In a UK show exclusive, Grammy Award winning Nigerian singer/songwriter Wizkid, is the latest artist to be added to The O2’s Welcome Back Show series where he’ll perform his Made In Lagos show to full capacity crowds on Sunday 28 November 2021.


Following the release of his critically acclaimed album Made in Lagos, fans will not only be engulfed in the unique sounds, live instrumentation, and vibes of Lagos, but will celebrate Wizkid’s love and appreciation for where he comes from and his inspirational journey. Wizkid’s Made In Lagos tour will span his 10-year discography.


The O2’s Welcome Back Show series is set to showcase the very best of British and International acts. Confirmed events include:


  • Burna Boy - 27 August
  • Ministry of Sound Classical - 13 November
  • Alanis Morissette - 24 November
  • UK comedian Mo Gilligan + Friends with ‘The Black British Takeover’ - 8 December


With more artists still to be announced.


Marc Saunders, Programming Manager at The O2 said: “It’s brilliant to be able to welcome Wizkid back to The O2 for such a special occasion with our Welcome Back shows. This is a UK exclusive and based on how the fans reacted when he last performed, we have no doubt that he’ll have the full arena going wild once again.”


Gareth Griffiths, Head of Sponsorship at O2 added: “The Welcome Back Shows go from strength to strength. How good to have WizKid return to The O2 in November. This will be some show and reminds us all why there’s nothing like seeing your favourite artists perform live.”
