Wizkid wins Grammy Award With Beyonce’s Collaboration

Nigerian superstar, Ayo Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, has won his first-ever Grammy Award for his role in ‘Brown Skin Girl’ off the 2019 album, ‘The Lion King’, at the 63rd Grammy Award.

He won the award alongside Beyonce, who owns the song and featured artists – Wizkid, Blue Ivy, and SAINt JHN

It also marks the first Grammy Award for Beyoncé’s daughter.

The award will go to Jenn Nkiru who directed the video while artists, producers and video director will get a statuette for this category.

The official Twitter account of Grammy tweeted, “Congrats Best Music Video winner – ‘BROWN SKIN GIRL’ @Beyonce #BlueIvy @wizkidayo”.

Beyoncé’s visual for “Brown Skin Girl” took home the award over videos by Future and Drake (“Life Is Good”), Harry Styles, (“Adore You”), Anderson Paak (“Lockdown”), and Woodkid (“Goliath”).

Wizkid has continued to excel on the global stage. His latest album, Made in Lagos, enjoyed rave reviews across the world, even as his fan base stretched to hitherto ‘unconquered’ territories.

Three of Wizkid’s songs, Borrowed Love, Soco and Can’t Believe were certified in Canada. Other songs, ‘Love’ and ‘Energy’ also earned certification in the United Kingdom; while Come Closer got certified Gold in the United States of America; and ‘Bella’ got certification in France.
