Wizkid is doing the numbers and securing the bag and has reportedly made about N5.2billion in earnings from the London leg of his ‘Made in Lagos’ tour.

The Afrobeat singer who is fast on his way to becoming a legend, kicked off the 3-day event on Sunday, November 28 and will bring it to a close Wednesday, December 1.

Day in, day out, Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid has continued to perform and entertain a sold-out crowd of 20,000 capacity at the London 02 Arena.

Online ticket sales for the various tiers and locations at the arena ranged from $108 to $270. While the Arena floor section had a capacity of more than 5,200 people and sold for an average of $239 (N97,963 at N411/$) per seat.

The lower tier of more than 8,800 seats sold for an average of $170 (N69,681) and the upper tier of almost 6,000 seat capacity sold for an average of $250 (N102,472).

According to Businessday, the revenue made from each section of the Arena comes to  N509,407,600 for the floor section, N613,192,800 for the lower tier, and N614,832,000 for the upper tier. The sum of these earnings comes to a total of N1,737,432,400 for the first day, and N5,212,297,200 in gross earnings for the three days the show lasted.

MTN and Udux teamed up with Wizkid two days before the event to stream the concert live on the Nigerian streaming platform, allowing thousands of people who couldn’t attend to watch the show on their phones.

The concert saw him perform songs from his ‘Made in Lagos’ album and other songs from his previous works. Other performances from Chris Brown, which was his first performance in London in 12 years, Skepta, Ella Mai, Buju, shook up the music event and attracted celebrities from around the world like Hollywood actress Gabrielle Union, Stormzy, and Chelsea football club forward Romelu Lukaku.

The business of music needs tours and concerts as they make up important aspects of the careers of artistes and can be a lucrative source of income when organised perfectly.

Ticket sales for the event were first announced on July 27 and sales began online on August 6. In less than 12 minutes, the tickets for the 20,000 capacity were sold out making him the 7th highest artiste globally to sell out the arena in under 15 minutes.
