While a number of Nigerian contemporary artistes have been able to penetrate the UK’s receptive musical scene and headline at smaller 02 venues, until Sunday night, January 27, Wizkid was the only Nigerian contemporary artiste to have headlined and sold out the magnificent 20,000 capacity 02 Arena.
Davido has also in the past done a number of venues in the UK, but last night, he upped the ante and just like Wizkid, sold out his first headline concert at the prestigious 02 Arena. Not only did he sell out the venue, but he also shut it down.
From the impressive supporting acts to Davido’s epic entrance and energetic performances, here’s how fans on social media are reacting to the pop star’s 02 Arena concert.
