"Wizkid still remains the Greatest ever out of Africa."
"Wizkid doesn't need to win a Grammy to prove his worth, y'all should stop acting like Grammy is a big deal; That's just an ¤rdinary award which is highly ¤verrated nowadays. No-one uses Grammy to rate the importance of an artiste, people use their body of work & their impacts."
"Essence was supposed to be nominated for “song of the year” but because Wizkid is black they robbed him and gave him another category but they robbed him again and gave it to an unknown song. How did this song win over Essence?"
"If we are being honest."
