Today, the American state of Minnesota observes Wizkid Day in honor of the legendary Afrobeats performer Wizkid.
The event began in 2019 when Governor Mark Dayton proclaimed October 6th as Wizkid Day in the City.
The Governor stated that the recognition is in honor of Wizkid’s musical accomplishments and his role as a cultural influencer in the sealed and stamped paper designating the day.
In 2019, Wizkid made history by becoming the first African performer to sell out the Skyway Theatre in Minneapolis.
Since then, Wizkid has accomplished a lot with his music, including selling out the famous 02 Arena for three straight nights, reaching the Billboard Top 10, and collecting numerous honors.
For being the first and only Nigerian and African musician to have his record sell more than 500,000 copies in the United States, he recently won an RIAA platinum plaque.
Minnesota is located in the upper midwestern part of the country. It is both the 12th largest and 22nd most populous state in the United States of America.
