It was a night of great music as Wizkid broke boundaries with a great performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London. He is the first Nigerian pop artist to do so.
The concert which held on Friday, September 29, 2017, was sold out two days before the concert, with tickets going fast.
Wizkid shut it down through his two-hour set, starting the night with songs from his EME beginnings to this point as Africa’s number one artist. He also brought out Wande Coal to share the moment with him.
The show was broadcast live on his official Facebook page, with great reactions from the crowd during the set. Songs such as ‘Jaiye jaiye’, ‘Ojuelegba’, and ‘Come closer’ moved the hall which was filled with over 5000 guests featuring an array of different races.
In 2016, this young Nigerian-born singer achieved global prominence when he collaborated with Drake on "One Dance," which reached number one in 15 countries. He picked up a staggering number of accolades including Best Worldwide Act at the MTV EMAs, Best African Act at the British MOBO Awards, and a huge seven nominations at the Billboard Music Awards 2017.
His irresistible musical style, which combines rhythms from Afro-Beat, reggae, hip-hop and dance hall, speaks to WizKid’s vision of 21st century youth culture where 'all the music of the world is coming together’.
As he closed, he told the audience that his next move is to sell out the O2 Arena next year and after making history. Watch his performance below!
