At the VIP opening night private exhibition of “Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto” at the famous Victoria and Albert Museum in London on September 13, 2023, Nigerian singer Wizkid made a rare public appearance following the passing of his mother.
The performer looked dapper in a black ensemble and calm yet gloomy as he mixed with other guests at the occasion. He was observed ogling the vintage Chanel couture garments, fabrics, images, and accessories that were on exhibit.
Wizkid made his first public appearance at the Chanel event after his mother Jane Dolapo died away on August 18, 2023. On social media, his admirers showed their support and conveyed how thrilled they were to see him.
The “Made in Lagos” hitmaker’s attendance at the high-end exhibition is indicative of his standing as an afrobeats tastemaker. He has established himself as one of Nigeria’s most fashionable entertainers, frequently seen wearing expensive clothing from labels like Dolce & Gabbana. His participation in the Chanel event highlights his escalating reputation as a major global fashion figure.
