Ed Sheeran reveals where he’s heading to chill out after his two-year tour

Music superstar Ed Sheeran has revealed he plans to spend some time unwinding in Africa once his two-year tour comes to an end this summer.

The red-haired singer has been travelling the world as part of his Divide Tour. His fame is at an all-time high as the tour is reportedly the second highest grossing music tour of all time, generating an incredible $688,358,075.

Ed Sheeran reveals where he’s heading to chill out after his two-year tourGiven that level of media and public attention, it is understandable that Ed wants to take some time away from the limelight.

The Galway Girl singer said: “I’ve got to get back to Africa. After the tour I want to go and chill out there. I was in Ghana a few years back and I loved it. Now I need to go to Nigeria. I heard the jollof rice is really good there.”

Sheeran has become one of the biggest names in the music world over the past decade, since his breakthrough single The A Team shot him to stardom in 2011.

He has spoken in the past about how he struggled to manage the huge levels of fame he achieved.

Drastic actions such as getting rid of his mobile phone and cutting his friendship group down to just four people are some of the decisions Sheeran has taken to cope with his stardom.

There are also no signs of his light fading anytime soon either. Sheeran currently has several songs in the charts from his latest album, No 6 Collaborations Project.

From the album, his collaborations with Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello and Bruno Mars, Khalid, Eminem and 50 Cent, and Stormzy, are all being downloaded in the millions online.

Sheeran is a hugely popular figure around the world, both for his vast catalogue of great songs, and also his friendly down-to-earth manner.

He has often spoken in the past about his pride of his Irish heritage and has even translated and performed one of his biggest hits, Thinking Out Loud, in Gaeilge.
