Davido will no longer be performing at J’Cole’s Dreamville Festival this weekend as planned as the festival has been cancelled due to the Hurricane Florence which has been announced to be sweeping the US East coast and will affect the festival.
The Dreamville festival which was supposed to take place on Saturday, the 15th of September was meant to have on its stage great artistes such as Davido, the festival creator J Cole, Teyana Tylor, Big Sean, Bas, Nelly, Young Thug and more.
