Nigeria: Wizkid Receives Grammy Plaque

Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, Nigerian superstar popularly known as Wizkid, has finally received his Grammy award plaque.

The famous Singer won the best Music video award at the 63rd Grammy award for his collaboration with Beyoncé and her daughter, Blue Ivy, in "Brown skin girl".

Wizkid had his first Nomination in 2015, when he collaborated with Drake in his Album Views.

He also brought the trophy home back then.

Critics of Star boy as he is fondly called have argued that he is not worthy to be called a Grammy winner because he got both plaques through collaboration but his fans rose in his defence.

The Starboy became the only contemporary Nigerian musician besides Burna Boy to shine at the 2020 Grammys.

Wizkid took to his Insta story to showcase his trophy.
