Investigation Underway After Fans Crashed London Wizkid Show

Social media footage showed fans storming through security gates ahead of the show

Security procedures are being reviewed by London’s O2 Arena after fans broke into Wizkid’s show at the venue Sunday night (Nov. 28).

Social media footage showed fans storming through security gates ahead of the show, one of three dates the Nigerian singer is playing at the arena.

A spokesperson for the venue told The Independent that the situation was eventually “contained.”

“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,” they said. “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.”

At the show, which is part of Wizkid’s Made In Lagos tour, the singer brought Chris Brown and Skepta on stage.

The “Essence” singer will return to the venue Monday and Wednesday for the final two shows.

Fan footage captured the surge on social media — watch below.
