Burna Boy, Davido, Wizkid gross over $7 million in international concerts

The ease on lockdowns and social distancing in 2021 saw the return of social gatherings like restaurants and music concerts. In recent years, afro-beats and Nigerian artists have had a renaissance, seeing a kind of global demand. Ever since CKay’s ‘Love Nwantiti’ and Wizkid’s ‘Essence’ went viral on the video content app, TikTok, other people including non-native English speakers have taken a liking to Nigerian music.

Capitalizing on this, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Davido – arguably the three biggest artists in Nigeria, have had concerts in the O2 Arena.

In May 2020, the arena’s naming partner, O2, announced that it had plans to reopen with a series of ‘Welcome Back’ events that will play to full capacity crowds in the arena for the first time since March 2020 when the global outbreak happened.
