Popular Nigerian musician Wizkid is on his way to being a household name across Africa as he continues to win the hearts of fans all over the continent.
The Come Closer crooner just visited Uganda where he wowed fans with his unique tunes, giving them a show of a lifetime as some fans have described it.
The Starboy CEO, who recently voiced out his concern with how African artists are treated by international show organizers, was also conferred with a traditional title.
Reports have it that Wizkid visited the Buganda Kingdom shrine where he was given the traditional title.
Buganda is a subnational kingdom within Uganda. It is the largest of the traditional kingdoms in present-day Uganda, comprising all of Uganda’s Central Region, including the Ugandan capital Kampala.
Moving on to his long-awaited concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval in Kampala, Wizkid showed Ugandans why international artists are waiting in line to feature him on their tracks.
All of the concert goers saw why Wizkid won The Best International Act at the 2017 edition of the Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards.
He melted more hearts when he stopped his band midway through a performance to warn a fan never to harass a lady.
“Don’t touch that woman. Never ever beat a woman. I said don’t touch that woman,” said Wizkid in a video of the incident captured by a fan.

Wizkid then proceeded to bring the girl up on stage to the delight of the crowd.
He follows the likes of Drake and fellow Nigerian artists D’banj and Phyno who have recently stopped their concerts to admonish fans for assaulting women in the crowd.
Drake stopped his show saying: “If you don’t stop touching girls I’m going to come out there and f*** you up.”
