Jada Pollock, Wizkid’s manager, has reacted to the singer’s loss at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
On Sunday, Wizkid lost the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category to Angelique Kidjo, the Beninese singer.
The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner was also unable to claim the ‘Best Global Music Performance’ category, which was won by Arooj Aftab, the Pakistani vocalist.
In a now-deleted tweet, Jada shared a photo of the achievements of both ‘Made In Lagos’ and ‘Essence’ since the album and song were released.
She also accused the Recording Academy committee of judging based on their personal opinions rather than facts.
“When it’s all said and done, facts speak louder than a committee full of opinions, I’ll just leave it here.. @RecordingAcad,” she’s wrote.
Jada’s opinion comes barely a few hours after Naomi Campbell, the British actress cum model, called out the Recording Academy over Wizkid’s loss at the Grammys.
Campbell had claimed the album and hit song were placed in the wrong categories.
According to her, ‘Essence’ should have been nominated in the ‘Song of the Year’ category.
She also accused the Grammys of being “tone-deaf”, claiming they always find new ways to misrepresent and neglect the categorization of Afrobeats.
