Superstar singer Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has explained why he congratulated winner of the 2022 Grammy Award Angelique Kidjo. He said Kidjo and other winners are shining lights of Africa.
Wizkid finally broke his silence after losing at the 2022 Grammy Awards. While his album, ‘Made In Lagos’, lost in the category of Best Global music album to Angelique Kidjo’s ‘Mother Nature’, his song ‘Essence’, also failed to win the Best Global music performance.
Nigerians have been reacting to the failure of the recording academy to recognise any of the two nominations, especially Essence.
However, Wizkid, who had been silent over the event, finally reacted in a post via his Instagram page, congratulating Angelique Kidjo on her win.
He said: “Love to my brother, a true King @realblackcoffee and Queen @angeliquekidio for the wins and for consistently being the shining lights to the continent.
“African music rising.”
