Nigerian artist Davido has once again stirred up controversy, this time by threatening to sue K24TV, a media house owned by the family of former Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta. The threat came in response to an April 1 post by the media house that implied the singer had been arrested at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA). The media house later clarified that the post was an April Fool’s Day joke.

The incident sparked a wave of outrage across Kenya’s online space, particularly on Facebook and other social media platforms. Kenyans came out in large numbers to castigate Davido for his threat against the media house. The online community expressed their displeasure at the artist’s reaction to what was intended as a harmless prank.

“Davido’s threat to sue K24TV is an overreaction to a harmless April Fool’s Day joke,” said one user. “This is not the first time he has reacted aggressively to criticism or jokes at his expense. It’s high time he learned to take a joke.”

The incident has also sparked a debate about the limits of humor and the responsibility of media houses in their reporting. While some users argued that K24TV’s joke was in poor taste, others defended the media house, stating that Davido’s reaction was unwarranted.

“Davido needs to understand the spirit of April Fool’s Day and take things lightly,” said another user. “Threatening to sue a media house for a joke shows a lack of understanding and respect for freedom of expression.”
