Simi, a Nigerian singer, took to Twitter to chastise Nigerians who mocked Wizkid for missing out on two Grammy nominations.
The 64th Grammy Awards were held in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 3rd.
Some Nigerian watchers were waiting for the host to declare Wizkid as the winner of the Best Global Music Album, Best Global Music Performance, or both categories.
Wizkid, unfortunately, did not receive both nominations. He was beaten out by Beninese artist Angélique Kidjo for Best Global Music Album and Arooj Aftab for Best Global Music Performance.
While some Nigerians, particularly Wizkid’s Wizkid FC followers, voiced their sorrow at his loss on Twitter and other social media platforms, others chose to remain silent.
Nigerians, the majority of whom are Davido fans, mocked him.
Simi, who is most likely annoyed with them, showed her unhappiness by scolding them on Twitter.
Take a look at her tweet below:
Simi also said she wanted Wizkid to win in another post when a Twitter user informed her Wizkid didn’t care about the Grammys.
