MUST READ: Wizkid Will Be The First Nigerian Act To Win A Grammy Award, See Why


Wizkid will become the first Nigerian singer
to win a Grammy Award.
Yea you read that right!
Wizkid’s first Grammy will not be for his
own song, but for a song he contributed
immensely to.
The song, ‘ One Dance ’ by Drake featuring
Kyla and Wizkid in our books and by our
calculations has an 86% chance of winning
a Grammy award.
To start with, the song was released in
April 2016, which means it clearly falls into
the Grammy eligibility period which has
been announced as October 1, 2015 to
September 30, 2016.
Now let’s talk about the huge feats the song
has recorded so far
According to Billboard, the single racked
up 4.67 million streams in one week and
pulled about 3,000 combined chart sales.
The song set a new record, becoming the
longest-running No. 1 single in U.K.’s
digital era, as at now, the song has spent
11 straight weeks on the top of the
Billboard chart.
As of June 16, 2016, ‘One Dance’ has sold
1,280,141 copies in the United States.
Away from this, the year 2016 has also
been remarkable for Wizkid, amongst
other accomplishments, he has sold out
stadiums all over Africa and Europe during
his world tour, he’s been on tour with
Chris Brown , featured on several
international magazines including Vogue , he’s
wrapping up the release of a new album,
he signed three of Ghana’s biggest acts to his
international label, won the African Artiste
of the Year Award at the 17th Ghana Music
We may very well congratulate Wizkid in
advance for what is to come.
Save this post, you will reference it in
February 2017 when Wizkid brings home
the Grammy that has eluded the legendary
Femi Kuti four times!
