Nigerian rapper, CDQ has called out the organizers of the Headies Awards for awarding Mayorkun ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ instead of Naira Marley.
Recall that yesterday, the 14th edition of the annual Headies awards took place and Mayorkun was announced as the winner of the ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ category.
He won the award with his hit song “Geng”. He defeated Naira Marley, Reminisce, Rudeboy, Olamide, IVD and Zlatan to clinch the award.
CDQ has now called out the organizers of the award, accusing them of being biased for picking Mayorkun over Naira.
In his words, “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…”

In case he later deletes the tweet, attached below is a screenshot of his post…
According to Headies: the ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ is 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.
