Wizkid Breaks Record As First African Artiste To Headline UK’s Biggest Music Festival

In recent times, Nigerian musicians are breaking the limits consistently, from Burna Boy performing at the champions league finals to Davido performing at the world cup finals, down to Tiwa Savage performing at the King Charles III coronation ceremony to mention but a few.

And now it is the Grammy-award winning Nigerian singer, Wizkid as he made history by becoming the first African artist to headline Glastonbury, which is UK’s largest music festival.

The Glastonbury music festival, held on Friday in Somerset, England, drew an astounding crowd of over 210,000 attendees.

Wizkid performed in the festival’s “Other Side Stage” and gave an outstanding performance.


He performed an enthralling combination of his chart-topping tunes, including “Essence,” “One Dance,” “Ojuelegba,” “Soco,” and “True Love.”

It would be recalled that Burna Boy also performed at the prestigious Glastonbury Festival last year but not as a headliner.
