Ayodeji Balogun, known by Wizkid popularly on March 15th became the recipient of the Best Music Video award at the 2021 Grammys for his pivotal role in Black Skin Girl by Beyoncé. Ever since, Wizkid has failed to show off the plaque leading to speculations that he never received an individual plaque from the Recording Academy.
Enters June 23 when a close associate of Wizkid, Tufab posted the plaque on his IG page and eventually the photo crossed boarders, gaining entrance into Twitter, to which some people praised him for doing such, i.e being bold enough to post the plaque with or without Wizkid’s approval while others are of the latter notion and accusing Tufab of going against Wizkid’s, ultimately forcing the singer to just post it by himself too on his IG Story.
Here are some of the reactions by Twitter NG to Tufab’s posting of Wizkid’s Grammys plaque:

To further the claims that Tufab posted the picture of the plaque without Machala’s orders, Wizkid’s manager and baby mama, Jada Pollock aka Jade P insinuated that Tufab lacked respect and integrity in dealing with this present issue:
Some people in life honestly have no respect & integrity. Why would you be asked to deliver something and then take it upon yourself to open the box & post it. Where is the respect! But have your moment, likes and comments. Just know this wasn’t COOL! @Tufab

However Tufab has come forward to calm the nerves of raging FCs online, assuring them it is all cool:
