  • Wizkid is certainly not looking at local brands to further enrich himself by picking up bespoke modeling jobs in the fashion industry.

  • To prove that Wizkid is working towards making cool millions from the fashion industry, Dolce & Gabbana and Nike can testify to the singer's worth.


Nigerian Afro-pop singer, Wizkid is already making out extra income from the fashion industry as a celebrity model.

Interestingly, the singer isn’t looking at local brands to further enrich himself by picking up bespoke modeling jobs in the fashion industry.

Following the path of his erstwhile boss, Banky W, who now ekes out his income by taking up jobs in modeling and movie industry, Wizkid is giving his modeling abilities good attention.

In 2018, Wizkid registered his presence on the international scene as not only a talented entertainer from Nigeria but also one with interests in the entire package - which include merchandising, modeling and endorsements.

The Dolce & Gabbana deal

In June 2018, Wizkid’s style and fame caught the attention of globally acclaimed brand, Dolce & Gabbana.

The singer and record label owner was contacted for the Dolce & Gabbana Summer 2019 Fashion show in Milan.

Wizkid’s participation at the show in Milan would see D&G coughing out at least $20,000 for the Starboy.
