Another top Nigerian female singer, Simi capped up 2018 by having a sold out show at the O2 Islington Academy in London.

Davido follows hotly in the step of fellow superstar, Wizkid, when he became the second Nigerian to hold a show at the capacity auditorium O2 Arena in London that was completely sold out on Sunday Night. He had previous sold out a show in Suriname, South America in front of 10,000 fans.
