Wizkid makes the list for His First-ever Grammy Awards Nomination

The Nigerian singer was a contributor on ‘Views’, an album by Drake Aubrey Graham, which was nominated in the album of the year category.

The nominations which were announced on Tuesday had a number of shocking omissions including One Dance, a song by Drake featuring Wizkid and British singer, Kyla.

The omission will definitely raise many eyebrows as One Dance was the number one song on the Billboard charts for up to ten weeks.

Wizkid, who has had a stellar year, has toured alongside artistes like Chris Brown and featured on tracks with acts like Tinie Tempah,DJ Maphorisa,R-kelly and host of others.

In spite of the snub, One Dance has already won several awards in 2016, one of which was the Teen Choice Award for Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song.

Beyonce, Drake, Adele, Chance The Rapper, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Rihanna were the most nominated artistes by Recording Academy.

‘Blonde’, the latest album by Frank Ocean, an R&B singer and songwriter, was not nominated because he failed to submit his material for consideration.

“I’d rather this be my Colin Kaepernick moment for the Grammys than sit there in the audience,” Ocean told the New York Times last month.
