Singer Wizkid nominated for Grammy Awards
« on: December 07, 2016, 01:15:35 AM »

Nigerian music superstar, Wizkid, has been tagged in the prestigious Grammy Awards nominees list for his role in Drake’s hit single “One Dance”.

The track, which also features Kyla, is off Drake’s award winning album “Views” which stood out as one of the best albums released in 2016.

Drake’s album, in which Wizkid appeared, made the highly coveted “Album of the year” category, competing against other award winning artistes like Adele, Beyonce, and Justin Bieber.

Wizkid has had a tremendous year with top notch awards credited to him.

Worthy of mentions are his Bill Board appearance as the first Nigerian to emerge on that list, MTV Europe Music Awards (Best African Act), 2016 MAMA awards (Best African Act), 2016 MOBO Awards, AFRIMA awards, the Headies (Nomination), and just recently, his appearance on the Grammy Awards among others.

Wizkid’s international prominence started when his Ojuelegba hit single had American rapper Drake and English rapper with Nigerian descent, Skepta, on the remix.

Prior to this time, the award was only given to the main artiste but this year’s edition of the Grammy Awards would see contributing acts and producers going home with awards as well.

The 59th edition of the Grammy’s has 84 categories.
