“Tickets are going at an impressive rate. We are quite sure we will fill up the stadium,” Oanthata could only say opting not to comment on the actual number of tickets sold.

The team is set to go on a city tour for activations and meet and greet sessions with Franco.

The show comes on the back of a nationwide call for the Kwasa Kwasa hit maker to host his own show.
