Has Wizkid won Grammy Award? List of Wizkid awards won. Nigerian Singer.


It is the aspiration of every musician on Earth and Saturn to at least bag one Grammy Award.

This is because the Grammy Award is the biggest ever in the music and entertainment scene. Hence getting one will be a dream come true.

But despite how difficult and farfetched the Grammy may seem, winners emerge every single year. Yea, tons and tons of people from different parts of the world including Africa win in various categories.

Has a Nigerian ever won this prestigious award? Or better still, let’s narrow the question down a bit… Has Wizkid won a Grammy Award before? When?

Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun ( as of the year this article was drafted ) is the biggest artiste in Nigeria. He’s even considered Africa’s best by millions out there.

Fondly & most popularly called Wizkid, this singer is responsible for countless beautiful Nigerian tunes. He broke into the spotlight following the release of Hola At Your Boy and went on to build a solid niche for himself.

Wizkid has amassed several local and international awards, he even has his name permanently crested in the World Guiness Book Of Records for his wondrous contribution to the music realm.

But has Wizkid won a single Grammy award before?

The answer to this question is a Big Fat NO, and that’s for obvious reasons.

  • First, most of his songs do not pass direct messages (that is, of there so pass at all.)
  • He lacks that creativity to play on words (Pun)
  • Without filter and auto-tune his voice is not exactly pleasant to the ears.

Irrespective of these Wizkid is a superstar and we love him.

In a long run we envisage him clutching not one or two, but innumerable Grammy awards all to his name and glory.

So you have your answer.
