News of the concert follows the release of Wizkid’s fifth album More Love, Less Ego, which was released in November 2022 and features guest videos from Skepta, Don Toliver and more.
In a five-star review of “More Love, Less Ego”, NME wrote: “After being one of Afrobeats’ top hitmakers for over a decade, Wizkid continues to expand his sound with great success.
“Mature-sounding, yet just as compelling as his old favourites—which is important—’More Love Less Ego’ is a masterful collection in which Wizkid is starting to really hone in on her universal pop sound.”
