The past week has been a historic one for Nigeria’s Afrobeats superstar, Wizkid. His three-day ‘Made in Lagos’ concert held at the London O2 Arena saw the famed star driving fans to a frenzy in the sold-out venue.
It is reported that the singer raked in a record N5.2 billion in gross earnings. Online ticket sales for the various tiers and locations at the arena ranged from $108 to $270. The arena has a 20,000 crowd capacity.
Continuing in his dominance, the newly unveiled Wrapped — an annual round-up of the top artists, albums, songs and playlists of the year as streamed by users on the platform from around the world — by music platform Spotify placed Wizkid as the most-streamed artist of the year in Nigeria.
