Wizkid, a celebrity from Nigeria, has broken a record by becoming the first performer to ever headline the biggest gaming festival on earth.
The event, which is still going on, was staged in Saudi Arabia’s renowned NXT LVL Arena on Riyadh Boulevard.
On Thursday, August 4, 2022, the Grammy Award-winning singer and composer performed in front of a sizable crowd at the Gamers8 eSports concert.
The Afrobeats superstar entertained the crowd with hit songs from both his old and new music repertoire with the help of his official disc jockey, DJ Tunez, and his band. He sang a number of hit songs, including “Essence,” “Ojuelegba,” “Joro,” “Beat Of Life,” “Mood,” “Ginger,” “Soco,” and many more, with incredible vigor.
Wizkid is the stage name of Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, a singer and songwriter from Nigeria. At the age of 11, he started recording music and, along with a few of his church friends, formed the group the Glorious Five. The group released an album together.
