Adding to the impressive repertoire of the international artists coming to Saudi Arabia to perform, Wizkid is the latest name. The Nigerian singer and songwriter is responsible for many international hits and even TikTok trending songs, like Joro, Soco, Energy, Final, and he even was a part of The Lion King album with Beyonce in the song Brown Skin Girl.
Wizkid headlined the Gamers8 Esports concert last week where thousands of fans were cheering and singing along to the artist. This was actually his first time performing in Saudi Arabia, so you can imagine the excitement of the fans who flocked to the stadiums to watch him live.

He was the first-ever African to headline a show at the NXT LVL at the Riyahd Boulevard last night.
