From Ojuelegba to the World! Wizkid Sold out the Royal Albert Hall in London & it was a Night to Remember

Published

 on

It’s the Wizkid takeover as the international superstar made history last night when he sold out the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London and he is the first Nigerian artist to do so, might we add!

Wizkid shut it down through his one-hour set, starting the night with songs from when he was with EME to his rise 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 and when he performed Ojuelegba, the hall went wild and as expected, there was no way he was going to leave without giving an encore.

What’s inspiring is that the hall was filled with over 5000 guests featuring an array of different races, which shows that the power of music transcends race and culture!

As he closed, he told the audience that his next move is to sell out the O2 Arena next year and after him making history yesterday, selling out the O2 arena is a possibility.

Watch his performance!

    When I see WizKid, I keep remembering Linda’s words ‘I’ll be here for a long time but some people will come and go’. WizKid will be here for a long too Linda.

      I also remember his verbal attacks to her, and I do hope he has learned and grown from that.

    No need for the Linda yab here biko. This sure is WizKid’s moment
    I remember how he kept calm when his then rival on the local scene was garnering rave reviews and people were comparing them and casting Wiz as less of a musical force.
    Everyone sure has their destiny.

    Kudos to Wizkid. However, the real story here is that Africans now have proper spending power anywhere in the world! There was a time, about a decade ago, when such a concert at such a venue would have less than 5% Africans in the audience. Africans in the diaspora have come a long way, this is our time! Well done Wizzy!
