NIGERIAAmerican Governor Declares October 6 “Wizkid Day”

Wizkid Gets A Day Named After Him

Multiple award-winning Nigerian afro-beat Superstar Wizkid has hit a record milestone in his career as he is honoured in the United States of America by the governor of Minnesota Mark Dayton.

Just recently Wizkid sold out his #MadeInLagos concert held at the Skyway Theatre in Minneapolis, a feat achieved only by Beyoncé in Minnesota, thus making the “Soco” hit maker the first African artiste to do this.

Following this, Governor Mark Dayton declared every October 6 as Wizkid Day in the state.

The highly esteemed Africa’s Starboy has had a great 2018 so far making history along the way.

Wizkid, who was recently named “The Hottest Popstar in Africa” by Vogue Magazine just released two bangers “Fever” and “Master Groove” and as expected they are the two hottest song on the airwaves now.


Ever since achieving International recognition two years ago following his appearance on Drake’s chart-topping and award-winning “One Dance”, Wizkid has been on a roll of awesomeness. Earlier this year, he became the first Nigerian artiste to sell out the 20,000-capacity 02 Arena in London for his Afrorepublik Concert.

Not long after, he became the first African artiste to walk the runway for Dolce and Gabbana, and also signed a deal with Nike.

These and several other feats are stated as reasons for honouring Wizkid. Surely, despite the poor reputations that the Nigerian people might have outside its shores, Wizkid is working hard at positively representing the country and taking its culture to greater heights, and we are very proud of him.
