In what seemed like a coincidence, Nigerian afro-beat singer Davido shared a video of himself seriously slicing onions as Wizkid’s fans wail over his double Grammy loss.
Wizkid, on Sunday, 4th April 2022, failed to secure any Grammy award despite being nominated in two different categories.
Angelique Kidjo beats Wizkid, Burna Boy Femi Kuti and others to grab the award with her album titled Mother Nature.
While some fans of Wizkid took to social media to wail over the development, Davido took to his Instagram story to share a video of himself seriously slicing onions.
Although this might not be a shade from Davido, some netizens have expressed mixed reactions to the video.
