Award winning Nigerian superstar WizKid is set to storm the UK this summer as he embarks on his first major UK tour.

He has achieved massive success on the continent and his rising popularity has seen him perform with stars like Rick Ross and Tinie Tempah. He is the first Nigerian Afrobeats star to sign to Akon’s Konvict Musik label and his record breaking debut album “Superstar” has made him an international musical phenomenon.

WizKid’s Starboy tour will feature Afrobeats favourites including Don’t Dull and Tease Me as well as unheard tracks from his eagerly awaited upcoming album. Choice FM’s Eddie Kadi will host the show with top Afrobeats DJ Neptizzle on decks.

Also performing on the night will be south London rapper Sneakbo who will bring a local flavour to the African line-up.

The WizKid Star Boy UK Tour kicks off at the prestigious Birdcage in Manchester on Sunday 03 June then hits London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Monday 04 June 2012.
