Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo has locked her comments section on Instagram following online bullying after winning a Grammys award.
The music star won the Best Global Music Album for her critically acclaimed album, Mother Nature.
After she shared a photo of herself with her award, several disgruntled people who weren’t happy about their favourite winning the awards took to her comments section, where they made derogatory comments.
On social media, is reported that most of the degrading comments came from fans of Nigerian music star, Wizkid.
The album also features Burna Boy, Yemi Alade, Mr Eazi and more on different songs.
During her acceptance speech, she gave a shout-out to those three artists. She said, “When I won [my last] Grammy, I said that the young musicians from Africa are gonna take the world by storm, so I want to thank them: Yemi Alade, Burna Boy, Sting, Mr. Eazi…”
