Wizkid Day: Minnesota Government Yet To Issue Official Statement

Despite the hoopla that has trailed the allegation on the social media , the State of Minnesota , U . S. , has yet to issue an official statement about the alleged declaration of October 6 as Wizkid Day .

According to trending tweets and video , sensational musician Ayo Balogun , aka Wizkid , was honoured with a day in the American state , where he performed at the Skyway Theatre on October 6 .

Although a photograph of the said declaration is available on Twitter and the singer actually retweeted it on his Twitter handle @ wizkidayo , the governor of the state , Mark Dayton , has made no mention of it on his Twitter handle .

According to The Investigations , whenever the State of Minnesota makes such a proclamation as is being claimed by Wizkid and his teeming fans, it is usually gazetted and reported on the state ’ s website via a dedicated URL .

For instance, when Taylor Swift and Beyonce/ JayZ had days dedicated to them , the news was reported vide : Taylor Swift and Beyonce respectively.

Again , official letters issued to Taylor Swift and Beyonce, and published on the state ’ s website, were dated the same day they got the recognition , unlike Wizkid ’ s letter which was dated September 26 th while the Wizkid Day is declared as October 6 .

There was also no mention of Wizkid Day on the Governor ’ s website , or the state ’ s website.

Meanwhile , Wizkid has yet to upload a copy of the purported certificate on his social media pages as of the time of filing this report.

The latest artiste to be honoured with a day is Taylor Swift , and the proclamation was dated August 31 , 2018 , the same day officially allotted as her day .
