Davido has revealed that his 2017 concert, ’30 Billion Concert’, made over N500 million.

The “30 Billion Concert” which held in December 2017, was one of the most talked about events last year. It was a sold-out show and saw memorable performances from top acts like Olamide, Patoranking, 2Baba, Daddy Showkey and even more memorable performances like Davido and Wizkid on the same stage and Mo’Hits reunion.

The singer has now revealed that the show made at least half a billion dollars on the day. He shared this piece on his Snapchat account:

“On the 27 of December, me and my team made half a billi! Facts!!,” he wrote on Snapchat.
