This Is What Wizkid's Starboy Pop-Up in New York City Looked Like

The afrobeats star debuted his Starboy merch exclusively at REIGN.

Wizkid had a show-stopping weekend at One Africa Fest in New York City, but kicked it off by first showing fans love at his Starboy Pop-Up in the Meatpacking District Saturday afternoon.

The afrobeats star debuted his Starboy merchandise collection at REIGN, the retail shop that has the threads on lock exclusively for purchase. Supporters and tastemakers gathered to peruse and support the line's three t-shirts, hoodie, bomber jackets, bandanas, stickers, badges, posters, pins and Starboy cups.

The event was definitely a vibe—the positive connection Wizkid has with his fans is infectious. Take a look at images from the pop-up, shot by Samuel Kwame Osei, below.

Listen to MHD and Wizkid's New Single 'Bella'

MHD gets the Nigerian star to join him for this addictive new track.

MHD is the French rapper of Guinean and Senegalese descent who's been spearheading an "Afro Trap" revolution out of his base in Paris—and getting hundreds of millions of views on Youtube while he's at it.

For his latest single, "Bella," the buzzing rapper gets none-other-than Wizkid to join him over some twinkling keys and mid-tempo beat work.

"Bella" is the second single we've heard from MHD's highly-anticipated new album, 19, named for Paris' 19th arrondissement where he grew up. The album's set for release September 19 on Motown Records.

The new track is a step away from the hard-hitting "Afro Trap" beats MHD usually raps over, but it's the kind of groove that Starboy is definitely very used to.

Previous to this drop, MHD most recently released the high-energy "Bodyguard."

For more from the buzzing French rapper, check out our exclusive OkayAfrica interview with him.

Check out MHD and Wizkid's "Bella" and watch the KLVDR-directed new music video for the single below.
