Watch Drake Bring Out Wizkid at His London O2 Arena Show

They performed "Come Closer" and "Soco."

Drake is currently in the middle of his Assassination Vacation tour across the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Since the beginning of the month, he's been taking on an impressive seven show run at London's O2 Arena, which was turned into the O3 for this residency. He's already brought out notable guests like the newly-freed J Hus for some of his shows.

For his concert on Monday, April 8, Drake brought out none-other-than Wizkid.

The Nigerian star, who himself had just wrapped-up a Canadian tour across Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Edmonton, came out to a warm reception from the 20,000 capacity crowd.

Wizkid performed his Sounds From The Otherside single "Come Closer" alongside Drake and went on to also play his more recent huge hit, "Soco." He came on right after Drake played "One Dance," which Wizkid was also featured on and helped write.

At a recent press stop ahead of his Toronto show, Wizkid revealed that he has two new albums on the way as well as a new collaboration with Drake.

During that press conference the Nigerian artist said, "That's my brother man, big shout out to Drake, that's the real one right there… It's always exciting. He's like one of the biggest artists in the world. I do my own little thing in Africa, around the world [laughs]. So it's always amazing when you get into the studio with an artist that is as talented as you but in a different wave, different vibe."

Tory Lanez has also been joining Drake on his European tour, he recently dropped a free mixtape that features covers of Wizkid and Davido.
