After having a successful year, Wizkid is about to crown it up with a Grammy Award for his contribution in Drake’s platinum album “Views“. The singer was instrumental in the album by co-producing the song “One Dance” and also featuring on it.
The category for Album of the Year at the Grammy is the most coveted award and so many artistes battle just to get nominated. The award for Album of the Year was introduced in 1959 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.
The award was initially presented to the artist alone but now it is given to every everyone that contributed in the album like the main artist, the featured artist(s), the producer, the engineer and/or mixer and the mastering engineer.
This means Wizkid might end up going home with two awards at the Grammys for featured artist and song production. This is really a good one for the talented Nigerian artist who has come a long way in promoting his music to world.
This year alone Wizkid has carted away some major awards like Worldwide Act at MTV EMAs, Best African Act at the The 2016 Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards ceremony, Best African Artist at AFRIMA and MTV MAMAs. Bigups to the starboy for making us proud.
