Other Nigerian acts that have sold out venues like Wizkid at the 02

Last year, Wizkid performed a sold-out show at the Royal Albert Hall and over the weekend, he took to the O2 stage as part of the AfroRepublik concert on Saturday (26 May) to perform for a 20 000-strong crowd. He had a handful of other Nigerian superstars on the line up from Tekno, Mr. Eazi, Maleek Berry to Tiwa Savage, Giggs, Skepta and Naomi Campbell announcing him on stage.

Congrats #Wizkid. 20000 fans at the 02 in London.
