Davido to perform at 2022 Qatar World Cup closing ceremony


Pop star Davido will be returning to the stage to perform at the closing ceremony of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

This was confirmed by Hong Kong businessman Stephen Hung who shared his excitement via a post on his Instagram page on Thursday, December 8.

Sharing a picture of the singer, he wrote, “So happy my bro @davido confirmed he will perform at the World Cup Qatar closing ceremony. Can’t wait to see him there.”

Davido was set to initially perform at the opening ceremony but could not make it due to the loss of his son, Ifeanyi Adeleke.

The 30-year-old, who did the World Cup theme song ‘Better Together’ in collaboration with Trinidad Cardona and Aisha, will be performing at the closing of the tournament on December 18.

Artistes like Shakira and Jennifer Lopez have also performed at FIFA World Cup closing ceremonies.

Meanwhile, this will be Davido’s first stage appearance since he went off the social radar.

He made his first public appearance after his son Ifeanyi’s death a couple of weeks ago when he came out to support his uncle, Ademola Adeleke, during his inauguration ceremony as the governor of Osun State.

The police confirmed that Ifeanyi drowned in a swimming pool at his father’s residence in the Banana Island area of Lagos State.

The boy had only celebrated his third birthday days before the tragic incident.
