Social media has erupted in lamentations as Nigerian global superstar, Wizkid failed to pick up a Grammy award despite being nominated in two categories.
Wizkid was nominated in the Best Global Music Performance and Best Global Music Album categories, but lost out on Sunday night to Arooj Ajtab and Nigerian award nemesis, Angelique Kidjo in both categories respectively.
Wizkid FC fans who had been anticipating a successful night due to the global success of his Made In Lagos album, and smash-hit Essence were left stunned as Machala ended the night empty-handed.

In light of the Grammy snub, FC fans took to social media, describing it as a robbery, while some fans dismissed the snub, saying that Wizkid not winning on the night doesn’t diminish the fact that they were solid body of works.
One fan in particular attributed the Grammy loss to an encounter with Davido…(these fans)
Here are some reactions gathered by The Quest Times
@DAMIADENUGA Wizkid missing out on both Grammy categories, he didn’t make Made In Lagos to target Grammys, the album got global attention organically. He can do it again, African music will be back next year at the #Grammys
@ChumaNnoli Wizkid has been consistently setting records, and not winning at the #GRAMMYs tonight does not change his Essence to the music world. From dropping a Made in Lagos album that’s huge & hitting higher heights on the Billboard Chart, to shutting down shows in the US, UK, UAE, etc.
@DanielRegha Wizkid lost an ¤rdinary Grammy, Nigerians are pissed but same y’all couldn’t celebrate Davido’s feature in the 2022 FIFA WC soundtrack cos of hate; Jokers. That WC feature is bigger than winning Grammys but y’all don’t know cos chasing validation has cloud ur senses. No offense.
@daqspyda I honestly hope that dis Burna, Wizkid and Davido issue is taken as cruise and mere talk, that some of you don’t actually hate d other one because of stanship it would be wrong and frankly, the only thing u should be serious about is enriching ur pockets and staying happy #GRAMMYs
@Swagger_jeffrey Don’t forget the weeknd drop the best album last year and the #GRAMMYs’s robbed him of that award… Same sh**t they did to Wizkid today…I’m not surprised. The Grammy’s is full of politics…so Fc don’t relent. Fall back to base immediately. Nothing fit shake us aje
@_Saver_boy_ WizKid loosing two Grammys is not ordinary.. I just remembered Davido hugged him months ago.
