Ikedi Mekz joined Wizkid and other new acts to close an exciting year
From concerts to packed beachside shows, Nigerian artistes kept us entertained in December, and recently the StarBoy capped it all. Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun known for his stage name Wizkid or Big Wiz has excellently graced the shores of Landmark Beach with his musical talent at the just-concluded Vibes on the Beach concert. Starting off the show, Wizkid set the tone for the night with his 2020 single, Mood.
He then went down memory lane with some back-to-back throwback classics, one of which was Lagos Vibes. This wasn’t the only throwback that Wizkid revived. Just after the live performance of Mighty Wine, the musical genius took fans all the way to 2011, performing his hit singles, Oluwa Lo Ni and Pakurumo. His day one fans were already singing along once they heard the next song, No Lele.
More back to back throwback hits were dropped almost all through the concert with the Starboy bringing back songs like Show you the Money and Azonto. Artistes Ceeza Milli and Terri jumped on stage with the Starboy to perform Soco. The superstar then went on to perform his and Burna Boy’s new jam, Ballon D’or followed by his more recent single Anoti.
Artiste CDQ also jumped on stage with the Starboy to perform Nawo e Soke. Afterwards, Wizkid brought up artist Ruger on stage to perform single Bounce. Fast rising star, Viktony also surprised fans as he was also brought up by BigWiz during the show. He stood up from his wheelchair, supported by his cane, to perform Holy Father, an original song featuring Mayorkun.
Big Wiz returned to the stage to perform Joro, followed by one of our faves from the Made in Lagos Album, Blessed. He then went on to sing Essence before closing the show with the beloved, Ojuelegba. I can say that the Star Boy did not come to play another set as he closed his final concert for 2021. Vibes on the Beach is part of the lineup of Stacked December concerts that took place across Lagos in December. His fans across the world are already looking forward to him to bring home another Grammy for himself this year.
