According to Jollof, Burna Boy and Wiz haven’t been given the accolades they deserve and he wanted to know why.
The comedian continued that people were used to hearing bad news about Nigeria for donkey years but Wizkid and Burna used their voice and talent to bring pride to the country.
Jollof continued that airports should be named after the music stars so that people will identify with the country in a positive way. He also said that under normal circumstances, a public holiday should have also been declared to celebrate Wizkid and Burna because a Grammy is not the Headies award and winning it is no small achievement.
