Wizkid sets new record as first Nigerian artiste to win an NAACP Image Award.
Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, award-winning singer, known professionally as Wizkid has become the first Nigerian singer to win an NAACP image award.
The NAACP Image Award is an award to honor outstanding performances in film, television, music, and literature, and “Brown Skin Girl” won in the “Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration” category at the 2020 edition.
Wizkid was nominated alongside other prominent American artistes like Drake, Chris Brown, Alicia Keys, J Cole, and Miguel and his win makes him the first Nigerian artiste to win the prestigious award.
However, just last week, the Nigerian star took to his social media pages to reveal that his long-awaited album, ‘Made In Lagos’ is finally done.
He wrote via his Twitter handle: “Finally done! So you know what that means!” This came after he wrote that, “I’ve been working on my album and my spirit.” A big shoutout to Wizkid for representing the spirit of Naija
