Nigerian ‘starboy’ Wizkid has blasted award organizers who downgrade African artistes at shows in contradiction to international artistes.

Wizkid in an interview with NBS Uganda while on a tour said the unequal treatment by organisers is the reason he does not show up for such awards.

According to him, the only way African awards will be wildly recognised like Grammys is when organisers show equal treatment and love to both local and international artistes.
