It’s no news that Davido had 12 days to sellout tickets for his Davido Live in Concert 2018. This was because of the late announcement of his concert in December. Well guess who still sold out his concert tickets? You’re damn right! He sold out his tickets in 12 days. Insane yeah? I guess so too.
On his announcement of his Davido Live In Concert 2018. Many people didn’t believe he’d sellout a large place like Eko Atlantic within a short period of time. I guess he shocked everyone. He took to his twitter to tell his fans that he sold more than 15000 tickets.
So now let’s talk about how the show went and all the highlights of the event. Well Davido Live In Concert started a little after 12a.m. We don’t understand what the problem is in Nigeria with organizing a show and starting on time. Davido Live In Concert isn’t the only one. We also witnessed Simi’s concert, Burna’s and Wizkid’s. They all started pretty later than 12a.m. Even Burna Live was slated for 7pm, didn’t start until it was almost 1a.m.
From about 12a.m, next rated artistes were given the opportunity to perform. It was a great platform for new artistes. We all know that Davido likes giving opportunities to new artistes. He earlier said that “we rise by lifting others” when he won the 2017 BET award for the best African artiste.
At about 2 a.m, Davido finally came out. And yes, he came out in style. He came right from the top of the stage. The entrance was jaw dropping but some critics said he was trying to copy Cassper Nyovest. Did we mention that DJ Ecool was not at his best yesterday? If he really was, the show would’ve been some madness. DJ Ecool really dulled the vibes of the crowd. Thank God for DJ Neptune that came to the rescue. In 2 minutes of handling the wheels, the crowd was alive.
Did we also mention that Davido gave a fan one million Naira? Yes he absolutely did and we’ll tell you the reason. At a point when Davido was performing, he and his crew were spraying money. It literally rained money. The crowd went wild and some girls fell down. A particular guy in the crowd help the girls stand up instead of picking the money. This impressed him and he called him on stage. He told his crew to give him a million Naira instantly. That’s absolutely fantastic innit?
Artistes that performed at Davido Live In Concert include: Danny S, Zlatan Ibile, Lil kesh, Iceprince Zamani, Duncan Mighty, Reminisce, Oladips, 9ice, Naira Marley ,Mc Galaxy, Burna Boy, Peruzzi, Yonda, Dremo, Idowest and Mayorkun.
They all gave electrifying performances and made sure the fans enjoyed every bit of their performances.
Finally at the Davido Live In Concert, Davido brought out his 2 daughters and a cameo from Chioma his lover.
Overall we’ll rate this show 6.5/10 because of poor organization and DJ Ecool who slowed down the vibe. Overall it was a great event.
