Wizkid repeated history made at London’s The O2 Arena this year, after achieving the same mark in 2018 for his now annual Starboy Festival.
Starboy Festival 2019 was hosted on Saturday, October 19 at the 20,000 capacity Arena, filled with Afrobeat Britain’s African diaspora fans from all walks of life to see their favourite musician of the genre. Wizkid whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun brought the London leg of the tour which has become an annual festival since the first successful edition in 2018.
Wizkid’s glittering and sublime stage performance of his classic hits receive a resounding uniform echo from the thousands of Afrobeat lovers gathered to catch glimpse of him, who by this second edition further cement his position and grabbed a seat at the apex of the music chain without any opposition.
The cohesion and coordination among Afrobeat musicians from Nigerian is a delight to be seen on any day, this was evident when Wizkid brought Afro B – who had the biggest summer banger of the year – Drogba. Just when the Afrobeat crowd thought they have seen enough, Wizkid surprised them by bringing heavyweights like Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Olamide, Runtown, and new-comers including Naira Marley, Fireboy – his Jealous song is the new wave, and more out one after the other to sends the crowd to the next level of progressive excitement.
