Despite the hoopla that has trailed the allegation on the social media, the State of Minnesota, U.S., has yet to issue an official statement about the alleged declaration of October 6 as Wizkid Day.
According to trending tweets and video, sensational musician Ayo Balogun, aka Wizkid, was honoured with a day in the American state, where he performed at the Skyway Theatre on October 6.
Although a photograph of the declaration is available on Twitter and the singer actually retweeted it on his Twitter handle @wizkidayo, the governor of the state, Mark Dayton, has made no mention of it on his Twitter handle.
There was also no mention of Wizkid Day on the Governor’s website, or the state’s website.
The latest artiste to be honoured with a day is Taylor Swift on August 31, 2018.
