Wizkid thrills fans in Afronation Miami (Video)
Afrobeats is becoming one of the biggest music genres in the world with demand increasing for Nigerian music across the world which has led to more Afrobeats-styled concerts and festivals.
Afronation recently hosted the Miami leg of its world tour and several Afrobeats artists were present to delight fans with Nigerian music.
Platinum-selling artist Wizkid headlined the second day of the 2-day event where he delighted fans with a choice selection of his hit songs.
Wizkid was also joined on stage by BNXN for a performance of their collaboration ‘Mood’ off his Grammy-nominated ‘Made In Lagos’ album.
On May 27 – May 28, 2023, African superstars from Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, and more gathered in Miami for Afronation.
The show was headlined by Burna Boy and Wizkid with supporting performances from Asake, Rema, CKay, Black Sheriff, Dadju, Gyakie, Nissi, Uncle Waffles, Major League DJz, Focalistic, Musa Keyz, and more.
Asake, Wande Coal, Naira Marley and others perform at Tinubu’s inauguration concert (Video)
Asake, Wande Coal, and Brymo were among the music stars who thrilled the audience at the inauguration concert of Bola Tinubu, the president-elect.
The event, titled ‘RenewedHopeConcert’, was held at the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Thursday night.
The concert was organised by the youths of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to celebrate the outcome of the general elections.
Some music stars who performed at the event include Pasuma, Buju, Waje, Asake, Fireboy, Kcee, Timaya, Naira Marley, Tony Tetuila, and Seyi Vibes, amongst others.
While Asake thrilled the huge crowd with some of his hit songs, Timaya left attendees stunned when he delivered a rendition of ‘As E Dey Sweet Us, E dey Pain Dem’.
It remains to be seen if the song was aimed at the new government or any opposition.
Wande Coal took to the stage to entertain the audience with a spectacular performance while Asake and Fireboy teamed up for ‘Bandana’.
“Abuja is about to experience first of its kind inauguration concert featuring all the A list artistes to the Z list,” Eniola Badmus, one of the concert organisers, earlier wrote on her Instagram page.
“Just because we believe so much in unity and one Nigeria. Election is over, let us come together as one and make Nigeria great again. The new era is called renewed hope.”
