Ayodeji Balogun, a Grammy-winning singer and performer better known by his stage name Wizkid, became the first African artist to perform at the renowned Tottenham Hotspur stadium in London on Saturday, July 29, 2023. Fans were not the only ones present to witness the significant event as music artists also graced the occasion.
The Cavemen, Wande Coal, Masego, and Skyla Tyla, who opened the performance for fans, were confirmed to have performed that evening. Seyi Vibez, LAX, Darkoo, P. Prime, Ms. Banks, Rahman Jago, Bankuli, Rexxie, and many more notable performers also attended the performance that evening.
A large crowd had gathered backstage to support the artist on his big night by hanging out with Wiz and his crew.
As the first and only African artist to headline and perform at the venue, Wiz’s concert in London is significant for African music. The Grammy-nominated and iconic Made In Lagos album’s smash song Reckless served as the singer’s grand entrance, and as he ascended the stage, fans could not contain their enthusiasm.
Wizkid opened his More Love Less Ego tour at Spurs Stadium in a continued promotion of fifth studio album. From the UK, the Starboy would be setting sail to the US as he keeps pushing the boundaries with the Afrobeat movement.
