Once again, Wizkid has shown the growth that Nigerian music has experienced over the years, historically selling out his headline event at the O2 Arena at the AfroRepublik concert on Saturday, May 26, 2018. Everyone present or who streamed live via the provided YouTube channel will forever remember the night when Wizkid brought not just his hit songs but precision, joy, amazing work ethic and upped the ante for this generation of artists.
On the night, over 20,000 fans turned up from around the world and Wizkid served up a beautiful experience that will be savoured for a long time.
Late last year, Wizkid sold out the Royal Albert Hall in London and at the end of the show, the singer had promised that his aim for the coming year was to sell out the iconic O2 Arena and true to his words, barely seven months after, Wizkid announced his concert and it was sold out days before the event.
It was his first major international performance for the year and the concert was preceded by performances from the likes of Maleek Berry, Yxng Bane who brought Kojo Funds on stage, Mr Eazi who performed his latest single, London Town alongside UK rapper, Giggs, Tekno, Not3s, Tiwa Savage, but the night belonged to Wizkid, the Starboy of Nigerian music.
Introduced by British superstar, Naomi Campbell, Wizkid took to the stage wearing a mask and backed by a full band with his dancers, he had his fists in the air as the fans went wild and lit up the arena with their phones.
Hollywood Star John Boyega was even seen posing with Wizkid and Tiwa Savage Backstage
With a double dose of Soco and Daddy Yo, Wizkid brought the show to a climax performing Ojuelegba as he promised, ”London I want to thank you for coming out tonight and I want to promise you that we gon make this happen again next year”. What an experience! See more stunning images in the gallery.
