Grammy-winning and multi-Platinum-selling Nigerian global superstar, Wizkid, has made an exciting announcement in the form of a London tour date.

Wizkid – real name Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun – is set to play in the capital this year in support of his fifth studio album, More Love, Less Ego.

The Afrobeats musician, 32, will be performing for the first time live at state-of-the-art Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, July 29.

This marks Wizkid’s return to London after his historic three-date sold-out run at the O2 Arena in 2021, which received rave reviews.

Evening Standard wrote that his show was ‘a triumph for African music’s increasingly globalised reach.’

Meanwhile, The Telegraph praised the superstar for having ‘the O2 Arena in the palm of his hand.’

While details of his forthcoming show are being kept under wraps, fans can surely expect a set list of hits, as well as his recent singles.

Prior to the release of More Love, Less Ego, Wizkid dropped the singles Money & Love, and Bad To Me, and also featured on Chris Brown’s track Call Me Every Day.

That’s not all, as the 13-track album features collaborations with Skepta, Shenseesa, Ayra Starr, Skillibeng, Naira Marley and Don Toilver.

Tickets for the July show at Tottenham Stadium go on sale on Friday, January 27 at 10am.

Wizkid began his career in music at just 11 years of age in Lagos, Nigeria.

His first record, Lil Prinz, was recorded in 2001 in collaboration with Glorious Five.

Since then, he has become a global phenomenon, releasing multiple albums and singles, collaborating with some of the biggest names in music, and performing on some of the world’s biggest stages.

His track Ojuelegba was even also picked up and remixed by Drake and Skepta, thrusting Wizkid into the international spotlight.

In return, Wizkid appeared on Drake’s 2016 smash single One Dance.

Wizkid went on to reach a major career milestone in 2020 with his Grammy-nominated album Made in Lagos, which has over a billion streams to its name.

The album reached the top spot on the Billboard World Albums chart and marked his first top UK top 20.

Global hit single Essence featuring Tems spent 21 weeks in the Official Charts, peaking at number 16, and achieved RIAA-certified 2x Platinum status.
