Nigerian singer and music executive, David Adeleke better known as Davido, has canceled his upcoming concert, ‘DMW Live in Concert’ supposedly earmarked December 26 at Eko Hotel & Suite, Lagos.
The much-anticipated concert has been called off by Davido’s label and the organizing body due to rise of COVID-19 cases in Lagos.
According to Davido, in a post on his Instagram page, though the decision to cancel the event is the most difficult thing to do, it is the best as the safety and well-being of his fans is paramount to him.
“Following increased and overwhelming concerns with the rise of Covid-19 cases in Lagos, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming ‘Davido Presents DMW Live In Concert’ scheduled to take place on Dec 28th. The health and well-being of our fans, employees and artists is of paramount importance so whilst we are disappointed, we know it is the right thing to do.
“Thank you to everyone that purchased tables. Your support brought us way closer to sold out status than we expected in a very uncertain time! We look forward to bringing you a DMW live in concert in the very near future. In the meantime, stay safe, sanitised and socially distanced. Thank you for your understanding and Merry Christmas in advance!”
