Nigerians on Twitter criticize Headies for not awarding Naira Marley ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’

Published

on

The Headies for the year under consideration 2019/2020 was held yesterday (Sunday, 21 February) at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. Not surprising as it is the Headies custom, it generated a lot of views, controversial moments and debates surrounding the whole event.

One of the raving subject of discussion as at right now is that which pertains to the the category—Best Street-Hop— which Mayorkun won for his banging jam – ‘Geng’.

For context, the nominated aristes under the Best Street-Hop Artistes are:

• Naira Marley & Young John – Mafo
• Mayorkun – Geng
• Reminisce feat. Olamide & Naira Marley – Instagram
• Rudeboy – Audio Money
• IVD & Zlatan – Bolanle
• Olamide – Pawon

As stated earlier, Mayorkun turned out to be the chosen one among the group but Nigerians object to the Headies choice of winner, picking Naira Marley as their winner instead, airing their disappointment via Twitter.

One of the many objections came from Naira Marley’s fellow Street-Hop rapper, CDQ, accusing the Headies for playing politics with the award and blasting them for not showing conscience towards who the rightful winner (according to his judgement) should be.

While some feel Naira Marley did not win because of throwing subliminal shot at the event organisers some few years back. Naira Marley in his usual controversial manner tweeted: “Legowork bigger than headies2019 [sic]”.

Naira Marley made that tweet in defence of his close associate and rapper, Zlatan, after Rema won the Headies 2019 ‘Next Rated’ over Zlatan Ibile.

While others have the notion, Mayorkun although an excellent artiste, does no deserve to be victorious in that category. Concluding bonafide Street-Hop artistes in Olamide, Zlatan, Reminisce should have been chosen as winner if at all Naira Marley did not win.
