    I’m disappointed that “one dance”, a song that spent weeks and weeks on top the charts didn’t get nominated in any singles category. However, the idea that “best album” means that anybody remotely associated with the album receives a grammy by proxy if it wins is desperately clutching at straws. Does it mean that Don jazzy has received a nomination for best rap album for his work on “watch the throne”? Don’t think I heard anyone talk about it. Why trawl the grammy rule books now?

      @Ameboperson, thanks for blowing the whistle. She can change her name all she wants, but if she doesn’t stop coming at me like she always does, I’ll always give her a nasty piece of me.

      I like the real nigerian sha. There is something about her that makes me want to know her. Despite all the nasty comments we’ve exchanged, I still like her.

      It doesn’t apply to Don Jazzy because rap album is a genre category. If it was the general Album of the Year category then yes. Don’t undermine Wizkid’s success. Different elements go into making songs and albums a success and Drake was clearly influenced by his collaborators to make that hit.

    Wizkid co-produced “One Dance”, but did he really feature in it? I don’t think so.

    • I hate hypocrites

      December 8, 2016 at 7:40 am

      You are a big fool! The song clearly says featuring wizkid!! Why are you hating?? Hating on someone else won’t make you horrible life better.

      Actually he did. He’s the one in the background saying something like “back up and wind”

    • Prince Charming

      December 8, 2016 at 7:54 pm

      I’ll have to go and listen to the song again.

    Exactly! You’re a “Charming Prince” remember. Be nice ?

      Yeah, you are absolutely right. I posted some very nasty comments yesterday, and I was mortified when I read them this morning. @A Real Nigerian, I’m awfully sorry about yesterday. Accept my unreserved apology.

    Wizkid is the first Nigerian artist to be nominated for Album of The Year at the Grammys. DEAL WITH IT PEOPLE.

      Wizkid WAS NOT nominated for any Grammy awards. I repeat, WAS NOT nominated. I’ve gone through the nominees list several times and his name WAS NOT there. You can twist and bend facts all you like, but Wizkid will never be referred to as “Grammy nominated” or “Grammy winning” outside the shores of Nigeria, based on his work on Drake’s album (of course he could get nominated or win in another year). “One dance” did a lot for Wizkid, but it DID NOT deliver a video or a Grammy nomination. DEAL WITH IT!
