Wizkid announced Headline artiste for “Yam Carnival” This August

After making its debut last year, Yam Carnival is returning to Clapham Common this August and they’ve announced Wizkid as headliner.

The Nigerian Afrobeats star made London his own last year when he took over London’s O2 Arena for a star-studded three-day leg of his Made In Lagos tour, and if he brings just one-tenth of that energy, then Yam Carnival is going to be really quite something.

Joining Wizkid on the bill are fellow Nigerian stars Naira Marley, Flavour, and Ckay, as well as Congolese singer-songwriter Fally Ipupa, South London Afro-fusion artist Gabzy, Ghanaian musician Black Sherif, and British-Ghanaian rhymer ShaSimone. Not only that, but there will also be a special guest hitting the stage, although details on who that could be are being kept strictly under wraps.

Naturally, Amapiano’s also getting a big showing this year with the new Piano People stage set to host a whole raft of names to represent the South African sound, including DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small, Major League DJz, Focalistic, Vigro Deep, Kamo Mphela, DBN Gogo, and Young Stunna.

Yam Carnival takes place August 27 at Clapham Common. For tickets and more info, head here.
