The Headies Awards corrects Errors in Nominations List



Mayorkun, Maleek Berry, Dice Ailes nominated for Next Rated at the 12th Headies | Full List of Nominees

The Headies Awards organisers have released a statement saying nominations given in error have been corrected.

3 artists – Nonso AmadiMasterkraft and Tekno had been nominated in error, the statement said, and corrections have been made.

2 of the 3 nominations given to singer Nonso Amadi have been revoked.

The singer had been nominated in 3 categories, namely: Best Alternative Act, Best R&B Single, and Best Vocal Performance (Male).

His song “Tonight” for which he was nominated under the Best R&B Single and Best Vocal Performance (Male) categories has been removed from consideration as the song was released before the year in review.

The statement released by The Headies read:

The Headies secretariat officially write to correct the following nominations which were given in error and are corrected as follows

‘Virtuous Woman’ by Flavour was produced by Cobhams not Masterkraft and Selebobo produced ‘Rara’, not Tekno.

‘Tonight’ by Nonso Amadi was removed from ‘Best RnB Single’ and ‘Best Vocal Performance (Male)’ categories because it was released before the period under review.

Masterkraft’s nomination for Best Producer is ‘Yawa’ and ‘Augment’, while Cobhams is nominated for ‘Butterflies’ and ‘Virtuous Woman’.

We apologise for the misinformation.

    what’s this? jus is just too unprofessional… you don’t do things that way… if you have a problem with the artist, you shouldn’t make it obvious.. didnt you check before the initial nomination? A big platform as big as this? this is so wrong

    Headies + Errors + Show starting late + Artiste Wahala = Same whatsapp group
    I think its time for a group of people to create a new reputable Nigerian music award show abeg, we can’t just be disgracing our popular music like this.
    I’m still hoping Headies will ‘shock’ us this year.
