Over $100,000 budgeted for Wizkid’s 24th birthday

By on

wpid-65598361_img_79471Wizkid turned 24 years old on July 16 and he is determined to make it the most memorable birthday he’s ever had. In fact, he is pretty much trying to make it the most expensive he’s ever going to have.

Going by recent activities and forthcoming plans, when the Nigerian Pop star is done celebrating his born day, NET estimates a total of N20 million (over $100,000) would have been spent!

Already, Wizzy had a birthday party planned for him by Hennessy Nigeria.

The all-star gig was held at Escape Nightclub, Victoria Island, Lagos. Insiders say, unlike any other night at the club, sales were pitched up for the special occasion.

“Drinks sold a lot more on the night, there was henny everywhere but the bar cashed out nicely.”

There was also an almost overhaul of the vicinity; the entrance was beautified with a red carpet and a backdrop. An estimate of expenses incurred on the night totals approximately N3 million (18,489.99).

On July 27, Wizkid says he’ll be taking the party from Lagos to Miami, as he will be riding along the Atlantic Ocean, celebrating with friends on a yacht.

The private party holds a day after his upcoming concert in NYC.

“A lucky Wizkid fan gets to attend my private yacht party on the 27th of July in Miami. i’ll be picking a fan at the NYC Concert on the 26th,” Wizkid announced a week ago.

Wizkid will most probably be flying with his StarBoy crew – flight expenses and accommodation for at least three days total about $25,000 (N4, 000,000).

NET reached out to a couple of Luxury motor yacht rental services in Miami who all sent in several pricing for one-day bookings. The average price totalled approximately $72,500 (N11, 600,000). The service comes with choice drinks, food and security.

Wizkid says he will be having six parties to celebrate his birthday; one down, five more to go.
