    Fans celebrate World Wizkid Day

    Multiple award-winning singer, Wizkid, is currently trending at number three on the Nigerian Twitter space, courtesy of his fans who are celebrating ‘World Wizkid Day’.

    Although the Starboy was born on July 16, 1990, he is celebrated every October 6, thanks to a former governor of Minnesota, Mark Dayton, who proclaimed the date ‘Wizkid Day’ in 2018.

    According to the document, which was officially signed, stamped and sealed by the former governor during his tenure, the reason behind the declaration was to honour Wizkid for his laudable achievements in music and for his role as a culture influencer.

    Some of the singer’s achievements as mentioned in the document include being the first African artiste to sell out the Skyway Theatre Minneapolis, making a Billboard number one hit ‘One Dance’ with Drake, selling out the O2 Arena London, walking the runway as a model for Dolce and Gabbana, winning countless international awards, among other notable milestone achievements.

    Nigerians took to Twitter to celebrate Big Wiz. For instance, a die-hard fan of the artiste, @wizkidislegend, while celebrating the singer, shared some pictures of the proclamation document and quoted it in part as he wrote, “Three years ago on this day in 2018 ‘Wizkid has inspired Minnesota & music fans around the world, as one of the biggest cultural influencers of our time. Now, therefore, I, Mark Dayton, Governor of Minnesota, do hereby proclaim Saturday, October 6, 2018, as Wizkid Day’.”

    A tweep, @groyaj, simply opined that everyone is a fan of the singer. She tweeted, “Las las everybody na Wizkid FC. Happy World Wizkid Day.”

    Another fan, @19badman, simply believes that every day is world Wizkid day as he tweeted, “Every day is #WorldWizkidDay.”

    So far, the discussion has garnered over 20,00 tweets.
