Davido’s Congo concert cancelled after rape, violence

David Adeleke, performer and recording artiste popularly known as Davido, is the latest Nigerian celebrity to suffer a concert setback.

The entertainer was scheduled to perform at the 35,000-capacity Stade Municipal de Lubumbashi in Congo, but had to cancel his show after a fight ensued between fans.
According to the details shared on the Dami Duro crooner’s Snapchat account, one of his opening acts (identity not revealed) got raped and the police got involved in the clash.
“So we didn’t perform I hope everyone got home safe. It was crazy mehn,” he said.
Expressing relief that no life was lost, Davido joked about needing bigger stadiums for his shows.
“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.
“When you are big, you are big!! I need bigger stadiums LOL.”
Ayodeji Balogun, another Nigerian artiste 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.”
