What Happens If Wizkid Win The Grammys Next Year?

The name Wizkid sure does ring out these days, as the guy has gone from pop sensation to global music figure.

A couple of days ago, his apparent magnum opus (most important body of work), “Made in Lagos” turned one and it was a big one really. The numbers are over a billion streams, thousands of sales in the US and across the board, more weeks on the Billboards than any other. Honestly, what we have here is a project that is on track to becoming the single biggest and hottest album from all of Africa in the past few years.

Now, word on the street is that it’s being considered for some Grammys. Well, at least that’s what the millionaires that manage Wizkid over at RCA/Sony Music say anyway.

And yes, it’s a couple of hot categories too, I’m hearing. The thing is Wizkid is hot right now, and there’s no telling where his name might land when the nominations come-I think it will go far-but here I’ll just briefly theorize on what it’d be like if he does win in some of these categories.

If He Wins Global Album of the Year?

Well, Burna Boy already won this one at the 2021 Grammys. Some people sure wouldn’t think winning this is so much of a flex. Maybe it isn’t anyway. But it’s still no beans.

The one catch is that Wizkid might go head to head with Angelique Kidjo, a 4-time winner who beat Burna Boy in 2019. If Wizkid wins over her, well that’s certainly something. But not good enough, honestly.

If He Wins Song of the Year with “Essence”?

Okay, now we’re really talking big man doings now. A Song of the Year nomination at the Grammys alone is a big enough recognition as anything most African artists before Wizkid has got.

If he wins that, “Essence” goes into the Afrobeats Hall of Fame, alongside songs like “African Queen.” Really, it would mean he created the single best song out of Africa ever. Omo, is all I can say.

If He Wins Album of the Year?

Now, this one is very very unlikely. Even Drake wouldn’t bank on winning this, but if by some chance Wizkid does get nominated and he wins the most important award at the Grammys, then it means it is true what they say, Wizkid is totally bigger than Fela.
