Kaffy Ameh has finally addressed her feud with Davido.
In a new chat with Punch, the dance queen said she forgave the singer after he apologised to her husband, the famous drummer Pappy J. She also addressed the claims by other lesser-known dancers who accused her of not taking care of her dancers.
Recall that the drama started in October 2016, when the 36-year-old Magneto Dance Company CEO named Davido as one of the stars who continually disrespects dancers. According to Kaffy, Davido employed the services of her company but at the last minute, shoved them aside like they were nothing.
Davido denied the accusation with a claim that he never disrespected any dancer. And that gave some other dancers opportunity to accuse the dance queen of unfairness.
Now, Kaffy has addressed all this in a new chat with Punch. Here’s what she said:
On how dancers are being disrespected
“That issue wasn’t really about Davido alone. It is common with a lot of artistes who think that they are helping dancers by having them on stage with them. But we’re the ones actually helping them because their performances would be drab and colourless without dancers to spice things up. Davido’s case was just the straw that broke the camel’s back and I decided to speak up, not just for my sake alone, but because of other dancers too. Anyway, I have forgiven Davido because he apologised to my husband.”
On accusations that she treats dancers unfairly
“The allegation that I don’t take care of my dancers is totally false. The truth is that when you’re doing well, a lot of people will want to talk about you even if they don’t really know anything. You can imagine that I was trying to fight for dancers, yet some people who call themselves dancers were saying false things about me. I just focus on being me and being the best at my job. You can ask any of the people who work with me if I don’t take care of them. However, you need to understand that there are some organisations that we work with that may not pay us immediately after we have rendered services for them. In that case, it is not my fault if I can’t pay my dancers on time.”
