Nigerian superstar Davido has put his sold-out tour in North America on hold due to the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus.
His announcement comes after the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the Coronavirus as a pandemic.
According to Davido, the health of his team members and fans are more important to him.
He stated on Twitter that, although he is saddened by his decision, “postponing is the right thing to do.”
“I’m saddened to halt what has been a fantastic sold-out tour so far, but postponing is the right thing to do. The health and safety of my fans and staff is most paramount and nothing else matters. Be safe and see you all soon! God be with us all!”
