The star-studded encounter featured top music acts including Mayorkun, Peruzzi, May D, Asa Asika, Dremo, Tunji and Adewale Adeleke, Idowest Kiddwaya, Laycon and a host of others.
It was gathered that Davido who captained his side, 30BG FC, scored a brace to the delight of the handful fans who managed to be in the stands.
The DMW boss impressed in the charity, but ‘E be Tins’ crooner Dremo personally took to his official Twitter handle to disclosed that he netter a hat-trick in the encounter.
Dremo wrote: “I scored 3 goals today.”
Meanwhile, ex-BBNaija housemate Laycon has acknowledged Davido as one of the biggest voices in Afrobeats, saying his music connects with people.
The Lockdown star said this in a piece he wrote for Time about the Blow My Mind crooner who recently made the list of Time’s 100 most influential people.
According to Laycon, Davido puts 100% into every song he makes, noting that his latest album surpassed a billion streams in 2020.
In the piece, the reality star recalled the EndSARS movement and how Davido’s FEM was an anthem that peaceful protesters used to call for accountability from the government rather than giving excuses.
“When he released the song “FEM” in 2020, a title that loosely translates to “shut up” in Yoruba, he didn’t know it would become a major #EndSARS protest anthem, as youth banded together to demand the government take action to end police brutality in Nigeria last October.”
Davido spotted the tweet from Time about Laycon’s writeup and he retweeted it. The singer captioned the tweet with a love emoji.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that ‘Lagos Anthem’ crooner Zlatan Ibile took to his Twitter handle on Friday, February 19, to post a photo showing him rock a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) uniform.
In the caption that accompanied the photo, the rapper questioned the relevance of having to go to school just to get an education.
Zlatan in his post also submitted that having a certificate does not in any way guarantee a means of steady income.
