Yesterday, Nigerian Pop star David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido treated over 10, 000 fans to a concert in Suriname, a little unknown country in South America.

The singer who shared moments from the concert on his twitter is still bewildered over the amount of love and popularity of his craft and music in that country.

Davido wasn’t the only one who was surprised by the turnout from last night’s concert. Asa Asika, the artiste’s manager also expressed his shock over the milestone. Asa, who shared his thoughts on twitter also described it a moment fit for the history books.

Before now, many persons including me didn’t know of the existence of this country with little over 500 thousand population, just about the population of a small Local government in Lagos state, Nigeria, the defacto music capital of Nigeria where Davido soldout the popular Eko Hotel venue also with over 10, 000 guests for his December 30Billion Concert.

A quick research about the small republic reveals Suriname as the smallest country in South America, a sovereign state on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America.

A former colony of the Netherlands, the country is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the North, France (through French Guiana) to the east, Guyana to the west and Brazil to the south. At just under 165,000 square kilometres (64,000 square miles).

Suriname has a population of approximately 558,368, most of whom live on the country’s north coast, in and around the capital and largest city, Paramaribo.

Indigenes of Suriname are descendants of slaves from around 17th century, during the Dutch colonial period. It was primarily a plantation economy dependent on African slaves.

It is a big deal that the pop star could pull this feat, in the same week another fellow Nigerian pop star Wizkid has sold out the popular 20,000 capacity O2 Arena in readiness for his Afrorepublik Concert which holds on May 26th.

The power, sound AND message of Nigerian music is surely penetrating to the hinterlands of the world and we all are happy that is happening in our lifetime.

See some reactions from Twitter over the announcement from Davido.
