Wizkid has hinted that he’s going on a tour with Davido. *screaming*
Even though Big W hasn’t given us a date or a list of locations yet, I’ve taken it upon myself to create a setlist. Are you really a fan if you don’t help your faves plan every aspect of their lives?
Let’s get into this setlist.
The show has to open with a blast from the past. Before we get to the colour-coordinated fashion icon Wizkid, we need to revisit the Mohawk and shambala-wearing Wizkid of hits like Holla at Your Boy and Pakurumo. The same goes for Davido, who made carrot jeans super popular with his Dami Duro video back in 2012.
Holla at Your Boy/Dami Duro
For Me featuring Wande Coal/Back When featuring Naeto C
Major collaborations off their first albums
Davido and Wizkid have massive hits, but we still need to appreciate the bops that were either ahead of their time or drowned out by a busy year.
Daddy Yo/Like Dat
Two songs that were way ahead of their time.
Fever/Tanana featuring Tiwa Savage
A Tiwa Savage cameo and duet? I couldn’t have planned this better.
Nwa Baby deserved so much more just because of the lyric, “My baby, no feeding bottle”, alone.
This is when all the lovers in the audience start heavy PDA, and the single people whisper, “God, when?”
Love My Baby/Aye
Davido and Wizkid’s biggest love songs, in my opinion.
Are you really getting married if the DJ doesn’t play one of these?
Tay Iwar’s vocals are amazing on True Love. And Davido screaming, “You for dey for me” and “Shukushaka aya shoemaker” will definitely get the crowd hyped up.
The real party is about to start. Drink some water and stretch as we dive into some of the biggest hits that helped cement Davido and Wizkid’s position as modern-day Afrobeat legends.
Energy (Stay Far Away) featuring Skepta/If
Wizkid kicking things off with a Skepta hit and Davido finishing it with If feels like a good start.
On Top Your Matter/Jowo
These men were gone when they made these bops. May bumbum and love not land us in trouble.
Jaiye Jaiye featuring Femi Kuti/The Best featuring Mayorkun
Songs that have Davido and Wizkid singing about being GOATs who deserve all the best things in the world? Inject it, please.
Beat of Life featuring Sarz/Champion Sound featuring Focalistic
Two collaborations that can turn any gathering into a major rave.
One invented a new dance move, while the other kept us going during the #EndSars protests — iconic.
Essence featuring Tems/Fall
You can’t talk about Davido and Wizkid’s career without talking about these songs — epic stuff, right here.
We’ve finished dancing our asses off, and it’s time to book that ride back home. What songs should our faves close out the show with?
Blessed featuring Damian Marley/All of You
There’s nothing that says we’re coming to the end of a show better than songs about being thankful and proving the haters wrong.
Everybody, put your lighters in the air. It’s worship time.
