Seun Kuti fires shots at Wizkid: Says Stop Parading Yourself As Grammy Nominee

10 Jun 2021

Nigerian Afrobeat act and activist, Seun Kuti, son of legendary Fela Kuti, has thrown shots at Nigerian artist Wizkid.

 

Seun Kuti has slammed Ayo Balogun also known as Wizkid by telling him to desist from parading himself as a Grammy nominee. He said Wizkid does not deserve to be called a Grammy nominee.

 

In an Instagram video shared, Seun Kuti stated that the only Nigerians who can be called Grammy nominees are his father Fela Kuti, Burna Boy, and King Sunny Ade.

It would be recalled that Wizkid won a Grammy award for featuring in Beyonce’s song “Brown Skin Girl”.

Burna Boy also won an award at the event for his album Twice as Tall.

 

He also insisted that since Wizkid was featured in a song that won a Grammy award, he had no right to say he had won a Grammy for Nigeria, as the song belonged to American singer, Beyonce.

 

“There are only four artists in Nigeria (to have ever been) nominated for the Grammy, and I am one of them,” Kuti added, directly under the video post.

 

Some of Wizkid fans have reacted to Seun Kuti’s video….
