Davido Says He Paid £55,000 To Wait For Seats To Be Filled At His London Concert..

Nigerian Singer Davido says he had to pay £55,000 at his January concert that held at the O2 Arena for the show to start late.





The ‘Fall’ singer, who is currently on a tour in the United States, told New York’s DJ Ebro that he had to do so to avoid performing to a half-filled hall.


“I was scared though, because … first of all, you know how we Africans do, we’re always late, we take time,” he said in an interview with Hot 97 FM.


“They said I gotta get on stage by 8, and I said alright and then by 8 o’clock my boy come tell me that brother you can’t go on stage right now and I say what you mean, he said brother everybody is still walking around, I looked at the stadium, half empty. I was going crazy.”


He explained that he had to pay £55,000, which was the cost for a 55-minute extension.

“I’ll pay two hundred thousand pounds in this place. Me, the way I know my people, people want me to fail.
If I go on that stage that place is half empty, somebody will take that picture and that picture will go father than anything. I waited till that place was filled.
I waited for about an hour and thirty before we started. I’d rather pay the fine because people don’t want you to win. Negativity goes way farther than positivity.”


The 26-year-old singer, who described his father as his biggest fan, said his global success began when he decided to focus on Nigeria.


“When I was out here (in America) for like eight months, nothing really happened. But it was when I decided to finally go back home. When I got back home to do what I do, then people started sending me snaps that yo, I’m hearing your songs every day.”

    1. True. And by the time the stadium eventually gets full, the damage has already been done. Even if they post it on SM then, people will say it's a lie.

  6. His statement reeks of a lack of foresight and planning. Almost every artist playing a major arena appears late on stage. You don't just hire a venue for the duration of your show. You put in place contingency plans and you take out insurance as well to cover any unexpected delays, damages, no shows etc

    5. Olawealth are you sure you run a business?? You read yet you could not comprehend. No wonder Nigeria is in a big mess. All anon was trying to say is that in a civilised country you plan for every eventuality, so you don't pay emergency 55K or if you do you claim it back from your insurance. But I suppose your knowledge only reach assurance level. chai.
