KanyiDaily recalls that Wizkid’s ‘Made In Lagos’ bagged a Grammy nomination in the Best Global Music Album category, while his hit single ‘Essense’ was nominated for the Best Global Music Performance.
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”.
Wizkid’s manager, Pada Pollock had accused the Recording Academy committee of making judgments based on their personal opinions rather than facts.
British supermodel and actress, Naomi Campbell had also called out the Recording Academy, insisting that Wizkid deserved to win Grammy awards.
