Superstar singer Wizkid has finally had his personal Instagram account verified by the photo-sharing website moments after drake posted a picture of him today.
The ‘baba nla’ (as he calls himself) singer recently became the first Nigerian singer to appear in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This was thanks to his feature on Drake’s One Dance alongside Kyla.
Wizkid has become a global superstar. He is establishing himself in the American industry while remaining a dominant force in his native Africa. The singer is currently in Sierra Leone for the country’s Independence celebrations. He was personally received by President Ernest Bai Koroma, a show of Wizkid’s influence around the continent.
Only a few Nigerian celebrities have been verified on Instagram, and Wizkid now joins elite company that includes Davido, Don Jazzy and Genevieve Nnaji.
Congratulations to Wizkid!
