The popular Nigerian artiste and DMW boss Davido has just achieved another milestone in his music 🎶 career as he sells out 20,000 seating capacity in the O2 arena in London.
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.
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.
And when Davido announced shortly after that his eyes was set on achieving a similar feat, very few were in doubt that this would be another ticked box in his career moves.’We rise by lifting others” is one slogan that has defined Davido’s blueprint over the years with his support of a number of talents on his platform and on his biggest night, he was yet again true to his words with a number of opening performances from his proteges.
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.
