Recall that Wizkid recently won his first Grammy award due to his collaboration with Beyonce on Brown Skin Girl.
According to the Twitter user, the Nigerian star only ever achieved anything because of his international features which he also termed as ‘gumbody’.
Kunta added that another top singer, Burna Boy, won a Grammy for his album while Davido has two gold certifications for his solo hits.
In his words:
“Burna Boy won a Grammy with his own album, Davido has two gold certifications for solo hits. What has Wizkid achieved on his own please?”
“I may be wrong, but most of Wizkid's achievements come from features and gumbody. He's like the Nigerian Ty Dollar Sign tbh.”
