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.
