Fans have taken to Twitter to hail the Essence crooner on his groundbreaking feat.
A tweep, @xandra_Jay tweeted, “I said it before and I’m// keep saying that Wizkid is the greatest African Artiste of all time. See the #HeadiesNominees again.”
Another tweep, @ada_meewah, said, “Wizkid is tired of awards, he is getting nominated every three market days. #HeadiesNominees #Headies2022”
Blasting Wizkid’s critics, @philosophierol4 said, “Calling Wizkid local champion because he was nominated nine times in the Headies award is the most forced savage. Wizkid has more international awards recognition than all your favourites combined.”
“So Headies wants to hand over 9 awards to Wizkid 🐐 in one night? GOAT (Greatest of all times) level,” @sir_momoraji tweeted.
Another star who gathered multiple nominations was Ayra Starr.
