October 6: Fans Celebrate World Wizkid Day


October 6: Fans Celebrate World Wizkid DayFans of multiple award-winning singer, Ibrahim Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, have taken to social media to celebrate “World Wizkid Day”.

Although the Starboy, as he is fondly called 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 O2 Arena London, walking the runway as a model for Dolce and Gabbana, winning countless international awards, among other notable milestone achievements.

Fans have now taken to Twitter to celebrate Big Wiz, with some sharing some of his achievements and others praying for him.
