According to an Instagram post made available on his Twitter page, this feat was achieved as he became the first African artist to ever sell out the Skyway Theatre in Minnesota, US on Saturday, October 6, 2018.
Also taking to his instagram page, Wizkid shared a post on the event with the caption, ”Sold out again last night! Love u Minnesota, y’all in my heart forever.”
