Wizkid, Justin Beiber performs ‘Essence’ to 25,000 crowds at Made In America festival

Wizkid joined Justin Beiber to perform ‘Essence’ to more than 25,000 crowds at the Made In America festival, adding his name to a list of top Nigerian stars to grace the big stage.

Beiber collaborated on the song’s remix which originally featured Tems. Wizkid and Beiber performed the song on stage together for the first time in Philadelphia.

Since the song, which is a track on Wizkid’s Made In Lagos, was released in October, it has become a favourite among music lovers. It has also been breaking records and topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart.


For instance, in July, Wizkid became the first Nigerian artist to have a record on the Billboard Hot 100 chart when Essence broke into the chart at No. 82.

Within days, it rose to No.70 and later to No.67 the next.

In August, the song shot up to the top 20 songs of the Billboard Hot 100 chart and also became the most Shazamed song in the United States for the week in review.
