Over eight-months ago, Davido was called into a new challenge by fans of his countryman, fellow afropop top performer and leader of Starboy Records, Wizkid after the latter performed to a capacity filled AfroRepublik concert held at the 20,000 capacity London 02 Arena, May 26th 2018.
Being challenged to prove his claim as the “Baddest” in this part of the industry and ever assured his fans of realizing such feat subsequently, the leader of DMW and 30 Billion Gang, David Adedeji Adeleke, finally came through as a fulfilled Africa’s biggest performer and afropop music export as he, on 27th of January, 2019, equaled the so-called record by an African artist – set by Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun aka Wizkid.
Topping to that, he has to do this alone and thus, became the first ever artiste within the Afrobeats scene to solely host and sell out a show at the 20,000 capacity 02 Arena in London, United Kingdom.
The superstar did shut down the London 02 Arena with an electrifying performance which rocked the four-walls of the indoor hall as everyone present were not able to be in their ‘best behaviour.’
The 02 Arena which has hosted iconic events from the likes of Beyonce, Drake and other international superstars played host to the Atlanta born Nigerian superstar over the last weekend, and it was indeed a time to always remember as the audience were totally amazed with the classy showing.
It is an achievement the son to Nigeria billionaire businessman will keep to his history book.
He’s really the “Baddest” and we share his achievement with a congratulation gesture.
