Top Nigeria’s superstar Davido, born David Adedeji Adeleke, is unlikely to visit the country this weekend as scheduled.
The 26 year old musician was expected to perform at the launch of the Go Green Initiative which is aimed at protecting the country’s forest cover, health of users and the environment.
The concert was billed to take place at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe’s Area 47 on Friday December 5 and several local artists including Soldier Lucius Banda and the Black Missionaries were lined to spice the Go Green launch.
But our impeccable sources say the show which First Lady Madame Gertrude Mutharika was supposed to grace as guest of honour might either be postponed or cancelled completely as it clashes with a state function taking place on the same day at Kamuzu Palace.
“We wanted to have the First Lady Madame Gertrude Mutharika as the guest of honour at the concert. However, the launch has clashed with a state function at Kamuzu Palace on Friday as well meaning that the first lady cannot be present at two events taking place at the same time,” disclosed our source adding that discussions are underway with Davido’s manager Kamal Ajiboye to shift the show to Sunday or postpone it to a later date.
An American-born Nigerian recording artist, Davido has several awards to his credit. He won a BET Award, a Kora Award, a Channel O Music Video Award, a Ghana Music Award, a Nigeria Music Video Award, two MTV Africa Music Awards, two African Muzik Magazine Awards, three The Headies Awards, seven Nigeria Entertainment Awards plus two Dynamix All Youth Awards, among others.
His tracks Gobe, Skelewu, One of a Kind and the most recent one Aye have gained unequaled popularity at the moment across the country.
