Will This Headies Be Controversy Free?




Controversy has been the major put-off of the Ayo Animashaun organised musical award, The Headies.  Regarded as one of the biggest music awards in Nigeria, inconsistency as well as controversies have stagnated the award.

More than once the date of the award has been shifted with sponsorship being the problem. Some of the recent controversies which have trailed the award include how Tekno snubbed its organisers for nominating him in the ‘Next Rated’ category, he was subsequently disqualified. However, who would blame Tekno for his action, the lad had consistently churned out hit after hit, as everything he has touched has simply being a hit.

The way Olamide dumped his microphone on the stage of the award in 2015, and almost had a fisticuff with Don Jazzy when Reekado Banks won the ‘Next Rated’ ahead of his supposedly more successful act Lil Kesh is still legendary, even if Olamide later apologized. These and the fact that some people have even argued that you have to pay half the value of the SUV you get as the ‘Next Rated’ winner before you can win it has made the Headies award even more controversial.


With the nominees of the 2016/2017 edition of the award recently released, there have been posers as to how the award will go down this time.

The 2016/2017 edition of the award has in its ‘Next Rated’ category names such as Zoro, Mayorkun, Maleek Berry, Dice Ailes and Johnny Drille.

Family Begins Fundraising To Fly Back Remains Of Majek Fashek




A plea for funds to fly back the remains of late Majekodunmi Fasheke popular as Majek Fashek has begun.

Recall that the reggae legend died of cancer on Monday, June 1, in New York City, United States of America.


The plea for funds was kick-started by E.J. Agbonayinma, a former member of the House of Representatives, representing Egor/Ikpoba Okha Federal Constituency.

Agbonayinma who is also a music enthusiast and the owner of U&I Records made the call on behalf of the family on Friday, May 5.

He said Majek is a legend and Africa’s pride and thus cannot be allowed to be buried like an ordinary mortal.

Agboyayinma said: “ With the support of the family, the children, we are looking at how we can bring him to Nigeria to be buried here. This is going to cost quite a lot of money, especially with the challenge of COVID-19. So, we are trying to raise funds. The only account we have right now to be donated to, is the senior son’s account, Randy. Making this public is not my decision alone, some people came and said we should set this up. They said we should set up accounts in America and Nigeria. We want him to be buried here in Nigeria, his fatherland, and not in some foreign land like a chicken. In Nigeria, we are still trying to decide which account to use but the American account of the first son is ready and people are already paying into it. I must commend the response has been encouraging but we need more funds.”

“In the meantime, people can pay to the American account of the son. We just have to bring Majek home for proper burial,” he stated.

Below is Randy’s American account number:

“Rape is such a nasty act, that I will never ever take partake in it or be involved with anybody that rapes, I even find it difficult to say the word.

I forgive and I pray God forgives her too, but because this will also hurt people that look up to me, my family brands I work with and fans, I have decided to take legal actions to address this.

“I am willing as well to provide legal support to Yachit too so she has proper representation and to make sure there’s no thought of suppression or intimidation. My team also tried to contact her to understand exactly what her problems are but she labeled it suppression and trying to shut her up which is also false, this one weak me meyne but God Dey.

“To make it clear, I did not rape Yachit. I’m putting this out ahead of my legal team’s statement. Stay careful out there guys.”
