King Promise performs at Wizkid’s O2 Arena event with Chris Brown, making Ghana proud.
Over the weekend, King Promise’s name was once again registered on the international stage.
On Sunday night, during Wizkid’s sold-out event at London’s O2, the Ghanaian artist was introduced to perform. The show, which drew hundreds of fans, is part of the Nigerian singer’s ‘Lagos To The World’ tour.
Wizkid’s first performance sold out in just 12 minutes, putting him in the company of superstars like the Spice Girls and the Rolling Stones, who had both sold out the arena in under 13 minutes.
The ‘Slow Down’ singer was asked to perform during a segment of the concert that was attended by a large crowd after the MC remarked “representing Ghana to the fullest, I need the lights out for this young man, the King of all promises,” and the singer arrived to play his monster tune “Oh Yeah.”
Before performing his “Commando” song to the delight of the crowd, King Promise took a time to address the Ghanaians in the audience.
An extract of King Promise’s performance has been trending on social media since then, with Ghanaian netizens praising his talent and expressing delight at him raising the Ghanaian flag at the historic event.
Take a look at the video and some Twitter posts below to see what Ghanaians have been saying on social media.
