BEFORE YOU READ BELOW, THERE ARE "4 POINTS OF VIEW" GATHERED BY ME @LizMani

  1. THE MEDIA BASED ON WHAT THEY HAVE HEARD OR WITNESSED
  2. DAVIDO'S POINT OF VIEW
  3. THE FANS POINT OF VIEW (PRESENT AT THE CONCERT OR NOT PRESENT)
  4. THE PROMOTER'S OFFICIAL STATEMENT  

MEDIA #1  
If you haven’t heard, I will tell you. The Omo Baba Olowo of Naija music — Davido was billed to perform in New York days ago, but the singer turned up high and couldn’t perform or thrill his fans. After all the stuff that happened on friday night at the Davido concert in NY and the reaction from people on saturday, Davido has come out to apologize for all the mishaps that happened that night.
MEDIA #2 
Davido who is currently in New York as part of a US tour, has been accused by his NY fans of scamming them right there in the Big Apple. The pop artiste’s first official US tour seems to have started on a bad note as his live concert in New York last was packed by angry fans who took to social media to berate the Pop singer for his ‘bad behaviour’. According to concert goers, the headline artiste (Davido) was billed to hit the stage at about midnight but did not do so until 3AM. Fans had gotten irritated at this point, knowing that the show was to end in an hour. Davido is also said to not have performed his hit song ‘Skelewu’. Fans who paid for regular tickets were charged $40 while VIP tickets sold for $75. The show (and US concert) was put together by Big A Entertainment. Knowing fully well what had happened, Davido tried to correct the ‘mishap’ by tendering an apology on Twitter but it seemed too late as fans responded, blasting him.
MEDIA #3 
Davido had a concert in New York City last night, and a lot of fans were left gravely unsatisfied by the organization, Davido’s performance and more. According to reports, the show was set to end at 4am, and Davido didn’t hit the stage till very late, and shortly after the show was shut down by city police. This left a lot of fans pissed off and they’ve taked to his instagram pictures to lash out at him, and his stage performance. Davido also sent out a message indicating that he got a lot of love before the show was shut down. See some of the messages fans put on his instagram pictures.

FANS RESPONDED!!!!


















NOW HERE IS AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT RELEASED BY THE PROMOTER!!!!!

As the need arises we owe our beloved people an explanation of what transpired at the Davido Concert on Friday March 28th,2014.



HALL
It is important to state that Pulse 48,was not the first choice of Venues for Davido concert.
The tour was announced about 2months before the set date which gave us barely 1month to look for a venue.

We looked for several venues which we felt had better facilities for the concert but they were all booked for that day. We contacted about 100venues like Amazura, 630 ballroom, BB King etc. The artistefee had already been paid for and the tour Manager could not get another date for us to reschedule, We eventually had to use Pulse 48 thinking it would accommodate our crowd. We did not envisage getting up to 3000people as it has never happened in the history of Afro-beat concerts in America before.

We had over 3000people in attendance, over 2000persons gained admission while about 800people turn back or were not allowed to get in to avoid over population.



SECURITY:
The Hall provided about 10security men and we provided 5security. We went ahead to get 7more security personals when we realized how much unruly the crowd was, Making it a total of 22security personals.



ARTIST ARRIVAL AND ENTOURAGE:

The Party Bus arrived at the Hotel to pick the Artiste and entourage by 12am.The Entourage comprising of over 20people left the hotel around 12:35am and arrived at the 1:36am.He was unable to get into the venue for security reasons. We had to make sure we were able to securely take him in and out of the concert. Moreover, it was also a big hustle to bring him in because of his number of persons in his entourage. This did not make  it any easier for the promoters and the Security.

Davido and his entourage eventually got into the Venue at about 2:30am and was in the waiting room while the security tried to make sure it was safe for him to go on stage. He finally got on Stage around 3:15am and his gang member insisted that another artiste who is a friend of theirs should perform before they go on stage. Mind you, this artist was not on the performance line up. After that,each and every member of the HKN gang began to perform, our effort to get Davido to go on stage right away proved abortive as they all had to perform before him.He finally got on stage by 3:30am and 18mins after he started performing, the NYPD came and short down the event for safety concerns.

  

STAGE:

The Stage was crowded for these reasons:


(1) The Venue had a bad Stage which made it difficult to control the crowd.

(2) The crowd were not disciplined and everyone wanted to be on stage.
(3) Davido's  entourage was over 20people.
(4) The security could not identify who the performers were or who was part of the HKN gang.



WHY THE EVENT WAS SHUT-DOWN
The news making the round is that the concert was shut down because of over capacity. The truth about it is that the Fire Service department shut down the concert because a girl called the Cops 6times and making some claims. It is still unclear to us what her complaints were but she stopped us from having fun.
