    So Dbanj’s Feeling the Nigga is ignored despite its success. It is not surprising though. Since Don Jazzy wilfully disbanded Mohits , the music industry in Nigeria has not forgiven Dbanj. Hope one day Headies would free itself of this malice.

    @Squad. You are not resting ur comments on fact but ur personal prejudice. According to the respected music blog, 360nobs The Best of January 2015. the most downloaded songs of the month ,Dbanj’s Feeling the Nigga is the second most downloaded song. Please check it, Mr Squad !

    Producer of the Year – The Wicked Producer….period!

    Yeah… I quite agreed on that. ” Feeling the Nigga” – the slang was made popular by Dbanj. Olamide used it in BOBO , Orezi in REGGAE BLUES and so on and that translate to the song being successful.
    Yaasss…. I’m so happy for the success of Timi Dakolo’s Wish Me Well.
    Again, DJ Coublon should have made the list in fact be given his own personal award.

    It has to be: Young John the Wicked Producer, he’s too fab.

    I’m here for Olamide, Timi Dakolo, Simi, Di’ja and Kiss Daniel.

    I can include Yemi Alade – KISSING. If that song wins an award, then cool.
