Davido Dazzles At Sold Out O2 Arena
28 January 2019 Entertainment
Sunday night, January 27, 2019, is one that will not be forgotten as Davido etched his name in the history books selling out the iconic O2 Arena and highlighting a vivid indication of his increasing dominance on the global scene.
The DMW boss marked a pivotal point in his career at his sold out headline concert at the 20,000 capacity London O2 Arena.
While a number of Nigerian artists have in the past performed at the smaller O2 stages, Wizkid remains the only one to have taken on the main O2 stage and successfully sold out his AfroRepublik concert in 2018.
The event kicked off with sets from various DJs including Tim Westwood and DJ Ecool who played some of the finest songs from home.
From Mayorkun to Peruzzi, Idowest, Dremo, Yonda and Zlatan, members of his DMW crew and affiliates all got shine time on the night getting the crowd warmed up for what was to come.
Watch Davido’s entrance below:
Performing a familiar set-list of his large catalog of hit anthems including songs like ‘Dami Duro’, ‘FIA’, ‘If’, ‘Fall’, ‘Assurance’, bringing his girlfriend, Chioma on stage as they shared a kiss, Davido served off back to back bangers during his over set.
There were also a few surprise appearances who joined Davido on stage including the likes of Jamaican superstar, Popcaan.
This was one concert Davido had long prepared for, one he had long wanted to accomplish and the night came to its close glamorously with Davido looking upon the 20,000 gathered crowd as they screamed loudly to his name.
The much anticipated concert indeed was how he had pictured it, perhaps even better, Davido had not only sold out the O2 Arena, but he had also left his mark at the historic British venue.
