Nigerian Superstar Davido who is scheduled for a two legged show in South Africa will be out to bring back the party mood to ‘Durbanites’ who have in the past two weeks been edgy with rampaging violence in the Southern suburbs of the city.
The singer performs at Umlazi’s Eyadini Lounge, a venue that has made its name for the best outdoor entertainment and of course it’s meat culture in Kwazulu Natal.
Organisers of the event told The Inspired Africa this week that they were ready for the Nigerian who has risen to become an international phenomenon.
“He will be performing in Johannesburg Friday and comes here Sunday. People know that we are the best in this industry and when they come to Eyadini they must expect nothing but the best of Eyadini as well as the best from Davido,” said spokesperson only identified as Zama.
He said revelers’ security was being tightened to ensure a flawless party.
Davido will be supported at the gig by actor and singer Riky Rick, OkMalumKoolKat, Oskido, SPHEctacula & Naves, Benny Maverick & Dlaldla Mshunqisi, DJ Bongz, Distruction Boyz, DJ Feel, TouchOfSoul, DJ Wobbly, DJ Muntu, DJ Meech, DJ 8Hours, DJ Webster, DJ Gukwa, Thobzela and Sjerere.
The event will kick off at midday with DJs rocking the turntables while the best of shisanyama will be saved for meet lovers.
Tickets for the gig are slated for ZAR250 for general entry while VIP will cost ZAR500.
The Sunday affair will be one that is destined for greatness for outdoor lovers with the winter colds deserting the coastal city, the party mood is expected.
While the setting and the season all combine well for a memorable outing for people of diverse backgrounds, it will be the potpourri of artistes and of course the meet culture that will sweep any visitor from under their feet.
Davido being a seasoned performer who has bulldozed his way onto the international scene, it would be pointless to spend a joule of energy on worrying about his set yet the doppelganger comes in the form of his expectation on his audience.
Yet that too will not be worth worrying about as it is almost certain designer shops are enjoying brisk business selling Gucci and Versace among other classy labels Davido is known to adore.
It will sure be a well needed dose of entertainment as South Africa heads to summer.
