Wizkid becomes the 2nd Nigerian artist to receive his Grammy Plaques after several jabs from haters
Let me take you back to few weeks ago when Seun Kuti threw a “Grammy” sub at a certain artist for “attaching” to Grammy awards because of a feature claiming only four artists have won.

Fast forward to today months after Brown skin girl by Beyonce featuring Wizkid & Blue Ivy was announced as a Grammy winner for best music video of Black skin girl, Wizkid got his Grammy plaque making him the 2nd Nigerian artist to win a Grammy.
The moment Brown skin girl was announced winner on March 14, 2021 at the 63rd Grammy Award, there were arguments, jabs and doubts tied to Wizkid getting a plaque or not, if featured artistes will be entitled to receiving one and if Biz Wiz deserved to be happy about it since it was just a feature unlike that of Burnaboy who got a Grammy for his album African Giant.

Burnaboy isn’t greater than 2baba because he won Grammy first
Burnaboy isn’t greater than 9ice because he won Grammy first
Burna isn’t greater than Davido because he won Grammy first
Burnaboy isn’t greater than Wizkid because he won it Solo #fact

Ok but what exactly is wizkid's Grammy for?
He didn't direct the video or sponsor it. He just showed up to the set and bumped his head like all the other extras on set.
Where's lupita, Naomi, Kelly, adut, etc Grammy's then?

I know it's an exciting thing for Nigerian to win Grammy awards. But the only recognised Nigerian Winner tonight is Burna Boy!
Why are you people forcing Beyonce's Award on us? I'm a Messi Fan I don't Celebrate Tap ins please.
So Blue Ivy get Grammy too, Wizkid FC rest abeg 😂

While some threw jabs at the fact that he was a featured artist on the song, many others congratulated this win for Nigeria and for Africa.
I congratulate @BurnaBoy and @WizKidAyo for their well deserved @Grammy wins. The trio of @NOIweala, Burna Boy and Wizkid have done more for Nigeria’s image than many realise, by projecting Nigeria’s positives and adding value to every Nigerian#FreeLeahSharibu #RenosNuggets

Well, Wizkid’s post today on Instagram did put an end to the arguments, questions, subs and told hater “Fem” with his own Grammy plaque.

With the caption on the Grammy, I hope the haters now see Wizkid wasn’t featured in Brown skin girl, he co-owned that shii with Beyoncé. Blue Ivy was the one featured pic.twitter.com/IV90Ei1PTJ

Beyonce dropped over 9 songs in her Lion King: The Gift album, but it's Brown Skin Girl that's had the most impact.
It's not a coincidence that that's the song Starboy is on.
Wizkid shines & brightens up songs he's involved in, & now there's a Grammy to show too.🔥#GRAMMYs

The fact that there's no "featuring Wizkid" on that grammy plaque is causing them depressi*n already 😂
