Socialite Daisy Lowe, Victoria Secret model Leomie Anderson and TV presenter Reggie Yates were amongst a host of famous faces spotted at last night’s exclusive Wizkid gig at O2 Forum Kentish Town, hosted by Virgin Media O2. The event was to celebrate the fact that 5.7 million Virgin Media cable customers now have access to Priority from O2 and a huge range of perks and rewards.
Ahead of his sold-out UK tour, Nigerian Afrobeats superstar Wizkid performed to an intimate crowd made up exclusively of Priority users after 800 lucky fans won a pair of tickets to one of the most anticipated performances of the year.
Amongst the star-studded guest list was stylish South-London singer Joy Crookes, British rapper Lady Leshurr and model Neelam Gill who sported 90s inspired low-rise jeans with a belly chain. England Rugby star Maro Itoje was also spotted enjoying the performance with grime duo Krept and Konan who wore balaclavas.
The celebrity guest-list and lucky Priority customers enjoyed an exclusive preview of Wizkid’s ‘Made in Lagos’ tour which sold out The O2 three times. The star’s first London show in two years featured performances of hit single Essence as well as Smile and Ginger.
The gig was a celebration of Virgin Media broadband, TV and landline customers now being able to access once-in-a-lifetime experiences, daily treats and exclusive access to the UK’s hottest events via the popular rewards app from O2.
Millions more people can now benefit from a range of perks including Priority Tickets, which gives access to tickets for thousands of events and gigs at hundreds of venues across the UK up to 48 hours before general sale, and rewards from high street brands.
This news comes following Virgin Media and O2 joining forces earlier this year. In addition to being available to even more people, the Priority app will also be enhanced with a series of exciting new offers from Virgin brands.
Virgin Media O2 is the leading converged challenger in the market, pairing O2’s award winning mobile network and the UK’s fastest major broadband provider to enhance connectivity for customers at home and on the go.
