Brown was banned from entering the UK in 2010 after he was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna
During the first of his sold-out shows at the O2 Arena in London, he brought out controversial R&B artist Chris Brown.
The Nigerian singer was on the road for his Made in Lagos tour. The inaugural show set a new record for the fastest-selling Afrobeats show, selling out in less than 12 minutes.
Wizkid pulled out special guests, including Nigerian artist Tems and UK rapper Skepta, during his concert yesterday night (Sunday, November 28).
Chris Brown appeared on stage to sing “Go Crazy,” his upcoming collaboration with Young Thug.
It was the controversial R&B singer’s first appearance in the United Kingdom in over a decade. Following being arrested in 2009 for attacking his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, after a Grammy celebration, Brown was barred from entering the UK in 2010.
Last year, though, rumors circulated that the restriction had been removed after Brown was sighted in a London restaurant in October.
Brown was placed under investigation earlier this year after a lady said he had abused her. It was announced in October that he would not face charges in connection with the alleged event owing to “insufficient evidence.”
In 2013, Brown was also involved in a physical incident with Frank Ocean.
In 2015, he was denied an Australian visa due to “character concerns.”
In scenes less than a month after the disastrous Astroworld crowd crush in the United States, fans stormed the security barriers and charged their way into Wednesday night’s show.
The situation was eventually “contained” and solved by the arena’s security staff, according to the O2.
