’s projects have a good possibility of sweeping various nod Grammy categories in 2022

However, Wizkid’s project stands the chance to likely sweep the Global Music Album and Global Music Performance categories on forthcoming Grammy nominations.

But then, there going to be surprises on the nomination night, and with the rave of how it looks like more than the categories will come out for the star boy.

Eligibility for Grammy 2022 closed exactly on August 31, 2021, and Wizkid and RCA/SONY simply closed it strongly with every stone being touched strategically.

On September 6, 2021, it became known that Wizkid’s Made In Lagos, has risen to a new position of No. 28 on the Billboard 200.

This isn’t dissimilar to how Angelique Kidjo chose to release her album outside the year in review in 2020, despite how Mother Nature was ready in 2020.

And as it stands, she is the greatest contender Wizkid has on the global music album category with on mother nature.

In her career, Kidjo has been nominated for nine Grammys and won four times and poses a big threat considering how the academy plays with familiarity concept.

Several high-ranking sources in the Academy – past and present – have revealed to this writer that as much as Wizkid’s successful crossover with ‘Essence’ stand him in great stead to likely sweep the Global Music Album and Global Music Performance categories, it’s important that the music maintains strong African essence, that tickles the fancy of white members, who vote in that category.

With a Justin Bieber remix for ‘Essence,’ and the charting at No. 9 on the Hot 100, the record could get a Record of The Year, as American music capitalists seek to give Afrobeats a breakthrough across the Atlantic and also by hitting the top 10 on the billboard hot 100.

While the record is an Afro-pop record, it could also get nominated in the Urban Contemporary R&B Category.

For Americans, that record will likely sound more R&B than pop. In the same vein ‘Made In Lagos’ could get Album of The Year and Urban Contemporary album nods, outside the Global Music categories.

As of 3rd September 2021, Wizkid’s manager Jada P reveals the submission to Grammy award categories considerations which include Album of the Year, Global Music Album, Engineered Album (Dro), Song of the Year (Essence), Record of the Year, Global Music Performance, Music Video, Melodic Rap Performance (Long Time), Best Rap, Producer of the Year (P2J).

Also, the album became the first African album to be nominated for the album of the year at the Soul Train Award sends a great message on what to expect on the Grammy nomination.
