How It All Started Wizkid had been named a Grammy winner by the award organizers for working with Beyonce on her song Brown Skin Girl, but arguments were made that he wasn't actually a Grammy winner because it wasn't his song. Seun Kuti had also cast a shadow over Wizkid by suggesting that he wouldn't qualify for the Grammy Award because the song belonged to Beyonce.

Wizkid fans troll Seun after the singer received the Grammy plaque presented to the Made In Lagos star that boldly spelled his name on it. The plaque said that, alongside Beyonce and Blue Ivy, he won the award for best music video for Brown Skin Girl. Seun Kuti Refuses To Give In, Throws More Shadow After Wizkid received his badge, Fela's son took to social media to shadow him again.

According to Seun, there are only four musicians in Nigeria whose music has been nominated for Grammy Awards, he, his brother Femi, the juju singer Sunny A De and Burna Boy. Still thinking that Wizkid wouldn't make him a nominee with a Grammy-winning song, Seun said that an album that gets recognition is different from a music video.

Wizkid finally breaks the silence, responds to Seun Kuti The Essence pop singer told Kuti to take his saxophone and play music while urging him not to pay attention to the people recognizing his award.

The starboy also said that everyone really enjoyed Kuti's latest album and was actually still dancing to it. However, Wizkid fans had hilarious reactions to their favorite's reaction. Many of them saw that Wizkid was also casting shadows. Perhaps this is what prompted Seun to share. Wizkid's private message to him showing that there is no grudge between him and the Grammy winner.
