Lagos State Drags Davido and AY to Court | See Why

The Lagos State Government has taken necessary steps in tackling high-profile tax defaulters in the state and ensuring high level of compliance with its tax laws.

As part of this steps, the state government has moved against some celebrities in the state, who are alleged to be tax evaders despite their earnings from their business.

A court paper, indicated that the state government had dragged sensational singer, David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, before the court for alleged tax evasion.

Also, it was discovered that the state had equally moved against popular comedian, Ayo Makun, better known as AY, for allegedly failing to pay tax.

LIRS stated, “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.”
