While Hip TV plans for the 11th edition of the Headies Awards, Davido reveals is plans to make a Kanye West move if one his newly signed artistes, Mayorkun is not awarded.
Recall that the first entertainment beef of 2016 was related to the Headies awards and it was between Olamide and Don Jazzy over Reekado Bank’s win. The same thing might repeat itself in the next edition if Davido decides to keep to his words.
Davido wants Mayorkun to beat every other nominee and go home with the Next Rated award in the Headies, just like Reekado beat Lil Kesh to it.
Meanwhile, in an exclusive chat with Thenetng, the CEO of Hip TV and organizer of the Headies Awards, Ayo Animashaun addressed Davido’s statement and also spoke about the reason for the delay of this year’s event.
“It’s all up to them, we would do what we need to do and where we need to take disciplinary actions, we will. You can’t really stop anybody from doing whatever they want to do or what if the person is under the influence and they do it and regret it the next minute, it’s all up to them but there are consequences for everything we do.
“You know it’s a big stage, a big platform and everyone is watching, people like to get noticed but you better be careful what you do because it’s not just about getting noticed it’s about how people see you afterwards.
“Well, we were not sure how we wanted to go about it this year, we were not sure of the format and when we were sure, we made the announcement,” he said about the delay. “We are not actually late, it’s just that people expected us to start making noise before now.
