That's one of the strengths of  Wikidata over Wikipedia. In wikidata you
just have to make a new item, give it a name and there you go. You can link
it from OSM. You can add a few attributes in Wikidata that can supplement
the data in OSM.

In Wikipedia you have to write the whole article, add pictures, and hope
that administrators won't remove it because it has no significance, or
isn't written well enough.
