Lati, the bouncer and aide to music star Davido, reportedly compensated the singer’s fan whom he slapped with N200k.

A few days ago, Lati made headlines when a video of him assaulting Davido’s fans surfaced. He assaulted two fans who wanted to take a video with Davido. In the first video, Lati punched a fan for taking pictures with the singer at an event. In another video, Lati landed a heavy slap on another male fan who tried to approach Davido.

According to reports, Lati allegedly compensated the fan for the assault with N200k. A screenshot of the N200k credit alert is circulating online, with reports claiming that Lati reached out to apologize for his actions.

However, many netizens remain skeptical, suggesting that the fan could have received more compensation if he had pursued legal action against Lati.

Last year, at Mohbad’s Candlelight ceremony, Davido made headlines for knocking a fan’s phone while attempting to capture him. During his Timeless Concert, a fan rushed the stage, prompting Davido to prepare for a physical altercation. Security intervened, averting potential confrontation.
