The Lagos State Government has launched a campaign to clam down on high profile tax defaulters.
Notably, the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) has reportedly instigated a lawsuit against David Adeleke aka Davido who has not been able to make proper remission of tax on his earnings. The DMW boss and popular comedian, AY were allegedly dragged to court over tax evasion.
“Davido, who has record deals with Sony Music Entertainment and endorsement agreements with various companies in Nigeria, has not filed his tax returns or remit any taxes to the Lagos State Government,” a source said.
Also, Davido had recently declared his team grossed half a billion naira (500,000,000) from his December concert.
A reliable government source revealed that Davido had defended his action, claiming that he paid taxes to Osun State since he is an indigene of the state.
