Nigeria’s Wizkid has sold out the 02 Arena in London ahead of his ‘Made in Lagos’ concert.

The tickets for the one-off show, happening on November 28 in the 20,000-capacity venue, run out in a record 12 minutes after the sales went live.

Taking to Twitter and Instagram, Wizkid broke the news to fans, writing “Sold out the O2 in 12mins!! Love u London!!”

Wizkid released ‘Made In Lagos’ in October 2020 but he was unable to tour with the album because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In July, Wizkid announced the date for his album tour which included London and the other venues in the US.

Tickets went on sale on Friday, August 6, but fans who were quick bought all the tickets within 12 minutes.

Many who missed out have been calling for more dates in London.

Another fan wrote, “y’all that got 6 or more tickets…it’s not fair on us that couldn’t get even one !!!!! Not nice at all…I could cry right now cause I was literally up all night waiting to buy my ticket!!!”

However, this is not the first time Wizkid is selling out the 02. He sold out the venue with his “Starboy Fest” in October of 2019, becoming the first African artiste to do so.
