David Adeleke popularly known as “Davido”, has pulled out of the Felabration music festival.
Felabration is an annual music festival, which holds in memory of legendary Nigerian musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
The week-long festival, which was first initiated in 1998, is holding at the New Afrika Shrine. The 2017 edition commenced on Monday and will end on Sunday, October 15.
Announcing his decision to pull out via his Snapchat on Tuesday, Davido, who did not reveal the reason to cancel his performance, promised his fans he will make it up to them.
The decision comes after the “If’ crooner lost two close friends within a week.
Olugbenga Abiodun, aka DJ Olu, who is said to be a crew member of Davido Music Worldwide, was found dead on Saturday in a BMW car in a garage on Block B, Banana Island, Lagos.
Also, Umeike Tagbo, died at a bar in the Lekki area of the state after allegedly taking 10 shots of Tequila. He died on his birthday.
In the message, Davido told his fans to remember him in their prayers, as the singer is billed to continue the African leg of his ’30 Billion World Tour’.
“To all my fans expecting me at Felabration tomorrow, I’m sorry, I will not be performing anymore.
“I promise to make it up. I love you guys! Everyone stay prayed up! I love each and every one of you,” he wrote.
