According to Naomi Campbell, Wizkid should have won in the categories he was nominated in but unfortunately, the academy has chosen to be tone-deaf to what is currently trending and making waves on the music market globally.

In an Instagram post, Naomi Campbell chastised the academy for their refusal or perhaps reluctance to recognize the Afrobeat genre as one of the best in the scene and hailed Wizkid as one of the patrons of the music genre.

She charged the academy to rise up and update its archives with what is currently popular in the world and recognize Afrobeat as a mainstream music genre that needs to be included in their subcategories in their award scheme.

Noami averred that Wizkid’s “Essence” and “Made In Lagos” album were in the wrong categories on the award scheme, hence subcategories need to be created for solely Afrobeat music in order for musicians who venture into the genre to stand a chance of being recognized globally for their efforts and talents.

She wrote; To my brother @wizkidayo ,#MadeinLagos was beyond a phenomenal album !! WINNER WITHOUT DOUBT !! You are the KING of the people, that have 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 mis representation and a neglectful categorization of Music ONCE AGAIN .
