Late yesterday, the most anticipated or biggest award show in Nigeria as people may say, released the complete list of their nominees, and believe me it was a cool nomination list with the Starboy boss bagging 3 nominations, Adekunle Gold bagging 5 nominations, and Yagi album placed in two nominations.
Looking at the Headies Award, the most controversial nomination award ever since the Headies Award has started is the Next Rated non voting category. This same category caused a beef between two great bosses and legends in the Music industry, talking of Olamide of Ybnl and Don Jazzy of Mavins where Olamide’s boy Lil Kesh who is now floating his own record label Y.A.G.I lost to Mavin artiste Reekado Banks last year on this same nomination.
Now back to DMW artiste Mayorkun who was nominated for the Next Rated Award amidst Tekno, Ycee, Falz, Aramide and Mr. Eazi has rocked this year with his hot singles like eleko which had a sum up of 3,744,817 views on youtube, Yawa and Love you tire featuring one of his competitors on the Next Rated Headies Award Mr Eazi.
Checking and rating Mayorkun, we think mayorkun shouldn’t be anyway, anyhow nominated for the next rated award. He came into limelight early this year with his eleko single.
He should be nominated for Rookie of the year not Next Rated Artiste, he was nominated with Ycee, Falz, Tekno, Mr Eazi, Aramide, sure this five listed artiste which was nominated alongside Mayorkun are not new to the industry. Ycee released Jagaban 2015 not 2016 not to talk of Ycee and Tekno who was known by the world with his single with Mayorkuns boss Davido which was recorded and released early 2013, April 2013 actually.
In a nutshell, Mayorkun is a great artiste we have been waiting for but this life na level by level, LOL. Mayorkun should be nominated for Rookie Of The Year and next year hopefully clinch Next Rated Artiste if he continues to give us banging tunes, good music like it as always been or even better than that
