All eyes would be on the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on the 29th of July, as Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer Ayodeji Balogun, who is popularly known as Wizkid graces the stage for his iconic More Love Less Ego concert.
Preparations are in top gear as the day draws nearer. One such is the visit of the musician’s talent manager and baby mama, Jada P to the venue. In a social media update, Jada shared videos of her time with the kids at the 80,000-capacity London stadium as she carried out the inspection.
Let’s take a look at what fans should expect from Wizkid’s Concert
Reports say Wizkid will join some of the greatest artists in music, such as Beyonce to perform at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
He will also be joined by American singer Masego and The Cavemen from Nigeria as well.
While Masego is famous for blending elements of contemporary R&B, hip-hop, funk, and Afrobeat, the Lagos-based sibling duo The Cavemen, are unique for their highlife/afrobeat/jazz/soul blend, with a reputation for their electric live performances.
So fans should expect to be thrilled by Beyonce, Masego, The Cavemen and many others. Fans will also see Wizkid make history as the first Nigerian artiste to hold a show in a stadium.
