2015 headies awards had all the drama to make it go down as the most talked about award night ever in Nigeria. Olamide the self-acclaimed king of the street came on stage to make, perhaps, a seemly bold comment about his then YBNL label mate Lil Kesh losing out in the next rated category to Mavin’s Reekado banks.
One year later and Olamide should be doing same as it came as a shock that Adekunle Gold another of his label mate was not nominated for the next rated category of the Nigerian Grammy.
Adekunle who released his debut single ‘sade’ a cover of one direction’s ‘story of my life’ in 2014 took us all over with his follow up single ‘orente’ released in 2015 which got him a nomination as the most promising act of the city people awards 2015…..
Moving on to 2016 and the boy now has his feet deeply rooted in the music game as he is now a household name silencing critics with the release of his debut album ‘GOLD’ which peaked at #7 on the billboard world music chart about 3 weeks after release, and his name on every major event and an international tour earlier in the year thanks to the success of the album, he deserves much more and the next rated award should have been an easy sweep
While Tekno did not accept being nominated for the headies next rated category 2016, here is an artiste who should be going home with the 2016 price totally overlooked.
2015 Adekunle won the best alternative song at the headies with ‘sade’ and 2016 his brighter and golden year his song ‘pick up’ was nominated for best pop single, best alternative song and song of the year but it is just totally surprising that he was overlooked for next rated award category.
Congratulation to the winner Mr. Eazi but if you or anyone from your camp should say ‘’egbon Olamide or any Adekunle’s fan if you want the award should come and collect it’’ I will be at your door post to collect the award and deliver it to Adekunle Gold… **walks away, badoo style**..
