On Sunday, Wizkid, the Nigerian superstar, began the first of a three-night residency at London's O2 Arena, which seats 20,000 people, in support of his critically acclaimed album Made In Lagos.

Wizkid sold out the first gig in just 12 minutes, putting him in the company of giants like the Spice Girls and the Rolling Stones, who had both sold out the venue in under 13 minutes.

While fans inside were enjoying the star-studded event, those unable to obtain tickets caused havoc at the gate, prompting critics to compare the incident to the unfortunate circumstance at the Travis Scott Astrowold Festival in the United States.

Wizkid pulled out special guests like Nigerian artist Tems, Ella Mai and UK rapper Skepta during his performance last night (Sunday 28 November).

Chris Brown appeared on stage to sing 'Go Crazy,' his collaboration with Young Thug. Wizkid also paid tribute to famed designer Virgil Abloh whose death was announced just two hours before he hit the stage.

Wizkid had a triumphant night, performing old favourites and new songs from his fourth studio album, Made In Lagos, nominated for a Grammy. The singer has gotten two other nominations for the 2019 awards.
