Nigerian Afrobeats stars Wizkid and Tems reunited at the Essence Festival of Culture to perform their global hit single “Essence”.
In their first joint live performance of the song in two years, Wizkid and Tems thrilled the concert-going fans with their impressive chemistry and on-stage brilliance.
The 29th edition of the festival was held at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans. Missy Elliot, Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion, Remy Ma, Ms. Lauryn Hill, and Jermaine Dupri also performed at the festival.
‘Essence’ is the 11th track on Wizkid’s critically acclaimed fifth studio album, “Made In Lagos”. The single is one of the biggest Afrobeats exports internationally and it has enjoyed impressive success in the US and the UK where it charted on the Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Official Singles Chart respectively.
A remix with American pop star Justin Bieber was released in August 2021 and since then has peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, also enjoying commercial success earning platinum plaques in the US, UK, Canada, South Africa and other countries.
