Nigerian performer and recording artiste, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, cancelled his performance at a concert scheduled to hold at the 35,000-capacity Stade Municipal de Lubumbashi in Congo after a fight ensued between fans and police.
The Dami Duro crooner took to his Snapchat account to announce that one of his opening acts (identity not revealed) got raped and the police got involved in the clash. Expressing relief that no life was lost, Davido said:
“So we didn’t perform I hope everyone got home safe. It was crazy mehn, “Just happy everybody is safe, no one got killed. Prayers to everybody that got hurt. “We are happy we got back safe, my band they scattered them anyway it’s all good. Still going to have a good time. ” he said. Davido also joked about needing bigger stadiums for his shows.
“When you are big, you are big!! I need bigger stadiums LOL.” He said. Meanwhile, Ayodeji Balogun, better known as Wizkid, also suffered similar fate as he was unable to perform at the Wireless festival in London. However, the organisers of the event blamed it on his inability to get a visa.
“Unfortunately due to a visa issue, Wizkid will not be able to perform today at Wireless Festival.”
