As Davido hammers the golden spike at Mercedes Benz Stadium, thousands of Oyinbo fans celebrate.
As Davido recently made history, fans and followers couldn’t keep their cool. He became the first African artiste to perform at a multipurpose stadium.
The father-of-three was spotted climbing the podium in a t-shirt and jeans trousers with a wooden hammer.
Davido has become the first African celebrity to perform Atlanta United’s pre-match ritual in Major League Soccer. An invitation to hit the Golden Spike was extended to the singer by Atlanta United, which performs this ritual before home games.
Davido shared videos of the moment on his social media pages. Shirtless and wearing trousers, the singer hit the spike from the top of the podium. While he was climbing, he could hear tens of thousands of white people in the stadium yelling in delight.
