Star Nigerian singer, Wizkid has finally bowed to pressure and is set to bring his ‘Pop Up’ shop to Nigeria with December set as the date when that will happen.
Wizkid upset a lot of fans with his decision to open up the shop in the US rather than in Nigeria. One of such angered fans called him out in a video, asking why. Yet another fans commented on his post asking when the ‘Pop Up’ shop would come to Nigeria and Wizkid responded with the December date.
The announcement will thrill fans who had been pissed that he opened shop elsewhere but home and ahead of the December launch, many fans will start saving up in anticipation.
Wizkid was just a few days ago described as the hottest pop star in Africa by Vogue magazine before announcing the date of his “Made in Lagos” worldwide tour yesterday. This latest announcement is guaranteed to keep his stranglehold of headlines even firmer.
