Social Media Roundup: A (re)union made in heaven

by | Dec 29, 2017

In Nigeria, the end of the year is usually the season of concerts. From the beginning of December this year, several Nigerian artistes have had their concerts and this week is no different. On Sunday, December 24, Wizkid held his much anticipated homecoming concert dubbed “Wizkid the Concert” which had thousands of music fans in attendance.

The highlight of the night was when Wizkid welcomed Davido, his supposed rival on stage. Watch the video below.

Here’s how Nigerians reacted on social media.
