for traffic light, next thing, they crossed us and two of them came out with guns and they used their guns to smash our glass.
The robbery happened at Greyston Shopping center, Moloko Hotel Junction. They took my bag pack, i had $45,000, David had $60,000, we were also with the CEO of Mcomm Solution Chidi Okeke who also had $80,000 on him. They took his passport, his Rolex, my Rolex sky dweller.
You know, we travel all the time with different currencies, so taking our bags is the least we expected.
I’m in pain, I’m still shocked, they hit my leg with the guns, we just thank God for our lives that we are all Ok for now.”
Davido earlier on took to his Twitter to recount his ordeal. Below is what he wrote;
“Thank God for my life…. If not for him.. E for be different story … My daughters face was flashing through my eyes the whole time. Still got love for South Africa.
Dem niggas got me for 55 thousand dollars cash!! Crazy!!! And 2 rolexes !! FICK.
Right in the middle of sandton. Never traveling without my gang again!!!!
I’ll never go another morning without praying.”
According to reports, it’s not the first time Nigerian artistes are being robbed in South Africa. In July, Okeke and others, including a popular producer were robbed at gun point while using automated cash points.
