Nigerian artist WizKid is scheduled to perform at the Roundhouse in London in collaboration with Apple Music Live, debuting songs from his forthcoming fifth studio album. London fans have the exclusive opportunity to attend the taping on September 27, but the Grammy winning musician’s performance will also be available to stream in 165 countries this fall. The Afrobeat artist released his first solo track, “Bad To Me”, last week, teasing his next album, due out on Oct. 29. The track departs from the sensual production of his last album, “Made In Lagos”, in favor of an amapiano-based beat.
Wizkid is no stranger to London: He sold out five shows in the city’s O2 arena last year. He’s also the first African solo artist to enter Apple Music’s Global Daily Top 10 after charting internationally with hit single “Essence.”
Wizkid made history with his album Made in Lagos, the first African album to be RIAA-certified gold last month. With this event, he joins the likes of Harry Styles, Mary J. Blige and Lil Durk, other artists who’ve collaborated with Apple Music to offer exclusive live performances.
