Song Of The Week
WizKid has proven himself the real king of Afrobeat in several ways and feats. Now again, Wizkid has Conquered London and Transform the O2 Arena into O3
This week, Wizkid left no doubt nor debate about his status as one of music’s most potent titans
The hotly anticipated London stop of the ‘Made In Lagos Tour’ marks the maestro’s third time headlining the world-renowned O2 Arena. Yet, on this occasion, it was for a historic three-night residency; an engagement that renders Suerele’s Finest the first Nigerian act to achieve this feat
Feverish excitement amongst fans preceded the shows and saw Wiz join an elite tally of artists (such as Beyonce and Michael Jackson) who’ve sold out the venue in the fastest time.
Palpable in the air was the sentiment that London at large was more than ready to see Wizkid in the flesh – from 60,000 tickets selling out in minutes to discussions of what reveler wear arising weeks before the concerts took place
The 31-year-old singer WizKid did not disappoint.
Serving up a setlist that was seasoned with all the pepper and spice to be expected from Wiz’s colossal catalog, the performer powered through classics such as ‘Ojuelegba,’ ‘Pakurumo,’ ‘Don’t Dull,’ ‘Back to the Matter,’ along with new ‘Made In Lagos’ fan favorites such ‘Essence,’ ‘True Love,’ and ‘Blessed.’
There was no shortage of gargantuan guests either
