Nigerian rapper, CDQ has condemned the Headies for giving the ‘Best Street Hop Artiste’ category to Mayorkun over Naira Marley.
Mayorkun had beaten Naira Marley’s ‘Mafo’ to win the category with ‘Geng’, his 2020 hit single, at the 14th edition of the Headies event held on Sunday.
CDQ accused the organizers of engaging in ‘Industry Politics’ after his colleague, Naira Marley missed out on the Street Hop award.
“Headies una don start dis una obvious industry politics tins again… How the hell una go carry Best Street Hop give someone else at the expense of Naira this year and conscience no judge unah…,” he wrote in a mixture of English and Pidgin.
He said while others in the category are his “family,” he would not shy away from saying the “truth.”
“Everyone on that category na family but ooto oro o ni ka ma so ohun…” he added this time around in Yoruba.
Others nominated for the category which celebrates artists whose songs are inspired by the streets were Reminisce, Paul Okoye, Ivd & Zlatan as well as Olamide.
