Davido was one of the artistes that was headlined to do this year's edition of the Music Meets Runway showcase. The idea behind the showcase was to have a perfect fusion of 2 elements of entertainment-Music & Fashion. It's something like the Rip the Runway, fashion & music showcase done in America. 

This year's edition had on the bill, Davido, May D, Wizkid, Efya, Iyanya, Taikoon, Ajebutter 23, Naeto C, Burna Boy & D banj. While all the others performed, one name that was hyped but didn't perform was the only Omo Baba Olowo himself Davido. We heard, the 19 year old musician, was paired to perform with a young upcoming designer- Olayinka Fashola of Moofa, and the pair was supposed to open the show on the D-day. Only for the organizers to first shift their performance to 5th and later the last, but still yet no show from Davido.

Moofa's showcase had to come out 2nd to the last, just before Lanre DaSilva's showcase and instead of Davido, K-Switch who was not part of the MMR 2012 billing before had to take his place. The reason given officially was that he had suddenly developed a 'throat infection', though he was upstairs in Eko Hotel. Throat infection? Yes that was the official excuse given, but according to some unconfirmed gist, the young crooner couldn't perform because he was too far gone to perform, so he had to be replaced by K-switch.

We would love to have a proper confirmation of the true reason he could not perform from his management.

Mmmmmm too far gone? On what alcohol, weed or harder stuff? Davido should take it easy please. He's doing well and he should protect his reputation.
