The music star took to his Instagram stories on Wednesday to display the prize which contained details of the award.

In March, Wizkid clinched the much-coveted award for his role in ‘Brown Skin Girl’, a 2019 song by Beyonce, American musician.

The hit project, which also featured Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce’s first daughter, won the the ‘Best Music Video’ category during the award ceremony.

The development had come at about the same time when Burna Boy also won the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category for ‘Twice As Tall‘, his 2020 project.

Born Ayodeji Balogun, Wizkid started recording music at the age of 11 and released a collaborative album with the Glorious Five, a group he and a couple of his church friends formed.

He signed a deal with Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) in 2009 and rose to prominence after ‘Holla at Your Boy’, the lead single.

In 2016, he got global recognition for ‘One Dance’, his collaboration with Drake, a Canadian rapper.

He has since established himself as a household name in the global music industry with strings of awards and recognition.

The ‘Ojuelegba’ had in May hinted at producing his fifth album following the success of ‘Made in Lagos‘, his 2020 project.
