Wizkid received nominations for the ‘Best Global Music Performance’ and ‘Best Global Music Album’ categories at the Sunday gala, which he lost to Mohabbat and Angelique Kidjo respectively.
Despite the award being won through a voting process, some disgruntled fans of the Star boy as he is fondly called took to the Instagram page of the Beninese singer to criticize her win.
Angelique Kidjo was later forced to disable comments on her Instagram platform because of the massive trolls she has been receiving.
