Wizkid Made His Runway Debut Over the Weekend & Folks Couldn't Get Enough
Who knew Starboy could slay a catwalk like this?
Not only is Wizkid an international pop star, but it looks like the Nigerian artist may also have a serious future in modeling—who knew?
Starboy was in Milan, Italy over the weekend, where he graced Dolce & Gabana's SS19 menswear catwalk, alongside supermodel Naomi Campbell, who has been increasingly and vocally supportive of all things afrobeats and Nigerian culture, since she visited the country back in April. British-Nigerian rapper Tinie Tempah also hit the runway during the show.

Wizkid donned a gold studded ski mask and floral embroidered jacket and pants for his runway debut. The artist shared a quick video recap of his runway experience on Instagram, with his hit song "Soco" playing in the background.
Wizkid did his thing on the runway and his fans have certainly taken notice. They've been showing the artist non-stop love since images from the show surfaced this weekend.
