The City of Houston in the United States of America, USA, has declared July 7 as Davido Day in honour of Nigerian afrobeats superstar, David Adeleke, aka Davido.
Sylvester Turner, the mayor of Houston, issued the proclamation in a statement that was made public on Friday in Houston, Texas.
He declared, “I, Sylvester Turner, Mayor of the city of Houston, do hereby proclaim July 7, 2023, as Davido Day.”
Davido shared a copy of the statement via his Instastory.
The Mayor made the proclamation following Davido’s soldout show at the iconic Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
It would be recalled that Wizkid was given similar honour in 2019 after he made history as the first African artiste to sell out the Skyway Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
Mark Dayton, Governor of Minnesota declared October 6 as Wizkid Day.
