Wizkid

Fans of Nigerian pop music star Ibrahim Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, have taken to social media to celebrate “Wizkid Day.”

Let us remember that in 2018, Mark Dayton, Governor of Minnesota, United States of America, declared October 6 of each year as “Wizkid Day”.

Citing several historic feats performed by the artist in the proclamation, the Afrobeat star became the first African artist to sell out the Skyway Theater. This event occurred at the #MadeInLagos concert held in the state.

Here are the comments from some fans on twitter;

@AtvanOnline wrote “And today the entire Wizkid FC joins the people of Minnesota in the USA in celebrating the king of Afrobeat for so many reasons. Happy Wizkid day. MIL #WorldWizkidDay “

@ borlahdee18 wrote “Ayo Balogun is a national treasure, protect him at all costs 🎉🎶❤ #WorldWizkidDay”

@ MDee01 tweeted “In 2012, Wizkid became the FIRST AFRICAN ARTIST in history to deplete HMV APOLLO (5000) in London. From that point on, you hardly see African artists selling their 3k capacity outside of Africa. But this young man here did that in 2012. #WorldWizkidDay “
