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.

  • I don't really know what headies is turning into, the other time when it was very clear that lil kesh suppose to win the next rated they gave it to reekado banks, again this year they gave it Rema which is obviously not suppose to, even zlatan was far better than Rema talk more fireboy. Headies are really joking around these days.

  • I think it will be better if headies really prove to the world how the votes are been used to select winners,because many thinks some winners of categories are not worth it.therefore it becoming a joke,artists are not even taking it seriously anymore because it seems they give awards through favouritism

  • I seriously believe that the headies award is gradually fading off, much interest is not been placed on the accession again as seen on the night of this year's awarding, the artist themselves have made the award look casual and non important . 

    Also the system by which they pick award winners does not look open to me and I think most of the fans feel the same way. 

    I just hope the award is not forsaken and made to look like a non existence thing

  • The 2019 version of the Headies award is nothing to write home about. It was boring and unlively to the extent that it didn't make 10 percent wave on the Nigerian net. People already lost hope in it. The day Olamide was banned from getting the awards, it took away the whole of Olamide's fans from having interested in it.

  • Honestly i have nothing to say about headies but congrats to those who went home with the awards and may the deserving artist keep winning but then again i feel there shouldn't be any sort of misunderstandings between our artists cause everyone is talented in their unique ways.

  • Congratulations to all the award winners, even though headies seems to be growing more partial year in year out, they need to check that trend before it completely ruins the image of the awards

  • It's funny how Nigeria artiste don't promote their brand. The theme of this year's award show didn't go with what was done

    They should create more platform for others. Slowly,it's becoming a joke.

    Some of the awards were well deserving

  • I think the headies is actually becoming a joke cause I could remember 2years ago the anticipation of every artist wanting to collect an award was quite interesting because these past year has come to nothing, so I think it's a joke

  • I might be wrong and i stand to be corrected... Headies is the highest music award given in Nigeria as i know it... But as of recent it is practically becoming an empty event graced by celebrities to save its face...To b frank here the headies have to be able to think of a means to cause a positive change that will put this event back on track or else it will be lost and eventually disregarded

  • The headies award is not as it is before because the main musicians in the industry didn't come for the award night and they rated a new signing called REMA who just began his career as a musicians newly ahead of ZLATAN IBILE who suppose to be rated ahead of him. I think is been a JOKE

  • I think it's already becoming a joke, checking by the way award are being giving out to artist who don't deserve the award and you expect the headies to remain the way it is before.headies is the biggest award when it comes to music in Nigeria but I think corruption and lack of corrections toward work is making it go down imagining rhema winning the next rated award.
