    This NEA is a big joke….How much did Otedola’s daughter pay NEA awards category so that she can win? Last Year NEA had Best DJ, which Otedola’s daughter was a nominee but the talent list was so stacked that NEA would have looked like a complete joke if they gave it to her. This year, they figured why not create a best female DJ category, HAHAHAHA. Unfortunately, talent can’t be bought. Is Cuppy really the best Female DJ?

    Ugonna, what’s that on your head?? Try and take care of your hairline before attempting this type of hairstyle next time.
    Probably wanted to do high fashion cos you in NYC.
    The hair doesn’t suit you Hun! Not only do you look aged, you look wickeeed! All you need to complete this look are the horns- a la ‘Maleficent’….
    Eeyaaa, Mr M ( Oil & Gas) told you he loved this look on you……. Pele.
    And if you like, go on Instagram to post memes. Na you know! Just my own 5 Dollar im giving ya thru Internet.

    To be honest, NEA will never be taken seriously until they actually award truly talented people for their work. If NEA continues to award friends, ppl that agree to attend or ppl that have “money”, its more like a free giveaway of NEA souvenirs.
    NEA don’t be scared to set a standard, trust that if you set an appropriate standard others will come.
