The American State of Minnesota has declared October 6 as the ‘Wizkid Day’.
This proclamation was made by Mark Dayton, the Mayor of Minnesota, as a way of celebrating the Nigerian Music star, shortly after Wizkid’s sold out concert at the Skyway Theatre in Minnesota, US on Saturday, October 6, 2018.
According to a post made available on his Twitter page, this feat was achieved as he became the first African artist to ever sell out the Skyway Theatre in Minnesota, US on Saturday, October 6, 2018.
