Super Star Grammy award winner, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun popularly known as Wizkid has finally received his award plaque.
The legendary Nigerian singer who achieved a record feat at the 63rd Grammy Awards, bagging the Best Music Video award for his collaboration with Beyonce in the song “Brown Skin Girl”, took to his Insta-stories moment ago to flaunt his trophy.
See his post below.
This is coming after singer, Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti popularly known as Seun Kuti, stated that it’s wrong to consider Nigerian artiste who are nominated as a result of featuring in a song with an international artiste, Grammy nominees.
According to him, only four Nigerian artists; Burna Boy, his brother, Femi Kuti, King Sunny Ade and himself have been nominated for the prestigious award.
In his words,
“There are only four artists in Nigeria that have ever been nominated for Grammys. I’m one of them. They are only four! Forget all these people you’re attaching on featuring. When you’re featured, you’re not nominated. It’s not your song.
Only four artists! My brother, me, Burna, Sunny Ade.. Finish! No other person in Nigeria. They are not doing it with Nigerian flag.”
His statement is speculated to be a shade directed at superstar singer.
