A blogger and former aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Jackson Ude, has alleged musician Duncan Mighty of swindling him of over N3.6m.
Ude said the money was in respect of a show the musician was paid for but never attended.
The blogger took to Twitter to make the allegation.
He wrote, “I paid Duncan Mighty N3 million for Nkporo Youths Unity Concert that held December 30 2021, and additional N630k for flight tickets. He didn’t show up for the concert. Next I heard was a picture of him wrapped in bandages claiming accident while holding his cell phone.
“Duncan Mighty has become notorious for collecting money from show promoters and not showing up. He did that with a show in Uromi, Uyo and other places. I am not one who would want to deal with folks in the entertainment industry. Duncan should avoid my troubles and pay back NOW!” (sic)
Interestingly, talent manager Onugbu Okwuise also accused Duncan Mighty of the same offence.
Okwuise also wrote on Twitter, “Duncan also did this to me In July 2021 when I invited him for Arise Concert. In fact, when I put him on the bill a friend of mine warned me that he took his 2.5million and didn’t show up for the event But I didn’t listen hoping that since we all came from the same hood he will not do that to me.
“A few months later when I met Duncan in Lagos he was lying to me that he came for the event but he came late & the show had ended which angered me because me and my team was the last to leave the event ground. Over N2.8 million was wasted because of Duncan Mighty, the executive room that was paid for him and his manager in Ibom Icon, his feeding and transportation this guy refused to show up even when we were calling him he wasn’t picking up his calls.
“Meanwhile, we have a signed agreement with him ooo. I chose not to chase him again because last last we go jam for PH. But people dealing with him should just be very very careful, I don’t know why such a promising talent want to destroy what he has built over time. These past December I know another of my colleague he collected money form & didnt show up.” (sic)
Duncan Mighty has not responded to the allegations as of the time of filing this report.
