Nigerian music star, Wizkid stunned many of his fans when he sold out tickets for his ‘Made in Lagos’ concert at the O2 Arena in November.
Wizkid released his tickets earlier in the day for his concert and it sold out in 12 minutes.
The ‘Essence’ crooner confirmed this in a post on his Twitter page.
This led to some fans mocking self-acclaimed African Giant, Burna Boy, whose show at O2 arena on the 27th of August but yet haven’t sold out.
Some fans took to their social media page comparing who is the biggest artiste between Wizkid and Burna Boy.
Others taunted Burna Boy for claiming to be the ‘African Giant’ yet cannot sell out tickets for his concert in days.
However, TheNewsGuru reports that Burna Boy’s ticket sells at higher rate and that could be the reason why tickets have not been sold out.
Below are some remarks gathered by TheNewsGuru
@Jeff “And you guys were wondering why we call him Big Wiz. This 02 sold out shock me under 12min, the same 02 Burna is yet to sell out his pre-ticket for months. Wizkid this is a lifetime assignment for African artist oh.”

@Chydee “Even Wizkid’s premium tickets have sold out, Burna’s hasn’t. And Wizkid only started three days ago, while Odogwu has been on it. Can anyone explain why? Wizkid is furnace hot, but Burna just came from a Grammy win. I’d expect him to sellout fast too. Why? Is it a marketing problem?
@Sulaimon_cule “Burna Boy’s show at the o2 is yet to sell out despite being announced some months back, and then there’s Wizkid, who sold out in 12 minutes after tickets went on sale today. I know my Goat!
