Davido held his long-awaited concert at the O2 Arena on Sunday night and by all accounts it looks like it was a huge success.
The DMW boss packed-out the 20,000-capacity arena for a concert that showcased his many hits and cemented his top spot on afrobeats’ global stage.
The show kicked off with Tim Westwood and DJ Ecool spinning to get the crowd warmed up. DMW acts and friends like Mayorkun, Peruzzi, Idowest, Dremo, Yonda, Tomi Agape and Zlatan each got to perform as well.
Finally, after a bit of wait, Idris Elba himself came out to introduce Davido—who made his entrance by soaring above the audience one a suspended platform to perform “Aye.”
The Nigerian superstar, who was backed by the Compozers, ran through his many hits from across the years throughout the night—”Fall,” “If,” “FIA,” “Dami Duro,” and many more. He even brought out his girlfriend Chioma for “Assurance.”
The big guest of the night, aside from Idris Elba, was dancehall heavyweight Popcaan, who has collaborated with Davido a few times.
In all of the night’s videos you can hear the energy and electricity of the crowd as they sing along to every word.
