Wizkid is Linking Up with Nike to Drop a “Starboy” Football Jersey


August 29th 2018

Nike and Wizkid have collaborated to make Starboy his very own football jersey.

The Nigerian artist unveiled the jersey at Reading festival, and will be the first African artist to have his own jersey with the company after previously starring alongside Alex Iwobi in the Swoosh brands Naija World Cup kit range for then Super Eagles.

The jersey features a Naija-coloured trim, a circular “Super Eagles / Naija / Wizkid” emblem and a “SURULERE” motif – the area of Lagos Wizkid and his family grew up in. Check them out below.
