Davido reveals why he paid 55,000 pounds more for epoch making O2 Arena concert
Davido is making media rounds in the US and recently stopped at the Hot 97 FM in New York where chopped it up with Oldman Ebro. An interesting topic they spoke about was his 02 Arena show where he revealed that he had to pay a whopping Fifty Five thousand pounds for time extension.
Davido said in his words, “I was scared though, because first of all, you know how we Africans do, we’re always late, we take time. They said I gotta get on stage by 8, and I said alright and then by 8 o’clock my boy come tell me that brother you can’t go on stage right now and I say what you mean, he said brother everybody is still walking around, I looked at the stadium, half empty. I was going crazy.”
He continued: “They said i’d have to pay £55,000 for time extension and i said I’ll pay two hundred thousand pounds in this place. Me, the way I know my people, people want me to fail. If I go on that stage that place is half empty, somebody will take that picture and that picture will go farther than anything. I waited till that place was filled.
I waited for about an hour and thirty before we started. I’d rather pay the fine because people don’t want you to win. Negativity goes way farther than positivity.”
