English Premier League club, Tottenham Hotspur, on Monday on their club website announced that Grammy Award-winning and multi-Platinum-selling Nigerian global superstar, Wizkid, has made public a London tour date at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday 29th July, 2023, in support of his fifth studio album, More Love, Less Ego.
This marks Wizkid’s return to London after his historic three-date sold-out run at the O2 Arena in 2021, which was described as “a triumph for African music’s increasingly globalized reach” – Evening Standard. “The Afrobeat superstar had the O2 Arena in the palm of his hand” – The Telegraph.
Wizkid began his career in music at just 11 years old 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.
Prior to the release of More Love, Less Ego, Wizkid dropped the singles Money & Love and Bad To Me, along with featuring on Chris Brown’s track, Call Me Every Day. The 13-track album features collaborations with Skepta, Shenseesa, Ayra Starr, Skillibeng, Naira Marley and Don Toilver.
Wizkid reached 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 #1 on the Billboard World Albums chart and marked his first UK top 20. Global hit single Essence, featuring Tems, spent 21 weeks in the Official Charts, peaking at #16, and achieved RIAA-certified 2x Platinum status.
