KanyiDaily had reported Wizkid was nominated in the Best Global Music Performance category, recognizing new vocal or instrumental Global music recordings.
He also received a second nomination in the Best Global Music Album category for albums containing at least 51% playing time of new vocal or instrumental Global Music recordings.
Wizkid’s loss comes as a surprise to many people who had predicted a double win for the singer in both categories following the success of his hit single “Essence” and album “Made In Lagos”.
Jada Pollock Reacts To Wizkid’s Grammys Loss
In a now-deleted post shared on her Twitter page, the manager accused the Recording Academy committee of judging based on their personal opinions rather than facts.
Sharing a photo of the achievements of both ‘Made In Lagos’ and ‘Essence’ since the album and song were released, Jada wrote: “When it’s all said and done, facts speak louder than a committee full of opinions, I’ll just leave it here.. @RecordingAcad.”
KanyiDaily recalls that British supermodel and actress, Naomi Campbell had also called out the Recording Academy, insisting that Wizkid deserved to win Grammy awards.
