When Davido and Tiwa Savage picked up the 2014 MAMAs 'Artist of the Year' and 'Female Artist of the Year' awards back in June in Durban, some thought they may not have deserved it. But this is why they did!

The names of both superstars have been put up at the entrance of the prestigous O2 Academy Brixton in London ahead of a major concert this Sunday, Sept. 15.

O2 Academy Brixton has long been hailed London’s flagship venue, a must-play for artists and must-visit for music lovers. It has scooped the NME “Best Venue” award on an incredible twelve occasions between 1994 and 2007, proving its popularity with fans and the media alike and in 2009, received the Music Week ‘Venue Of The Year’ Award. With a capacity of almost 5,000, it is truly one of a kind on the circuit and combines the feeling of an electrifying arena sized atmospher.

Davido dropped the bomb on his Instagram Wednesday afternoon posting an image of the legendary building carrying his and Tiwa's names with the caption:

"Moments like this are worth more than money!! Live at the Brixton Academy this Sunday!!!!!"

This marks the first time both stars will perform at O2 Brixton and perhaps sends a strong message to the rest of the world that Nigerian artistes are as big as their Hollywood counterparts.

Gone are those days when African artistes couldn't get a spot to perform at the O2 - which is one the biggest platforms to host any artistes in Europe.

However, Davido and Tiwa now join the likes of PSquare, D'banj, Wizkid and the Mo'Hits crew to become the few Nigerian stars to hit any of the O2 venues in the past few years.

Davido simply just can't stop winning, now can he?
