Wizkid, Nigerian singer, was among winners at the 2021 NAACP Image Awards for his role in ‘Brown Skin Girl’, a 2019 song by Beyonce, American musician.

The song, which is a track off Beyonce’s ‘The Lion King: The Gift,’ won the ‘Outstanding Music Video/Visual Album’ category of the award on Thursday.

Beyonce had last year released the visuals for the project which also featured Blue Ivy Carter, her first daughter with Jay-Z, and Saint JHN.

The development further stretches what has been an impressive run for the song since it was released.

It comes a few days after the project fetched the ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner his first-ever Grammy award.
