Wizkid has been nominated for Grammy awards in more than one category at least, a wonderful 2016 for Starboy boss. The Nigerian pop star makes the list for his contribution to Drake’s 2016 “Views” album. Wizkid was a prominent contributor on the lead single, ‘One Dance’, where he is nominated as a guest artiste, and also as a producer. The Grammy Award for Album of the Year is presented by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to
“honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position. Album of the Year is the most prestigious
award category at the Grammys having been presented since 1959. Although Grammy Album of the Year was originally presented to the artist alone, the award is now presented to the main artist, the featured artist(s), the producer, the engineer and/or mixer and the mastering engineer. If this award is won by Drake’s ‘Views’ album, Wizkid will be going home with two Grammy awards for production and guest feature on
the album. The Nigerian pop superstar is currently enjoying a great year in his career. Wizkid struck gold at this year’s MTV EMAs, earning one trophy at the global music spectacular show. The Nigerian star was honoured with trophy for Worldwide Act. Prior to this, Wizkid had earlier been announced as the winner of the Best African Act at the The 2016 Music of Black Origin, MOBO Awards ceremony, which took place in Glasgow, Scotland. Also, at the 2016 AFRIMA awards which held at the Eko Convention Centre, Eko Hotels & Suites, Wizkid was honoured as the Best Artiste on the continent. He came out victorious in a category that
had Black Coffee, Diamond Platnumz, Eddy Kenzo, Hatim Ammor, Navio, Sarkodie, Sidikiba Diabate, Tekno, Tiwa Savage, and Zahara. This marks a trifecta of awards for Starboy Wizkid who has had a successful 2016.
