Wizkid, a Nigerian Afrobeats musician, has congratulated veteran singer Angelique Kidjo and DJ Black Coffee on their Grammy wins in 2022.
On Tuesday, Wizkid posted on his Instagram stories, “Love to my brother, a true King, @realblackcoffee and Queen @angeliqueKidjo for consistently shining light on the continent. African music rising.”
On Sunday, Kidjo’s Mother Nature took home the prize for Best Global Music Album, while Black Coffee’s Subconsciously took home the title for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
Although Wizkid’s Made In Lagos and the smash single Essence were both nominated for Best Global Music Album and Best Global Music Performance, they did not win in their respective categories.
Big Wiz’s statement of congratulations came in the midst of his followers’ insults on Kidjo, who believed his Album was more deserving of the honor.
Naomi Campbell, a British model, echoed popular views by criticizing the Grammys for being “tone-deaf on what is going on in the universe.”
Wizkid’s album and song, she claims, were incorrectly classified and should have been in the song of the year category.
