34-yr-old Port Harcourt-based artiste Duncan Mighty drew the ire of music fans when he was pictured prostrating for 25-yr-old artiste Davido during the latter's visit Port Harcourt.
Duncan Mighty attracted criticisms from those who felt he was belittling himself before a 25-year-old singer who met him in the music business after sharing the video of him bowing to Davido on his Instagram page.
BZBD gathered that Duncan Mighty was seen in the video appreciating Davido for doing a collaboration with him, saying the new song would open up the entire Niger Delta region and set the space for an unprecedented growth of entertainment in the region.

In his explanation of why Duncan Mighty prostrated himself for Davido, his manager, Michael Gabriel, said it was out of sheer happiness. He stated, “Duncan was just happy to have Davido in the Niger Delta; it was the first time he would visit for a video shoot. How many top artistes come to Port Harcourt? Everyone goes to Dubai, South Africa and other places to shoot videos.
"It is a big deal for someone like Davido to come to Port Harcourt and for Duncan Mighty to collaborate with him as well. He didn’t plan to bow to anyone; he was just excited. But people misinterpreted his gesture. Sometimes, there is no need to react to things like this because you will only give people more reasons to talk. When I mentioned it to him, he just focused on other things and wanted to know the next thing on the agenda.”
Gabriel said they cared less about the criticism Duncan Mighty had got for his recent gesture to Davido, saying it was a blessing in disguise.
He added, “Criticism drives traffic to a brand and it has helped us. We have been in the news for the past two months; so, people can continue to talk while we continue to trend. There is no week
Duncan doesn’t have more than 1,000 new followers on Instagram. If you do something, people must talk. Pastor Enoch Adeboye suffers criticism despite being a man of God. Former President Goodluck Jonathan did his best, yet he was criticised.”
Gabriel claims that Duncan Mighty has become so busy that he also now struggles to see him, even as his manager. He said, “Duncan’s schedule is tight, as he is everywhere now. I receive calls from almost every part of the world from people who want to do one thing or the other with him and they are ready to pay whatever amount. I last saw Duncan three weeks ago before I did again on Thursday. After the video shoot in Port Harcourt, he followed Davido in his private jet to Lagos almost immediately.”
