10 Iconic Stages Davido Has Headlined



10 Iconic Stages Davido Has Headlined |

Famous singer Davido is one of the musicians who helped make Afrobeats popular around the world. Davido talked about his early career on The Bridge interview. He became famous when he was still a teenager. Davido has headlined so many stages and events.

Davido said he performed for a huge crowd that filled a stadium in Mali and another big venue in France. These big shows early in his career show how he became one of the most important African musicians.

Here are 10 iconic stages Davido has headlined

Davido made history in a few ways! First, he was the very first musician from Nigeria to be featured in a World Cup theme song. The song was called “Hayya Hayya,” and it was the official song for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He sang it with two other artists, AISHA and Trinidad Cardona. But that wasn’t all!

Davido also performed the song live at the closing ceremony of the World Cup. This made him the first Nigerian artist to ever perform at the World Cup final. The ceremony took place at a giant stadium in Qatar called Lusail Stadium, which could hold a whopping 88,000 people!

Davido keeps breaking records. In 2017, he achieved something amazing: he became the very first Nigerian musician to sell out a huge concert all by himself at a place called the Arena.

This venue is massive and can hold 20,000 people! But get this: that wasn’t the only time he sold out the arena. Davido did it again two more times after that first concert, proving how popular he is.

Davido feels a close connection to Atlanta because that’s the city where he was born. Performing there is always special for him and the fans. The venue he plays at is called the State Farm Arena, a giant place that can hold 16,000 people.

During his “Timeless Tour,” Davido had a major concert in France! He was the main performer at the Accor Arena, a huge venue that holds 20,000 people.

The crowd went wild for Davido’s performance; he played his hit songs, and it was an unforgettable night for everyone there.

Afrobeats music is a big hit in Houston, Texas! One of the hottest Afrobeats artists, Davido, performed there as part of his “Timeless Tour.” The concert was a huge success and sold out all 19,000 seats at the Toyota Centre. That’s a lot of fans who came out to see Davido live.

Davido has achieved something that only a few other Nigerian musicians have done. He has performed as the main act at a giant concert venue in Washington, D.C., called the Capital One Arena. This place is massive and can hold a crowd of 20,000 people.

Davido made history in July 2023! He became the first musician ever from Nigeria to sell out a giant concert venue in Canada called the Scotia Bank Arena.

This arena is huge, fitting 16,000 people, and Davido sold every single ticket. That’s an amazing accomplishment!

8. 2017 AFCON Opening Ceremony

In 2017, Davido kicked off the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Gabon in style! He wasn’t alone, though; he shared the stage with other famous musicians like Flavour and Akon. It must have been an amazing concert to open up the big soccer competition.

In 2017, Davido’s hit songs “IF,” “Fall,” and “FIA” were super popular all over Africa. He became a superstar across the continent! This was clear when a huge crowd of 60,000 fans came to see him perform in Mali. That’s a lot of fans!

Davido’s concert in Sierra Leone in 2017 was a massive success! The National Stadium was packed with over 50,000 fans there to see him perform.
