Royal Albert Hall
The Royal Albert Hall is a concert hall on the northern edge of South Kensington, London. It is one of the United Kingdom’s most treasured and distinctive buildings.
Wizkid made international news in 2017 when he became the first Afrobeat musician to headline a sold-out event in London’s Albert Hall.
Wizkid shut it down through his one-hour set, starting the night with songs from when he was with EME to his rise as Africa’s number one artist. He also brought Wande Coal out to share the moment with him.
The Baba Nla star also sold out the Skyway Theatre in Minnesota, on October 6, 2018. He is the first African artist to sell out the theatre.
Due to this feat, he was rewarded with a day set aside to celebrate him, called Wizkid Day.
The O2 Arena is a multi-purpose indoor arena in the centre of The O2 entertainment complex on the Greenwich Peninsula in southeast London.
At 20,000 seating, it has the second-highest seating capacity of any indoor venue in the United Kingdom, behind the Manchester Arena, and as of 2020, the O2 Arena was still the busiest music arena in the world in terms of ticket sales.
Wizkid made history by becoming the first musician from Africa to sell out the O2 Arena more than twice, first at the AfroRepublik event there in 2018 and then at the Starboy Fest there in 2019. However, his most memorable performance at the O2 occurred in 2021, when he sold out his three-day tickets in a matter of minutes.
Accor Arena, Paris
In September 2022, Wizkid sold out the 20,000-capacity Accor Arena for his Made In Lagos’ concert.

Mbappe had been recorded by a fan who had also attended the historical concert with Popcaan, Naomi Campbell and rumoured Jack Dorsey all backstage with Big Wiz himself.
