This will be the singer’s second public appearance since the tragic passing of his beloved son, Ifeanyi, in October.
He was supposed to perform at the start of the football tournament, but unfortunate incidents made it impossible.
His performance at the closing ceremony of the World Cup on Sunday, December 18, 2022, will be his first after the sad event that made him go off the radar.
The ‘Stand Strong’ singer’s appearance at the World Cup was first reported on Thursday, December 8, by Chinese businessman Stephen Hung via his Instagram story.
Hung confirmed that Davido will perform at the closing ceremony, adding that he could wait to see the singer.
