Nigerian musician Wizkid on Monday night joined American superstar rapper Drake on stage to perform their collaboration, “Come Closer” at the O2 Arena in London.
Wizkid, who was not part of the set list, surprised the 20,000 crowd at the venue when Drake invited him on stage to perform with him during his “Assassination Vacation” tour.
The duo have collaborated on two songs; the global chart-topping blockbuster hit “One Dance” and “Come Closer”.
Drake, who appeared to have been excited with the Afro-pop star’s performance, requested for one more song from Wizkid.
The DJ immediately played ‘Soco,’ one of Wizkid’s hit single which further worked the crowd into a frenzy.

Wizkid’s performance at Drake’s show means the Nigerian star has graced the 02 Arena four times.
In 2014, Tinie Tempah invited him on stage for his Demonstration tour.
Wizkid went on to perform in 2017 when Future invited him on stage during his “Future Hndrxx Tour”.
In 2018 Wizkid headlined a sold-out show and now he has made his history performing with Drake during his “Assassination Vacation” tour.
