Wizkid shuts down London’s O2 Arena on first day of his 3-day Made in Lagos concert

While Wizkid is still cooling off from the day one of his three-day Made in Lagos concert, social media is already abuzz with the star’s performance at the legendary O2 Arena, London. Following the performance, the first batch of the tickets to the show sold out in minutes, and the second and third batch for the new concert days also sold out almost immediately.

From his dramatic entrance to the stage, his tribute to recently deceased fashion designer, Virgil Abloh, to electrifying performances, and surprise appearances from Hollywood’s biggest stars, it is safe to say that he had quite an eventful night.

Yesterday, Wizkid kicked off the beginning of his O2 arena concert as he treated his 20,000 fans with premium entertainment. He brought to the stage with him other artistes like American Superstar Chris Brown. He also brough hit maker Tems, Buju with the Golden Voice, British Singer Ella Mai, and British rapper Skepta who all featured in his ‘Made In Lagos’ album, as he performed songs from there.

Tems and Wizkid sang their hit song ‘Essence’, to the delight of fans who couldn’t help but sing along to the song which was dubbed “the song of the summer” by Justin Bieber.

He brought Buju on stage as for ‘Mood’, in a moment that Buju described as career-defining. The artiste took his Instagram page @bujutoyourears to share pictures of the performance, with the caption,

“Shey Buju ko niyen? 20,000 plus DEEEP!! Singing back to me!! Grace, hard work and constant support from my people brought me here and I’m not going back!! @wizkidayo HIGHESTT (eagle) Love you forever!!”.

Besides performing songs from his first album ‘Super Star’, Wizkid proved that he had more surprises in store for his fans, when he invited to the stage, Chris Brown who he recognised as the first guy to ever show him love internationally, and his real brother for 10 years. Breezy performed his own rendition of ‘Go Crazy’ which was a song he originally sang with Young Thug.

After the performance, Chris Brown shared a message for Wizkid on his Instagram page @chrisbrownofficial which read,

“So FU**ing proud/thankful of/for my bro @wizkidayo for his achievements, we been homies for 10 years +. LONDON I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR THE LOVE YALL HAVE SHOWED ME. Truly a moment I will forever be grateful for. #breezyseason”.

Other performances for the night were Ella Mai and Wizkid’ssong ‘Piece Of Me’ and ‘Long Time’ featuring Skepta.

Notable star appearances during the event included that of British rapper Stormzy, and footballer Lukaku. Super model, Naomi Campbell attended the show as well and got herself acquainted with Big Wiz.

Hollywood actress Gabrielle Union-Wade was also in attendance, and she even visited Wizkid backstage to congratulate him for a successful performance. Both stars hung out for a few hours, and Gabrielle stole the hearts of Nigerians after she said she wanted to visit Nigeria to get the full treatment.

At the end of day one, a grateful Wizkid shared stills from the ’Made In Lagos’ concert on his Instagram page, @wizkidayo with the caption, “Last Night was emotional! Thank you, London! We go again tonight! I got more for you!’’.

The star is already warming up for the second concert, and fans cannot get enough of what Wizkid is dishing out and are clamouring for more across various social media platforms.
