Davido Claims His December 30 Billion Concert Raked In Half A Billion Naira

2018 is already looking up for Nigerian hot maker, Davido. The ‘FIA’ singer took to Snapchat to share some very exciting news with his fans. Apparently, the numbers from the singer’s 30 Billion concert are in and he says he and the OBO team made a whopping half a billion naira from the showcase.

Although the musician did not release an official breakdown of the concert revenue stream or let us know how he got his figures, we do not find the statistics hard to believe. The concert which held at Eko Hotel on December 27 was already sold out days before the event with over 10 thousand people in attendance. Apart from proceeds from ticket sales, some major brands including Pepsi were also on board as sponsors for the show.

The concert featured an all-star line up with performances from his ‘new best friend’ Wizkid, 2Face, Mayorkun, Niniola, Olamide and a lot of other A-list Nigerian artistes. Apart from the scheduled performances, Davido made the crowd go wild when he invited iconic Nigerian defunct label, MoHits, for a surprise reunion performance which was the biggest highlight of the night.

The unexpected performance threw the crowd into a frenzy as they performed their hit singles: ‘Booty Call’, ‘Close To You’, ‘Pere’ as well as other iconic Mavin anthems. D’Banj, Don Jazzy, D’Prince, Dr. Sid, Wande Coal and Ikechukwu had fans clamoring for a reunion of the label.

As if the MoHits reunion wasn’t head busting enough, the hashtag, ‘#30Billionconcert’ also trended in two major countries; The United States and The United Kingdom.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
