Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must have come across a report on several blogs suggesting that Nigerian singer Wizkid was nominated for the 2017 Grammys. Well, he wasn’t.
Drake’s “Views” album made it to the “Album of The Year” category and as we know, it features a performance from Wizkid in one of the songs, “One Dance.”
Well, One Dance didn’t get nominated for any award but Views did, so basically, Wizkid’s name didn’t make any appearance in the full Grammy Awards nominations list (see here).
However,that is not to say that all hope is lost for Africans clinching something at the 59th Grammy event. Faridah Demola Seriki (aka Kah-Lo), daughter of a former Minister of Defence, Demola Seriki, got nominated for “Best Dance Recording” category for a song titled “Rinse & Repeat” with Riton.
