Davido Returns to the Music Scene with a Historic World Cup Performance
The singer made a subtle but meaningful return to social media on Sunday, December 18, 2022, with a series of pictures on Instagram with his partner, Chioma. The pictures were seemingly used to announce that he would still be performing at the closing ceremony of the FIFA World Cup 2022 which was held in Qatar.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Great to see Davido performing on the big #FIFAWorldCup stage after his recent loss.”
Another said: “Very good to see Davido back after his terrible loss of his own.”
Fans of the “Fall” crooner thought he had canceled his performance because of the tragedy that befell his family.
Davido took to the stage to perform the World Cup anthem “Hayya Hayya” alongside Qatar singer, Aisha and Trinidad and Tobago singer, Cardona. His energetic performance was showered with praises and words of encouragement from fans and colleagues alike who admired his strength and professionalism.
He became the first Nigerian artist in history to perform at the main event of the World Cup. His performance came hours after Argentina lifted the golden trophy, beating France in a 4-2 penalty shootout.
