American supermodel Naomi Campbell has shown support for musician, Wizkid while condemning organisers of the Grammy Awards.
Recall that Wizkid lost after failing to win any award at the just concluded 2022 Grammy awards.
The 51-year-old model in an Instagram page condemned the Recording Academy for misrepresentation and a neglectful categorization of Wizkid’s album, ‘Made In Lagos,’ and the song, ‘Essence’ featuring Tems.
Naomi said Wizkid’s ‘Made In Lagos’ album, which lost out at the 2022 Grammys, was beyond phenomenal.
Read her statement below;
“To my brother @wizkidayo, #MadeinLagos was beyond a phenomenal album !! WINNER WITHOUT DOUBT!! You are the KING of the people , that has bought AFROBEATS mainstream, that means more than any academy of any sort .. ❤️🇳🇬🦅”
“@recordingacademy Once again you choose to be tone deaf to what is going in the universe.”
“Changing World to Global is not Enough.. get up to speed on the state of all popular music and include Afrobeats Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year and all the subcategories that this genre so deserves – just as an other respected and recognized musical genre.”
“#MadeinLagos Album and song Essence, Was clearly in the wrong category how can you ignore the song Essence, The song by Wizkid, and Tems that was covered and remixed by Justin Bieber, you seem to isolate under global, when it should have been in song of the year category.”
“This is a misrepresentation and a neglectful categorization of Music ONCE AGAIN. Give Afrobeats the representation it deserves . You are. Ignoring 1.3 billion people It will only make us Rise !! Afrobeats in our hearts Africabeats to the world ! 🇳🇬❤️🇳🇬🦅”
