The singer made history as the first African artist to walk at one of the famed house’s shows.

Wizkid (real name Ayo Balogun) dazzled in a stylish black and gold outfit, complete with studded mask and luxury jewelry.

Each image of Wizkid walking the runway for Dolce & Gabbana on Saturday has been put up online for sale by Getty Images for $499 (N179,889).

On the American stock photo agency website, photos of the singer included a long shot, his back view, as well as a close shot.

Getty Images is selling the editorial rights to publish the picture of Wizkid for $499 and as low as $50 depending on the buyers preferred size.
