Nigerians has took to social media to react as Wizkid receives his Grammy Plague, some showed a positive reaction while some didn’t.
Much loved Nigerian music star, Wizkid, recently shunned naysayers after finally sharing a photo of his Grammy plaque.
The Made in Lagos crooner had built a reputation of not sharing too much about himself on social media and it has led to some fans making assumptions about him.
Wizkid was named as a Grammy winner by the award organisers for his work with Beyonce on her Brown Skin Girl track. However, there had been arguments that he wasn’t qualified to be called a Grammy winner because it wasn’t his song.
However, Wizkid seemed to set the record straight and shun his detractors after posting a photo of his Grammy plaque on his Instagram story. On the plaque, it was boldly written that he won the award for Best Music Video alongside Beyonce and Blue Ivy for Brown Skin Girl.
This caused an uproar on social media with internet users praising the singer. Others also called out fellow music star, Seun Kuti, who had claimed Wizkid didn’t qualify to be called a Grammy winner because the song belonged to Beyonce.
Fela’s youngest son Seun Kuti had said he was one of the four Nigerians who were nominated for a Grammy award. Seun stated this during a live video on IG after a follower said he does not sing good songs.
Seun stated that featuring on a Grammy award-winning song does not make the person a nominee. The young musician noted that Grammy organisers called him to enter their show. Well, a photo of Wizkid’s Grammy plaque seems to have reminded fans of Seun’s statement.
