This Is What Wizkid's Starboy Pop-Up in Joburg Looked Like

In photos: the Starboy pop-up touches down in South Africa.

Wizkid brought his Starboy pop-up to Joburg last week on Saturday.

The Nigerian artist was in South Africa for the Global Citizen concert, Mandela 100. The Starboy event was hosted at Braamfontein's Empty Space, a shop that has hosted several pop-ups beforehand. For instance, Shane Eagle hosted his Yellow Universe merchandise shop there earlier this year.


On sale were items from the artist's Starboy merchandise range including T-shirts, jackets and hoodies, alongside posters and stickers.

The event attracted all the cool kids of Braam, who copped some merch and just kicked it, before Wiz arrived in the afternoon causing the world to stop just a bit, as he made a grand entrance and eventually disappeared behind the store's backroom.
