Lagos-born Wizkid is one of Nigeria’s biggest R&B crossover acts, going global following his 2016 collaboration ‘One Dance’ with beat-master Drake. He has seen universal success, selling out three successive dates at London’s O2 Arena and releasing the now Grammy-nominated “Essence” (featuring Tems), which became the first Nigerian song to chart in the Billboard Hot 100. His impact on the UK, US and Nigerian R&B scenes is immeasurable, with his joyous afrobeat-laden pop uniting his Lagosian heritage and culture into a rhythmic banquet that is fast conquering the globe. This will be the first time he’s performed at Gopuff delivers Wireless Festival since 2017.
Having received co-signs from both Nas and 50 Cent, A Boogie wit da Hoodie is making waves in the trap-hop world. Blowing up with his 2018 LP ‘Hoodie SZN’, Boogie’s bright melodies and relatable lyrics have seen him go triple-platinum with hit single ‘Walking’. He has collaborated with the likes of Lil Uzi Vert, finding huge commercial success with later releases ‘Artist 2.0’ and 2021’s EP ‘B4 AVA’. A bonafide hit-maker and one to watch.
This will be North-West London rapper Nines debut performance at Gopuff delivers Wireless Festival. Nines led the grime scene into its golden age with his blunt, honest recollections of council estate life. His debut mixtape ‘From Church Road to Hollywood’ came out in 2012 to critical acclaim. It was followed by a slew of releases that saw the multi-hyphenate win a MOBO for both his 2020 album ‘Crabs In A Bucket’ and ‘Best Hip-Hop Act’, leading the new wave of contemporary rap.
The full list of talent across each site is below. Don’t miss out on your ticket to this staggering line-up of the world’s most exciting modern performers.
