The O2 is reviewing security procedures after several people stormed into Wizkid’s concert at the venue on Sunday night. Security staff were trying to control the situation as several fans stormed into the security check-in gates at the London arena. Footage of the incident has circulated on social media.
The venue has revealed that they will be looking over their safety protocols to avoid such incidents. They will be ready to prevent such chaos at the two gigs on Monday and Thursday night by Wizkid.
A venue spokesperson told The Independent: “This evening, a breach of the security cordon on the arena entrance occurred and as a result, a number of fans in the queue were able to enter the venue. The situation was quickly contained by staff and the incident resolved.”
“The venue is reviewing security procedures for the remaining shows this week and advises fans to arrive early for security checks tomorrow night and again on Wednesday.”
The ‘Don’t Dull’ star whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, said: “It has been beautiful to see Nigerians around the world coming together to protest against police brutality. Unity is key. The youth of Nigeria need our collective voices to continue to shine a spotlight on what is happening inside the country. I want to play my part in this and in the movement for a better Nigeria, a better place to live for ourselves, our families, and our communities.”
Chris Brown, Skepta, Ella Mai, and Burnaboy were surprise guests at the ‘Made in Lagos’ show. They were there in support of his acclaimed 2020 album. In a press release about his fourth record, Wizkid had an important message of unity about police brutality protests.
