Naturally, Davido delivered a stellar performance with the luxe aesthetic to match. The backdrop to his performance was strikingly similar to that of the vibrant "D&G" music video which he dropped earlier this year featuring London On Da Track and Summer Walker. "Fall" on the other hand, was officially certified gold in the US and Canada this past May, three years after its release.

Davido's latest performance follows his "Killa" collaboration with American singer Teyana Taylor and comes shortly before his third studio album A Better Time is rumoured to be released next month.

A number of popular American television shows have, in the past, hosted several African talents including the likes of Burna Boy, Rema and Sho Madjozi, among others.
