Scores of netizens have taken to social media to express their joy over the news that Davido will perform at the closing ceremony of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The likes of BTS’ K-pop superstars Jeon Jungkook, and Qatari singer Fahad Al-Kubaisi, already took the stage to thrill thousands of spectators in the opening ceremony.
Davido was scheduled to perform the “Hayya Hayya (Better Together)” Official World Cup song with American singer, Trinidad Cardona, and Japanese singer Aisha.
However, due to the demise of his son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, the superstar was absent at the Al Bayt Stadium in Qatar, where the opening ceremony was held.
Fans will however see their dreams come through because the singer is said to be ready to perform in the closing ceremony of the football tournament.
This news was made public by Stephen Hung, a Hong Kong millionaire, who took to his Instagram story to post:
“So happy for my bro @davido confirmed he will be performing at the World Cup Qatar closing ceremony. Can’t wait to see him there.”
A Nigerian influencer also confirmed the story.
