This recent development has brought about an uproar on social media as some of its users who may just be fans of the nominated stars are using the opportunity to go for the head of the multiple-award-winning star, Davido.

According to them, Wizkid and Burna boy are the real kings of the music industry contrary to the belief and proclamation of the DMW boss and fans.

They noted the duo has recently been enjoying International recognitions with awards and nominations to go with it but the 30BG boss has just been doing local collabos.

Wizkid and Burna Boy won the ‘Best Music Video’ and ‘Best Global Music Album’ categories respectively at the 2021 Grammy Awards.

Although, it may seem that a vast majority of social media users are oblivious of the fact that Davido was the first African artist to win the BET ‘Best International Act’ in 2018.

He also won the award in 2014 for ‘Best International Act: Africa.’

This has not stopped social media users from the nomination of Wizkid and Burna Boy for Bet Awards to troll Davido.
