Davido and AY charge to court find out why

The Lagos state g​
overnment has reportedly fileda lawsuit against singer Davido and comedian ,

AY Makun, for tax evasion. A report by Punch

says the entertainers have had a long-running

battle with the Lagos Internal Revenue Service

(LIRS) over alleged tax evasion. Davido was

reportedly charged before a Lagos high court in

July 2017 while AY was said to have been

charged to court in 2016 for failing to file his

tax returns.

Davido is said to have told LIRS officials that he

pays his taxes to Osun state government since

he is an indigene of the state while AY said he

makes his tax payments to Ondo state . An

official of the state government who spoke on

the matter said

“Remember that Davido said he made

N500m from his N30bn concert

recently. ​
We must know how much he

paid to the LIRS. AY too said the same

thing. The comedian claimed to be

paying his taxes to Ondo State, where

he hails from. It seems these celebrities

don’t understand that the tax law

stipulates that you must pay your tax to

your state of residence. Anyway, we are

already in court. Others will soon

appear in court if they don’t obey the

state tax law. You can’t be making

money in Lagos and refuse to pay tax.”
