On Nigeria’s Instagram, Davido and Chioma W’Cup photos gain the most likes.
David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, is a prominent Nigerian musician who has achieved another career milestone.
In addition to collecting honors, Davido is also breaking barriers and making history on social media. On Monday, one of his photos taken with his partner Chioma at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar became the Nigerian Instagram post with the most likes, garnering over 1.7 million.
On Sunday, Davido played at the FIFA World Cup 2022’s closing ceremony in Qatar. Ahead of the event, the award-winning musician shared photos with Chioma on Instagram, who could be seen getting her man ready for the stage.
Since the passing of his son Ifeanyi in October, Davido hadn’t published anything on social media until.
Since the event, the couple had avoided social media, but when he returned, millions of Nigerians and followers from across the world flocked to like their photos.
Aisha, Ozun, and GIMS, three international performers, also appeared on the global stage with Davido.
“Better Together” by Davido and Aisha was performed, and “Arhbo” by Ozuna and GIMS was sang.
Excited Nigerians praised Davido on social media for his stunning performance on the international stage after his show on Sunday night, with many claiming that he had made their country proud.
Among the numerous Nigerians who praised Davido were music producer Samklef and well-known DJ Neptune.
Samklef tweeted a performance video and stated, “OBO, our king is back,” unable to contain his joy.
DJ Neptune tweeted, “#davido, we are so delighted to see and watch you play,” during the performance.
The wonderful news that Davido would perform at the 2022 FIFA World Cup’s closing ceremony was initially announced by Chinese businessman Stephen Hung last week.
For many Nigerians and followers of the music star around the world, the development was a welcome piece of news.
“So thrilled my bro #davido confirmed he will be performing at the World Cup Qatar closing ceremony,” Hung said in his Instagram story after announcing the news. I am forward to meet him there.
