Wizkid Nominated For 2019 Soul Train Awards

Nigeria’s very own Wizkid has been nominated for the 2019 Soul Train Awards.

This nomination is following the history making success of his recent Starboy Fest which he sold out the 20,000 capacity O2 Arena in London for a second time in a row.

The singer made it to the list for his collaborative hit song with American music star, Beyoncé with “Brown Skin Girl.” Wizkid has been nominated in two categories: Best collaboration and the Songwriters award.
