In addition to other artists, Davido is scheduled to perform at the Mundial’s closing ceremony on Sunday.

Bernard Colignon, a player agent certified by FIFA, shared a video of Davido on his Instagram story on Thursday.

Alongside Ghanaian musician Stonebwoy, Davido could be seen hanging out with Bernard in the video.

Following the devastating death of his adored son Ifeanyi in October, this will be Davido’s second outing in the public.

The first time the music star was seen in public after the untimely demise of his son was when he attended the swearing-in of his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke on November 27, 2022 as the governor of Osun State, Nigeria.

Davido’s planned performance at the World Cup grand finale on Sunday will be the singer’s first concert since the demise of his son.


David Adedeji Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, is an American-Nigerian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He was born on November 21, 1992.

His music fuses worldwide pop with traditional African themes.

Davido released “Dami Duro,” the second single from his debut studio album Omo Baba Olowo, in 2012 and went on to win the Next Rated Award at The Headies (2012).

He subsequently established the record company Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), which has signed artists like Mayorkun, Liya, Peruzzi, and Dremo.

In July 2016, Sony’s RCA Records and Davido agreed to a record deal. His five-track EP Son of Mercy, which included the singles “Gbagbe Oshi,” “How Long,” and “Coolest Kid in Africa,” was released in October 2016.

Due to problems with creative autonomy, Davido renegotiated his contract with Sony in April 2017. Later that year, he released five songs, including “If” and “Fall.”

While “Fall” became the longest-charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history, “If” sparked global social media engagement.
