Nigerian music superstars and Grammy-nominated artists, Wizkid and Burna Boy are set to headline the Livespot X-Clusive concert slated for December 19 and 20, 2020. The artists who are fresh off hugely successful album releases will be making live appearances at the first-ever hybrid live concert in Lagos.
Burna Boy who is still reeling off of the excitement of his Grammy Awards nomination, under the World Music Album category, was nominated alongside other entertainers like Antibalas, Bebel Gilberto, Anoushka Shankar and Tianariwen courtesy of his latest album “Twice As Tall”.
This is the second year in a row that Burna Boy is getting a nomination in this category. Wizkid on the other hand got nominated for his feature on Beyoncé’s song Brown Skin Girl. The song’s video is nominated for Best Music Video.
The singer and songwriter assured that music lovers and fans watching online and offline will be treated to his best-performance yet. The physical events will feature limited seating in line with COVID-19 restrictions. Tickets and access to the Livestream will, however, be made available via Livespot Nation.
“This year has been tough on everybody, but we all recorded some wins in one way or another,” the artist said. “I want my fans to experience the best live concert in recent memory, and I’m looking forward to making that a reality,” Wizkid said.
With no other major concert to look forward to this December, fans have a lot to expect from Livespot X-Clusive. The concert will also feature other music superstars like Dare Art Alade aka Darey, Yemi Alade and Simi as co-headliners. The lineup also includes Cuppy, Rema, Omah-lay and Reekado Banks to name a few.
The event which will be the first-ever live hybrid concert in Nigeria will host a select few physically at Eko Hotel and the rest of the world will get a chance to stream the concert live on Livespot Nation.
