One Uber driver has taken to twitter to call out singer Duncan Mighty who he took to the airport two weeks ago and since then the singer has refused to pay him for the ride . Duncan Wene Mighty Okechukwu simply known as Duncan Mighty, is a Nigerian musician, singer, and music producer from Obio-Akpor, Rivers State.
Though his musical style demonstrates a high-level of genre versatility, it is also heavily influenced by the sounds and culture of his people as most of his songs are sung in his native Ikwerre dialect of Igbo language.
According to Ogbogu, Duncan on getting to the airport, promised to transfer his bill to him as he claimed he did not have cash on him. Victor says he has since sent his account details to Duncan with texts and calls, appealing for his money but the singer is yet to pay him.
Duncan Mighty is yet to respond to his call out. See Victor’s tweet below.
Recall that sometime in August Dunca mighty’s fans criticised him for bowing to Davido when the pop Artiste visited him in Port Harcourt. later on his manager Michael Gabriel came out to explain why his artiste prostrated for Davido during their recent meeting.
Last week, Duncan Mighty shared a video of him bowing to Davido on his Instagram page. Fans of the “Fake Love” crooner criticised him for belittling himself before a 25-year-old singer, who met him in the music business.
In the video, the 34-year-old Ikwere born musician appreciated Davido for doing a collaboration with him, saying the new song would open up the entire Niger Delta region and set the space for an unprecedented growth of entertainment in the region.
Explaining why Duncan Mighty bowed for Davido, his manager, Gabriel, was quoted by Punch as saying that it was out of sheer happiness.
He stated, “Duncan was just happy to have Davido in the Niger Delta; it was the first time he would visit for a video shoot.
“How many top artists come to Port Harcourt? Everyone goes to Dubai, South Africa and other places to shoot videos.
“It is a big deal for someone like Davido to come to Port Harcourt and for Duncan Mighty to collaborate with him as well.
“He didn’t plan to bow to anyone; he was just excited. But people misinterpreted his gesture. Sometimes, there is no need to react to things like this because you will only give people more reasons to talk.
“When I mentioned it to him, he just focused on other things and wanted to know the next thing on the agenda.”
“Criticism drives traffic to a brand and it has helped us. We have been in the news for the past two months; so, people can continue to talk while we continue to trend.
“There is no week Duncan doesn’t have more than 1,000 new followers on Instagram. If you do something, people must talk. Pastor Enoch Adeboye suffers criticism despite being a man of God. Former President Goodluck Jonathan did his best, yet he was criticised.
“Duncan’s schedule is tight, as he is everywhere now. I receive calls from almost every part of the world from people who want to do one thing or the other with him and they are ready to pay whatever amount.
“I last saw Duncan three weeks ago before I did again on Thursday. After the video shoot in Port Harcourt, he followed Davido in his private jet to Lagos almost immediately.”
