Two of Nigeria’s biggest artists, Wizkid and Davido are billed to perform at a festival in Cotonou, Benin Republic this weekend.
The festival put together by The Ministry of Tourism of Culture and Sports, Benin will run for three days from Friday, August 17 to Sunday August 19, 2018 at the Fidjrossè beach of Cotonou.
The first edition of the music festival will feature a number of top artists from the country with special performances from international superstars across the festival days.
The first day of the festival will see Davido headline the event, while Wizkid is scheduled to take to the stage on Saturday.
Wizkid and Davido have been performing at concerts and festivals all year round with the former headlining the One Africa Music Festival in New York last weekend, while Davido was mobbed by fans on stage in Windhoek, Namibia.
Davido and Wizkid are shutting down venues globally
Earlier in the year, Wizkid and Davido broke the Internet, as the Starboy sold out the 20,000 iconic O2 Arena, while Davido performed before a crowd of 10,000 in Suriname, South America.
Across a variety of genres, mainly down to pop and Afrobeats, Nigerian music is taking giant steps in becoming the supreme leader of modern music, not just in Africa but globally.
This is 2018 and what seemed unattainable barely a decade ago is happening right before our eyes inspired by the leaders of the new movement, Davido and Wizkid.
Building on very little, Davido and Wizkid have taken significant steps in sealing their legacy globally, inspiring others to dream and opening the doors to a new generation of acts that it can be achieved right from home.
