Wizkid and Tems score another nomination for Essence

Must Read

The 2022 BBMAs will take place at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on 15 May to celebrate outstanding music accomplishments based on album and digital sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement, among other metrics.

Wizkid and Tems’ nomination follows their loss at the recently held Grammy Awards where they were nominated in the Best Global Music Performance category for the hit ‘Essence’. They now face competition from Doja Cat, Silk Sonic, Giveon and Justin Bieber, who himself is nominated alongside Wizkid and Tems for his involvement in a remix of the track.

‘Essence’ is off Wizkid’s Made in Lagos album, which became the longest charting album on the Billboard World Albums chart. The Afrobeats offering surpassed Cape Verdean singer Cesaria Evora’s eponymous album, which held the 27-year record with 66 weeks on the chart.

Wizkid received seven nominations at the 2016 BBMAs for his track ‘One Dance’ featuring Drake, winning the Top R&B Song, Top R&B Collaboration and Top Streaming Song (Audio) awards that year.

Meanwhile, The Weeknd leads this year’s nominees with 17 nods.
