Wizkid and his Band gave a Live Performance at the wedding yesterday, and he got Indians dancing to his songs like Soco, Fake Love and more. According to a post made by a twitter user World Publicist, the Nigerian pop star joined the list of the highest paid artists in the world after being paid such a huge amount:

It’s however unclear if this new achievement makes him the “first African artist” to join the list. Earlier this year, Wizkid signed a deal with sportswear giant Nike to produce and sell the Star Boy jerseys making him the first African artist to have an official jersey.
