See Why Wizkid Will Be The First Nigerian Act To Win A Grammy Award

By our projections on StingerXpress, come February 12,
2017 at the 59th annual Grammy Awards, Nigerian
pop star, Wizkid will become the first Nigerian singer
to win a Grammy Award.

Wizkid's first Grammy will not be for his own song,
but for a song he contributed immensely to.

The song, 'One Dance' by Drake featuring Kyla and
Wizkid in our books and by our calculations has an
86% chance of winning a Grammy award.
To start with, the song was released in April 2016,
which means it clearly falls into the Grammy
eligibility period which has been announced as
October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016.
Now let's talk about the huge feats the song has
recorded so far

According to Billboard, the single racked up 4.67
million streams in one week and pulled about 3,000
combined chart sales.
The song set a new record, becoming the longest-
running No. 1 single in U.K.'s digital era, as at now,
the song has spent 11 straight weeks on the top of
the Billboard chart.
As of June 16, 2016, 'One Dance' has sold 1,280,141
copies in the United States.

Away from this, the year 2016 has also been
remarkable for Wizkid, amongst other
accomplishments, he has sold out stadiums all over
Africa and Europe during his world tour, he's been on
tour with Chris Brown, featured on several
international magazines including Vogue, he's
wrapping up the release of a new album, he signed
three of Ghana's biggest acts to his international
label, won the African Artiste of the Year Award at the
17th Ghana Music Awards.

We may very well congratulate Wizkid in advance for
what is to come.
Save this post, you will reference it in February 2017
when Wizkid brings home the Grammy that has
eluded the legendary Femi Kuti four times!
