Just recently, Legit.ng reported that popular comedian, Mr Jollof, shared his opinion, saying Burna Boy and Wizkid needed to be celebrated more by the country for their win.
Jollof continued that airports should be named after the music stars so that people will identify with the country in a positive way.
He also said that under normal circumstances, a public holiday should have also been declared to celebrate Wizkid and Burna because a Grammy is not the Headies award and winning it is no small achievement.
