Believe or not, Wizkid is the most sought after Nigerian musician soaring on the world stage at the moment. The crooner made history when he sold out the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London last night as part of the organization’s Albert Sessions, a scheme that helps young world class artistes who haven’t headlined the venue before to have a shot.
Amazingly, the crowd had to wait for almost two hours before he took the stage, causing some fans to wonder why Nigerian artistes never seem to be able to be on time- even on a historic night such as this.
Though it took him to mount the stage, but when he finally did, he made the best use of it.
His 60 minutes performance took the excited audience back to his beginnings .He also brought out former Mohits/Mavin star Wande Coal to share the moment with him.
The show was broadcast live on his official Facebook page. The crowd cheered in excitement when he performed his hit song Ojuelegba. He had to perform it twice when his fans asked for it. Although when he performed Come Closer, Drake wasn’t there to perform the song with him, but the self proclaimed Star Boy was unperturbed as he hummed the melody.
Wizkid is the first African pop musician to sell out at the iconic arena. As he closed, he told the audience that his next move is to sell out the O2 Arena next year. Let’s hope he can sell out in Nigeria too.
