Wizkid has announced a grand show that will take place this summer at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Afrobeats star will give a one-off concert on July 29, and tickets will go on sale at 10:00 on January 27. You can find tickets here.
News of the concert followed the release of Wizkid’s fifth album “More Love, Less Ego”, which was released in November 2022 and includes guest videos from Skepta, Don Toliver and others.
In a five-star review of “More Love, Less Ego”, NME wrote: “After being one of the best Afrobeats hitmakers for over a decade, Wizkid continues to expand its sound with great success.
“It sounds mature, but it’s still just as fascinating as his old favorites — which is important — “More Love Less Ego” is a masterful collection in which Wizkid begins to really improve its universal pop sound.”

In November, Wizkid appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon to perform the recent single “Money & Love”. On the November 19 episode of the late-night talk show, he performed the track “More Love, Less Ego” with the support of a group of 5 people.
Also in November, Wizkid received the Afrobeats Favorite Artist Award at the American Music Awards 2022. He was against Burna Boy, CKay, Fireboy DML and Tems.
Ahead of the release of “More Love, Less Ego”, Wizkid performed as a special guest at the NEC in Birmingham as part of the Wireless Festival in July and headlined Yam Carnival at London’s Clapham Common in August.
Reviewing his 2021 show at London’s O2 Arena, NME wrote: “Even though an amazing community is enjoying a moment at the O2, sometimes you want to see more of the personality that brought them together in the first place tonight.”
