Is The Headies Award Gradually Becoming A Joke?
The headies award which was held yesterday saw the absence of most of the top celebrities in Nigeria. The likes of Wizkid, Burna Boy, Davido, Don jazzy, Tiwa Savage and some others were absent. The fault partly lies with the organizers of the award show, as they picked the same date as wizkid's O2arena show in London, most of the artists boycotted the award and went to wizkid's show. Davido tweeted he was in the delivery room with Chioma his fiancee (congratulations to both of them by the way), but chances that he could have attended the award even if he wasn't busy is slim. Although the likes of Falz and Teni were present, who both won three and four awards respectively, most people still tagged the award night as boring and the worst ever. Rema was also present and won the next rated artist award, but the reactions I have seen on twitter suggest that fireboy is better suited for the award.
Ever since the fight between olamide and Don jazzy over the award for the next rated artist, the headies award is gradually losing its touch in the Nigerian Music Industry.
