Nigerian singer and songwriter, Wizkid has linked up with Nike to release a new collaborative jersey which pays homage to his STARBOY Entertainment record label, and his Nigerian roots.
Born in Surulere, Lagos, the name of Wizkid’s Nigerian hometown is emblazoned on the lower back of the artist’s collaborative Nike jersey, a shirt that simultaneously speaks to his local pride and Naija’s cultural clout. The jersey’s green and white trimmings reflect the Nigerian flag, as does a Naija graphic on the sleeve, while the front features a centrally-placed Nike Swoosh and is highlighted by the iconic Starboy graphic across the chest.
The overall design is a fitting celebration of both personal and collective talent and ingenuity, and one that defines Wizkid’s dizzying accomplishments and Nigeria’s growing cultural footprint.
The jersey will be available from the Nike web store from Monday, 10 September 2018.
