This might be a huge blow to Wizkid’s fans who were jumping up and down in ecstasy after it emerged that their idol has been nominated for the 2021 Grammy Awards alongside Burna Boy.
When the nominations were released on November 24, 2020, Wizkid‘s song with Beyonce, Brown Skin Girl made the cut for Best Music Video and which by default makes Wizkid a nominee. This made Starboy’s camp very happy and used the moment to shade Davido and his fans.
However, the technical aspect of the nomination has revealed that Wizkid is actually not going to be part ahead of the award ceremony to be held in January 2021. The real clarification is available on the Grammys website clearly states that Wizkid isn’t recognized as one of the artists on the “Brown Skin Girl” video nominated for the “Best Music Video” award.
The Grammys nominated and recognized “Beyoncé Knowles-Carter & Jenn Nkiru, video directors; Lauren Baker, Astrid Edwards, Nathan Scherrer & Erinn Williams, video producers”. Although Wizkid also featured in the music video for ‘Brown Skin Girl’, he’s technically not to be considered.
