That was fast! Sold out in 10mins!????? Love u all like crazy!??? God working harder than the devil!❤️❤️❤️?
Without a doubt, THIS IS A BIG DEAL. This achievement not only proves Wizkid‘s status as a global superstar, but also shows that African artistes are capable for monetising their brands through merchandising.
Hopefully this will inspire more merchandising partnerships between African artistes and international fashion brands.
Even better is the fact that Wizkid has pledged to use profits from the jersey sales to build a school in Lagos, Nigeria.
Congratulations to Wizkid & the Starboy Entertainment family.
