Award-winning Nigerian singer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid said he will hold a show at Madison Square Garden in New York.
The singer made the announcement at the end of his 3-day concert at London’s O2 Arena.
In August, Wizkid had disclosed that he sold out the O2 Arena, which houses 20,000 people, in 12 minutes ahead of his just-concluded concert.
Speaking after the acclaimed concert ended on Wednesday, the ‘Essence’ singer talked about plans to replicate a similar feat at Madison Square Garden.
“America I am coming back, New York Madison Square Garden 20,000 people. Star boy s**t and we are going to sell that s**t out in two seconds,” he said.
He, however, did not give details on the date of the show.
