Davido Becomes First African Musician to Perform at the ‘Atlanta Golden Spike’


Popular Nigerian musician, Davido has made history by becoming the first African pop star to appear at the Atlanta Golden Spike.

His performance came to be after he appeared as a guest of Atlanta United to hammer the Golden Spike, one of MLS’s most unique rituals.

More so, he was invited by the beloved people of Atlanta to kickstart the Atlanta United FC MLS match against Columbus FC at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Georgia, thereby earning the title of a golden spike hitter.
Moreover, the Mercedes Benz Stadium is the same one American rapper and top fashion designer, Kanye West used for his “Donda” (10th solo studio) album listening party which happened on Thursday night, July 22, 2021.

The afrobeat singer shared clips from the exciting moment and how the crowd went wild when he stepped on the podium to hit the spike and also the exciting moment when he and his manager, Asa Asika got to the stadium.
Donned in a t-shirt with his name boldly inscribed at the back and trousers, the father of three wore a face cap as he climbed up the podium to hit the spike.

As expected, while he was climbing, thousands of white people at the stadium were heard screaming happily.
