The Recording Academy, organizers of Grammy Awards, is currently under fire from Nigerians.

The Academy has come under heavy criticism on social media for referring to Nigerian afrobeat superstar, Wizkid as an “up-and-coming artist”.

The American award organisers had written Wizkid’s name under a post that read: “Who is an up-and-coming Black artist everyone should have on their radar?” shared via their Instastory.

This didn’t sit well with some Nigerians, especially Wizkid’s fans who considered it demeaning given the singer’s status as one of the most successful music artists in Africa.

Below are some of the reactions:
@heisdio25: “Forget stanship this is actually disrespectful considering Wizkid is a top three afrobeats artiste.”

@esportpridee1:Wiz kid up and coming ke? Is Grammy mad?”

@oxfybi: “Wizkid isn’t up-and-coming, tf?”
