Sensational performer, Davido pulled a massive crowd, justifying his position as the King of Afrobeats, when he mounted the stage at the just-ended Are We African Yet (A.W.A.Y) festival at the State Farm Arena, Atlanta Georgia.
The lineup included E Cool, King Promise, Lo Jay, Mayor Kun, Musa Keys, Spinall, TXC, and rising Nigerian star Victony.
All of these performers brought on their top game to produce a memorable musical experience for the revellers.
“A.W.A.Y. Fest was a MOVIE! One of the most magical nights of my life, selling out State Farm Arena with my family and friends is what we do this for. TIMELESS moments. If you were there in Atlanta, you witnessed history; if you missed it… we may be working on something massive for 2024, so stay tapped in!” Davido wrote in a Facebook post.
Davido, now a proud father of twins, was spotted with his wife, Chioma Adeleke. It was the first time the two were making a public appearance since they welcomed their newborns in October 2023.
Celebrating diversity, the festival served as a platform for established stars and provided emerging talents with an opportunity to shine.
The festival, conceived by Davido, promotes cultural exportation and collaboration between Africa and the global music scene.
Davido, known for his collaborations with U.S.-based artists, is described as a “bridge connecting continents through the universal language of music.”
The Fall hitmaker who turned 31 recently, has also announced the “Timeless Tour” starting in Abuja, Nigeria, on December 14, 2023, and expected to end on December 24, in Lagos.
In July, he performed at the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., and continued to the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Canada.
The A.W.A.Y. Festival, which should have happened in November last year, was postponed due to the death of his son.
Having found some solace in the arrival of his twins, Davido will be looking forward to bigger news when the winners of the 2024 Grammys are announced in February next year.
He is being considered in the Best Global Music Performance, Best African Music Performance, and Best Global Music Album categories, together with Burna Boy and other top African acts.
