Wizkid Is An Upcoming Artiste – Grammy Awards


The Recording Academy, organisers of the Grammy Awards, has come under intense criticism on social media for describing Wizkid as an “up-and-coming artiste.

On Friday evening, the organisers of the prestigious awards took to its Instastories to list out a plethora of black singers who “everyone should have on their radar.”

Wizkid and Rema were the Nigerian music heavyweights who made the series of posts.

“Who is an up-and-coming Black artist everyone should have on their radar?” the caption of the posts read.
