FALL OUT OF WINNERS AT THE HEADIES PLUS OTHER GIST

The Headies is a well known Awards for the creme de la creme of Nigerian Music and belive me it is worth the hype. Criticisms may almost always follow after every edition but you cannot deny it gets mouths talking and in this day and age of Social Media Mouths talking is all you need to stay relevant.

So Octobe 19th All roads led to the Glamorous EKO Convention Centre where it all went down. Actress and TV host, Nancy Isime and rap star, Reminisce were the Hosts and by and large save for a few ish here and there they did ok. On the night, there was glam, there were awkward moments and there were huge upsets that made people shout but the awards have come and gone. One major Talking point was the absence of street artiste Naira Marley from any category despite having a heavy street followership and all. But Ayo Animashaun was quoted as saying that the Morally decadent nature of Marley’s tunes were the reason for his snub. But lets not bore you too much straight to the winners and losers:
