Wizkid has scored a Soul Train Awards nomination in the best dance performance category with Come Closer featuring Drake and not ‘One Dance’. Yes, you heard right! Wizkid faces stiff competition but we have to agree that the nomination in itself is a win for Afrobeats.
Wizkid’s Come closer would have to beat songs like Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic”, buddy Chris Brown feat. Usher & Gucci Mane’s “Party”, DJ Khaled feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller’s “Wild Thoughts” and Solange feat. Sampha’s “Don’t Touch My Hair”.
Solange is the most nominated artist for this year’s edition as the singer snagged seven nominations, including best R&B/soul female artist and video and song of the year for her single “Cranes in the Sky.”
Soul Train Awards ceremony will air on BET on Nov. 26.
This is wishing Daddy Yo all the best luck!
