It came in as a big surprise to fans as Minnesota, US. Mark Dayton, Governor of Minnesota last Saturday, declared October 6 as WIZKID Day!
This honors comes in respect to his several achievements in music and as a cultural influencer. Some of the feats include making a Billboard number one hit ‘One Dance’ with Drake, selling out the O2 Arena London, walking the runway with Dolce and Gabbana. Others include winning international awards and recently becoming the first African artist to sell out the Skyway Theatre Minneapolis.
An official proclamation was made in that regards bearing the seal of the US state of Minnesota and signed by the Governor.
