Such an exciting thing to see Nigerian musicians shutting down stages at the global level. Afrobeats is quickly gaining traction in the international scene and this has seen Nigerian artists perform at various international festivals.
I mentioned in an article I posted some weeks back that performing at festivals is a good metric for the growth of Afrobeats. Because it shows that there is true demand for the Nigerian sound.
So far, some eminent Nigerian artists have performed at different festivals, concerts, major shows this year. It is important that we keep track of such memorable stuff.
We have compiled a list of all Nigerian artists that have performed at global concerts and festivals this year.
It wasn’t shocking to anyone when Wizkid was announced to perform as a headliner at The Ends Festival.
The Starboy thrilled the audience as he rolled out an unforgettable performance of his many hit songs.
Wizkid is yet one of the biggest Afrobeats acts representing the unique sound at the global level.
Since the release of Burna‘s Outside, the Afrobeats/dancehall artist has been on a steady rise.
He performed at Coachella sometime in April. The Streets Of Africa crooner also performed at The Ends Festival.
Burna Boy was recently awarded the Best International Act award at the BET.
Davido will forever be grateful to If and Fall – the songs that paved way for him in the international market.
The Afrobeats star performed at the Roots Picnic in Philadelphia as well as Hot 97 Summer Jam in the same weekend. His performance at Summer Jam was breathtaking.
Mr Eazi remains one of the most successful Afrobeats acts we’ve seen in the Nigerian music industry.
As his music is resonating with the American and European audience, the singer is building a massive platform for himself and emerging acts.
Mr Eazi performed at Coachella in April too. His set was too turnt.
The queen of Alte Lady Donli has been doing very for herself. Her hit single Cash is one of the hottest songs by an Alte act this year.
The singer performed at La Isla Social Club and her performance was one for the books.
Wande is one of the most gifted singers we have in the Nigerian music industry. The singer has consistently dished out bangers as he shuttles between Nigeria and UK.
Wande Coal performed at The Ends Festival earlier this year. As usual, he fulfilled his role as a show killer.
Since Teni stormed the music industry, she has proven to be an unstoppable force.
It was exciting to see her shut down the stage at The Ends festival.
