Nigerian Afrobeats star David Adeleke aka ‘Davido’ shut down Lagos with his “TimelessConcert”, two years after his “A Decade Of Davido” concert.
A much-anticipated detour from his global detour, the concert was hosted by the duo of actor and digital creator, Mr. Macaroni and actress KieKie at the renowned Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS).
As usual, the singer pulled a mammoth crowd for the concert and he did not disappoint the attendees as he dished some of his hit songs to the excitement of his fans.
Set on an elaborately designed and brightly lit stage, the show opened with performances from the current crop of stars that are carving a niche for their sounds.
Stars like Khaid, Majeeed, Spyro, Odumodublvck, and Starboy Terri thrilled the audience with their different anthems.
Iyanya had the concertgoers singing along to his hit single “Mr Oreo.” May D and B-Red also performed their classics in front of the teeming fans.
Davido’s entrance was greeted by loud cheers from his fans in the packed show. Decked in an all-white ensemble, OBO as he is fondly called proceeded to regale them with songs from his ever-growing catalogue of hits.
Classics like “Gobe”, “Aye”, “Skelewu”, and “Dami Duro” and recent hits from his “Timeless” album like “Over Dem All”, “Unavailable”, “Feel” and more.
There were loud cheers when Asake, Mayorkun, and The Cavemen joined Davido on stage for their respective hits together.
One noticeable feature about the Adeleke family is that they never fail to support each other when the need arises.
On Sunday morning, a video circulated on the Nigerian internet space showing Davido’s uncle, who is also the Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, heading to Lagos to attend the concert.
Sure enough, Ademola Adeleke, fondly known as the ‘Dancing Governor’, was present at the occasion and he grooved to some of the songs of his nephew.
Nigerian journalist/publisher, businessman, and motivational speaker, and a close friend of the Adeleke family, Dele Momodu, graced the event, as well as legendary afro-juju singer, Sir Shina Peters. Also in attendance was Davido’s cousin and singer, B-Red.
Food was also in surplus, according to a tweet by popular Lagos OAP, Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi.
She said: “First concert I’ve been to where the food (on the tables) is nice. Hot jollof & chicken, Spaghetti, small chops, suya etc #TimelessConcert Those ‘event halls’ should take note.” (sic)
