Nigerian singer-songwriter, Sodiq Abubakar Yusuf, popularly known as CDQ has slammed the organisers of the Headies Award.
The singer accused the organiser of “obvious industry politics” after DMW artist, Mayorkun won the Best Street Hop artiste award at the 14th edition of the Headies Awards on Sunday night.
A voting category for the artiste whose songs are inspired by the streets. Such song should captain lingua, which may also be originated by the artiste and popular on the street. – Headies’ description of the category said.
Mayorkun’s song Geng won him the Best Street Hop Artiste award ahead of Naira Marley’s Mafo, Reminisce’s Instagram, Rudeboy’s Audio Money, IVD & Zlatan’s Bolanle andOlamide’s Pawon.
Reacting to the award via his verified Twitter handle on Sunday night, CDQ expressed displeasure over the category, suggesting that no one other than Naira Marley deserved the award.
“Headies una don start dis una obvious industry politics tins again… How d hell una go carry Best Street Hop give someone else at the expense of Naira dis yr and conscience no judge una hmmm…,” he tweeted.
