In an internet video, famed Nigerian writer Tunde Ednut explores why Grammy Award Winner Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, commonly known as Wizkid, is more well-known in Africa than Davido, Burna Boy, and others.

The revelation was made by Tunde Ednut, who is well-known for his frequent writings on Davido, in a video posted to his 3 million-follower Instagram page.

across spite of his musical prowess, Wizkid is more well-liked across Africa than any other Nigerian singer, according to a video posted by blogger Tunde Ednut. This is attributed to his role in changing the perception of African artists at the BET International Awards.

According to a video released by blogger Tunde Ednut on Instagram’s Power Plug Gram page, prior to 2018, African artists collected their prizes backstage at the BET prizes.

Wizkid, on the other hand, won the BET Award in 2017 but refuses to attend, accusing the award show of promoting phony love for African artists.

Wizkid claims that if the BET Awards are unable to treat African musicians with the same love and respect that they do for foreign singers, then they ought to stop honoring them.

The impact of Wizkid’s statement was felt when Davido, the 2018 BET Prize winner, was invited to the main ceremony and awarded his award.

“I am not Davido If Wizkid wasn’t my guy I would have banged him in the face”- Burna Boy rants

Ever since, African musicians have consistently won prizes in front of a live audience during the main program.

The video reads; “Beyond his musical prowess, one of the significant reasons Wizkid commands respect across Africa is his pivotal role in changing the treatment of African artiste at the BET Awards.

Prior to 2018, African artistes received their awards backstage or in front of an empty audience often hours before the main show.

In 2017, Wizkid won BET Best International Act but chose not to attend the event. He not only refused to show up but also called out BET expressing his discontent in an interview.

“If you are not gonna show us same love, you show your international artiste, if you’re not gonna show us that same love on the main stage then don’t show us no love until we don’t want it.”

The impact was tangible, the following year when Davido secured the award, it was presented to him during the main show in front of a live audience.

since then African artiste have been accorded the same respect as their America counterparts at the BET award.”

Captioning the video, Tunde Ednut wrote; “RESPECT!!!! ✊🏽.”
