Dilly Dong, Dilly Dong, the clock kept clicking and the date keep moving, with each passing seconds, minutes, hours, days and weeks the headies keeps drawing near. Just incase u already forgot the official date is December 22nd 2016, official location is Eko Hotel and Suites Lagos Nigeria, official hosts are Falz and Adesua Etomi. Over the years, the headies have always been a scene for drama.
For example, Burna Boy stormed out of the event in anger some years back when he lost the next rated award to Sean Tizzle and last year headies brought the Olamide and Don Jazzy saga when Rekeedo Banks won the award over Lil Kesh which was seen by many as the favorite for the award.
This year’s saga has already begun though the Headies has not even been held. For example, Tekno took to his Instagram account complaining about the fact that he was placed in the category of next rated and somehow we everyone know he is way past that category. Solid star also complained about his Wait refix not given the recognition the song actually deserved.
There are hidden confusion in the nominee this award though. For example, Tekno was only nominated for the next rated award, I mean come on this artist has been on fire this year 2016. He released, Wash, Where, Pana, Duro, Duro remix featuring Flavor and Phyno and these songs where hits back to back. To nominate him for only next rated award is not too cool because we all know there are other categories that he could have fit in and most likely won.
Another artist is Timaya, this hard working artist was only nominated twice in the category of Best Collabo and Best Pop Single with his hit track M. O. N. E. You ft Flavour. One can easily conclude that the other songs of Timaya is not regarded as been suited enough for the headies.
But the headies also did bring out some artist into the award scene like Mr Eazi, Ycee, Johnny Drille, Falz, Simi and many more. While the competition for this year’s headies award is going to be a tough one, Nigerians and the world are still hoping for a very fair award that is free of drama.
This year’s headies is going to be very interesting, as most of the artist were very hard working and practically all deserves the award in any category they are placed but still the price will be for one artist so the question still remains, Who is it going to be? The headies will tell.
