Afrobeats Superstar Wizkid Shells Out $10,000 for Custom Neck Tattoo

Afrobeats Superstar Wizkid Shells Out $10,000 for Custom Neck Tattoo.

Nigerian musical star, Ibrahim Ayodeji, a.k.a. Wizkid, has a new tattoo on his neck.

The word ‘Pray’ was tattooed on his neck after a musician, $traffitti, had designed same word. He was apparently so excited to announce that he got $10,000 as a reward for his work of art.

Taking to his X handle (formerly Twitter), $traffitti wrote: “WIZ TOLD MR $SUNDAYYY TO “$QUEEZEE” 10,000$ IN MY HAND FOR HI$ NECK DE$IGN! CRAZYYY😂!!”

At the current exchange rate at the Nigerian parallel market, $10,000 equals N11.5million in local currency.

According to Wikipedia, tattoos may be decorative (with no specific meaning), symbolic (with a specific meaning to the wearer), or pictorial (a depiction of a specific person or item). Many tattoos serve as rites of passage, marks of status and rank, symbols of religious and spiritual devotion, decorations for bravery, marks of fertility, pledges of love, amulets and talismans, protection, and as punishment, like the marks of outcasts, slaves and convicts.

Extensive decorative tattooing has also been part of the work of performance artists such as tattooed ladies.
