The show, dubbed ‘A Better Time,’ was jam-packed with Davido’s performances as well as guest appearances from friends and other artists, and the night felt like a movie being played out on the stage.

Israel DMW, Davido’s aide, was jokingly dubbed “the first Bini person at the 02,” but he most likely made history as the first person to open a show at the venue. Israel, who is known for his open adoration of his boss, Davido, took to the stage in Bini attire with a bell in hand, ringing it as he welcomed the guests in his native language and gave glowing marks about Davido to the 20,000 people in attendance.

The chemistry between Davido and Adekunle Gold on stage

Even from a screen, the turnout for Davido and his guest performances was incredible, but watching Davido and Adekunle Gold perform their hit single High was an entirely different kind of high. With the crowd’s energy already at a fever pitch, the duo brought the show to a climactic point by performing the chorus with double the energy, to the point where Adekunle Gold joked that Davido nearly tore his shirt during their performance.

Popcaan makes an appearance on the show.

Popcaan was the star guest performer at Davido’s 02 Arena debut in 2019, and the two of them performed their first collaboration, Pop Caan’s Dun Rich. Following Popcaan’s surprise appearance on Saturday, the two made history again by performing Risky.

Victony, a fast-rising singer who had survived a horrific accident, made appearances to shows seated in a wheelchair throughout December last year.

Victony, on the other hand, had performed standing for the first time at Davido’s headline show in Lagos, leaving his wheelchair to perform Holy Father with Mayorkun and Davido.

Victony had given showgoers a miracle level highlight on Saturday when he walked to the stage for the first time since his accident and performed Holy Father on his feet as well.

Finesse is performed by Pheelz.

Before Finesse by Pheelz and Buju dropped, it was already a fan favorite but watching Pheelz perform it to a crowd of 20,000 ecstatic people two days after its release was an entirely different type of highlight as that’s the first time a song has visibly caught on like wildfire after its release.

Benny blinged him

Davido’s iced-out jewelry collection has become almost as famous as the wearer, and his latest 001 pendants have wowed fans and jewelry collectors alike. The megastar then took it a step further by having Benny Da Jeweler, an A-list celebrity jeweler, put on his latest piece in front of the 20,000-strong crowd.

Given that Benny was flown in to perform rites for his top paying celeb clients, from Diddy to Taraji P Henson, this was a highlight of a different kind and reaffirmed Davido’s status as a global star.

Other highlights of Davido’s 02 Arena performance include his obvious joy while performing with former DMW signee Mayorkun, Ms DSF’s DJ set beginning with Wizkid’s No Lele, and Ardee, Russ Millions, and Tion Wayne performing the Body remix, among others.
