Nigerian music superstar Davido gave fans an unexpected surprise when he announced that his North American tour is set to kick off this June, and they responded, clearly excited, since one of the stops is already sold out!

The 29-year-old international singer-songwriter posted a show update to Instagram on Thursday, revealing that the Toronto stop on his “We Rise by Lifting Others” tour has sold all of its available tickets. 

Davido had just revealed the five-city pop-up trek on this past Tuesday, alerting concert-goers about the many surprises and new tunes he might preview at the shows. 

“I miss my fans in North America so much I had to put together a short run just to come see you all,” he wrote. “Going to be plenty of surprises and I might preview a few songs off my new album. Tickets on sale everywhere this THURSDAY ! LETS GO.”

In 2011, Davido found major music success with the release of his debut album, Back When, and hit single “Dami Duro.” His popular song “If” also landed at the top of the Apple Music charts for weeks after its release.
