Published

on

Nigeria music superstars Tiwa Savage, Wizkid will headline Livespot X Festival two date concerts slated for December 17 and 19, 2021 respectively.

The artistes who are fresh off hugely successful bodies of work will be making live appearances at the first-ever weeklong concert experience in Lagos. They will be joined by Nigerian song bird, Tems.

Tiwa Savage is still reeling off of the excitement of her newly released E.P. Water and Garri and smash-hit single Somebody Son. With a career spanning over a decade, Tiwa will build on the success of past editions of Livespot360’s produced concerts featuring Kim Kardashian, Ciara, Cardi B and more.

Wizkid on the other hand has just won the Best African Act at the 2021 MTV EMA Awards. This comes days after Big Wiz coveted five nominations at the 2021 BET Soul Train Awards.

Wizkid has had a streak of wins in recent times, especially with his Made in Lagos album that recorded over 100 million streams on Apple music. The song Essence, featuring Tems, also became the first Nigerian album to spend a year on Billboard World Album charts.

Still reeling off of the excitement of her album, If Orange was a Place, a Billboard Hot 100 hit song, several nods from BET, MTV, The Headies and a Drake feature, Tems is one of the fastest-rising acts out of Africa and the song Essence, featuring her, also became the first Nigerian song to spend a year on Billboard World Album charts.

Tems will build on the success of past editions of Livespot360’s produced concerts featuring Kim Kardashian, Ciara, Cardi B and more as she has assured that her music lovers and fans will be treated to her best performance yet at the concert A Place Called Orange, taking place at the Live spot Entertainment Center in Lagos.

The artistes have assured that music lovers and fans watching online and offline will be treated to their best performances yet. Livespot360 has also revealed that the Livespot X Festival will give Nigerians an exciting end to the year while being fully compliant with the current pandemic era. The concert series, which is targeted at a diverse audience, will feature concert days tailor-made to suit different categories of attendees with exciting multi-sensory experiences and several established artists billed to perform.

“The past two years have been tough on everybody, but we all recorded wins in one way or another and it is time to celebrate,” the artist said. “I’ve been on tour across the world, it is now time for my day one fans to experience the best live concert in recent memory, and I’m looking forward to making that a reality,” Wizkid said.

With no other major week-long concert experience to look forward to this December, fans have a lot to expect from Livespot X Festival. The six-day event will also feature other music superstars due to be announced soon.

According to CEO, Livespot360, Deola Art Alade, the 2021 edition of Livespot X Festival will be a “multi-day hybrid convergence of everything X-traordinary, X-citing and X-clusive, that celebrates urban pop-culture. After a tumultuous 24 months, we’re excited to give Nigerians a string of hybrid events that feature headline acts performing live, special acts, pristine sound, world-class lighting, immersive experiences, exotic cuisine and much more.”

With the postponement of Livespot X in 2020, the creative collective has promised an experience that is designed to meet and exceed the expectations of Nigerians especially during Detty December.

“We were looking forward to hosting Nigerians at Livespot X Festival last year but with the ebb in COVID-19 cases, it was only right to suspend our plans,” Deola said.

With over 50 performances planned and over 30,000 attendees expected over the 6 day period, the Livespot X Festival promises to be a concert experience unlike any other as Chief Creative Director, Livespot 360, Darey Art Alade, said, “with the year coming to an end, everyone is yearning to make the most out of the festive season by safely engaging in activities that will make them forget the travails of 2020 and 2021 and cherish every single moment moving forward. Livespot X Festival is determined to bring some cheer and happiness to the ever-bubbly city of Lagos through several X-clusive, and X-citing experiences, that will uplift our spirits and birth a positive vibe as we hope for a better 2022.”
