Afrobeats’ biggest superstar Wizkid has played an essential role in spiraling the genre into a proper global sensation. With one foot decisively rooted in the music of his home country Nigeria and the other in R&B, hip-hop and pop Wizkid has perfected his smooth yet unignorable hybrid. Relaxed yet infectiously danceable, the Nigerian singer-songwriter manages to demand attention without ever raising his voice. Wizkid won regional success with his debut album ‘Superstar’ (2011) with songs like ‘Holla at Your Boy’ but it was the Drake collaboration ‘One Dance’ that rocketed him to international stardom. A position he solidified with the widely acclaimed ‘Made In Lagos’ from 2021 which includes the megahit ‘Essence’ featuring Tems as well as the killer track ‘Ginger’ co-starring Way Out West-favorite and fellow countryman Burna Boy. Last year Wizkid released the equally celebrated ‘More Love, Less Ego’ where he continued to parade his seductive, genre-blending expertise while sharpening his unique sound. We are excited to announce that Wizkid will be performing the closing set on Thursday at Way Out West. And believe us, this has all the makings of truly memorable concert.
Wizkid will perform in Slottsskogen on Thursday Aug 10. Buy your tickets HERE!
