Wizkid has given FC the biggest bragging right ever.
You can’t even compare him to anyone and not get a “when your fav wins a Grammy you can compare” response.😭

Wizkid isn't our first Nigerian winner. We have Sikiru Adepoju with that honour. He won in 2009.
Wizkid is the first Afrobeats artist to win, and the first Nigerian pop act to get that trophy.
Not first Nigerian ever.

Wizkid is a pace setter. He’s been setting the pace and changing the Afro beat game since he broke into the scene many years ago. He’s the leader, role model, icon, living legend and the greatest of all time 🦅🐐
