Davido To Take Centre Stage At World Cup Closing Ceremony As Argentina Battles France For The Trophy.

Davido who is set to become the first-ever African artiste to perform at the world's biggest sporting event,  has arrived in Qatar ahead of his performance at the closing ceremony of the 2022 World Cup.

FIFA had earlier confirmed that Nigeria’s popular artist, Davido will take the centre stage in the closing ceremony just before Argentina takes on France in the final match on Sunday at the Lusail Stadium.

Bernard Colignon a FIFA-licensed player agent, posted a video of him and Davido on his Instagram story on Thursday.

In the video, Davido could be seen hanging out with Bernard, alongside Ghana Black stars assistant coach, George Boateng, and music star, Stonebwoy.

Stoneboy was billed to perform at the fan festival on Friday, December 16, 2022 in Doha.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles had failed to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup but part of the country will be on the stage Sunday night when the curtain is drawn to end what many see as one of the best if not the best organised World Cup ever.

Though the Nigeria's entertainment industry has represented the country well at the Mundial, with several music artists like Kizz Daniel who have entertained fans in the stadiums sometimes before matches and sometimes at half time.

It has been a World Cup of upsets, after the surprise outcome of some matches that will remain green in the memories of football fans.

Davido, Japanese Aisha and American singer Trinidad Cardona composed Hayya Hayya (Better Together), the official soundtrack of the 2022 World Cup, a song that moves all to gyrate when it is played.

His performance at the concluding ceremony of the football tournament on Sunday will be his first after tragic passing of his beloved son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, on October 31st.

The sad event has since made the Afrobeat singer go off radar.

He was supposed to perform at the start of the football tournament, but unfortunate incidents made it impossible.

Argentina talisman Lionel Messi, 35, comes into Sunday's final bidding to lift the World Cup trophy for the first time in his career; Kylian Mbappe, 23, would be the youngest player to win the tournament twice since Pele in 1962 if France retain their title.
