Nigerians on Twitter alongside popular social media commentator, Daniel Regha, have jointly expressed their dissatisfaction with the just concluded nominations in the 2022 Headies awards.
The grievances follow fast-rising Nigerian singer, Portable’s double nominations in the ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ and ‘Rookie of the Year’ categories.
On Twitter, netizens claimed the organizers of the show are bias for snubbing Nigerian rapper, Victony and also recognizing Kizz Daniel with just one nomination despite making ‘better songs’.
Daniel Regha wrote: “The Headies Award is a big joke, the organizers are too biased. How can Portable who has no hit song bag multiple nominations whereas Victony gets snubbed; & Kizz Daniel gets only one nomination despite producing better music than Wizkid, Davido & Co. This is beyond insulting.”
While many backed this argument, a handful of comments drummed support for Portable who had earlier celebrated his feat.
Sharing the graphics of his nominations on his Instagram page, the Zazuu Zeh crooner had wrote: “I know I worked for this and I know it’s for me base on believe.
“The Headies don show love . Akoi Grace King. ZAzuu Best rookie and best street pop of the year. ZAzuu ZEH. Street ti Take Over @olamide @poco_lee Kala Wuwa Ika ZEH Nation.”
