International talent management agency, Storm Model Management has added our ‘Starboy’, Wizkid to their roster of artistes in the Storm Artistes segment of their management outfit. This move cements Wizkid’s affiliation with the global fashion industry after courting major deals with brands like Nike and Moschino.
Recall that Wizkid made his runway debut in 2018 at Dolce & Gabbana’s SS19 Menswear show, becoming the first African artiste to walk that walk. He followed up this feat with a modelling gig in the campaign for the Ciroc x Moschino capsule collection. And then he teamed up with Nike and Daily Paper to produce the limited edition ‘Starboy’ merchandise line.
Storm Model Management has a 30-year history of scouting some of the world’s most famous models – from Kate Moss to Naomi Campbell – and they set up Storm Artists in a bid to “maximise and develop creative and commercial opportunities for significant talent outside of the fashion industry.”
Way to go, Wizzy!
