Wizkid was in attendance alongside other celebrities, but his link-up with Saka, who is of Nigerian descent, drew reactions from fans on social media.

Both Wizkid and Saka are fondly referred to as Starboy, due to their achievements in their different fields.

Saka, on the other hand, will make his UEFA Champions League debut for Arsenal on Wednesday, September 20, against Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven in a Group B fixture at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal faced the Dutch side last season in the Europa League during the group stage. The English side won the first leg 1-0 at home, but lost 2-0 in the reverse fixture in the Netherlands.

After the PSV tie, the Gunners will face North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium.

Saka, Son meet ahead of London derby

Sports Brief earlier reported that Saka and Heung-min Son sent the internet into a meltdown after the two were spotted together ahead of this weekend's North London Derby.

The two titans will come face to face for the first time this season on September 24 when Spurs make the short trip across London to the Emirates Stadium. It will be the first time that Ange Postecoglou will be taking part in this derby.

However, the derby had an intriguing twist when Saka and new Spurs skipper, Son, were spotted taking photographs at Burberry SS24 during London Fashion Week.
