Superstar crooner, David Adeleke, better known as Davido recently engaged in a mild verbal exchange with a tweep who questioned his plans to accomplish a stadium sell-out, just as his colleague Wizkid had done.
The exchange took place in the wake of Wizkid’s impressive sold-out show at the 60,000-capacity Tottenham Hotspur stadium in the UK.
On the micro-blogging platform Twitter, a social media user decided to taunt Davido, asking him when he would be able to achieve a similar feat.
“Over to you David, stadium when @davido?”
In response, Davido displayed composure, choosing to take the higher road. He replied to the troll with a positive outlook, assuring him that the achievement he was questioning would happen sooner than expected.
Davido even went the extra mile by expressing his heartfelt wish for the critic’s well-being, hoping that he would remain alive and in good health to witness the momentous occasion.
“I pray to God ur alive and healthy by then to witness … it won’t be long ???,” the singer wrote

This exchange on social media highlighted the friendly but competitive relationship between Davido and Wizkid, two of Nigeria’s biggest music stars. Both artists have a massive fan following, and their successes often lead to comparisons and banter among their respective fan bases.
It’s worth noting that Wizkid’s achievement of selling out the Tottenham Hotspur stadium was a significant milestone for African music as a whole, showcasing the global appeal and influence of Afrobeat music and its talented artists.
On the other hand, Davido’s response serves as an example of how celebrities can choose to handle situations in a mature manner.
