Headies Organisers release statement on the drama that happened on awards night

Read the official statement from Headies Awards organization below...
We are proud of what we have achieved over the years. The Headies stage has birthed the careers of many artistes who are of A-list status today. We are also glad that we have reinstated pride and prestige into the winning of a locally organised music awards and, we have celebrated artistic ingenuity for 10 straight years; a feat no other group before us was able to achieve.
Every year, the screening team collate all creative materials released in the year in review and screen for nomination. This tedious process goes on for at least three months before the screening team comes out with a final list. The voting categories, such as 'Song Of The Year', 'Artist Of The Year', & 'Next-Rated' are left strictly for fans to vote and choose the winners. We wish to say categorically that we do not tamper with the outcome of the voting process. The limit of our involvement in this voting process is to advice the nominees to engage their fans and solicit for their votes. We do not accept any responsibility for failure on the part of the nominees or their record label, when they fail to do this.

Unfortunately, most times, Voting, Year In Review and Definitions Of Each Category, are generally taken for granted by many artists. We can also attest to, and hereby state categorically that, there is no evidence that any of the artistes aggrieved and vocal about their displeasure to the turnout of the award, voted in the 'Next-Rated' category, as our voting process captures email addresses and phone numbers.

We have ensured that the awards happened regardless of sponsorship, and that it gets better with each passing year, without giving excuses about challenges. We may not have gotten everything 100% right, but integrity has been our watch-word. The 109 Nigerian artistes that have won can attest to the fact that they did nothing different from those that have not. Awards by nature, are and will always remain, controversial except every nominee gets one.

We try to ensure that winners are within reach before announcing their category, as the whole essence of celebrating talents will be defeated without that.

While it is not out of place for an artiste or a party to vent their disapproval, we strongly condemn all kinds of improper conduct and the use of profanity on live television. In the same manner, we condemn provocative comments. In all, we see no use or reason for a disgruntled artiste or party to destroy valuable properties put in place to give them extra comfort before they perform or come on stage. This is totally unacceptable and will be addressed.

We congratulate all nominees and winners of The Headies 2015 and wish them a more successful 2016.

Liars!!! Can you revisit what dumb jazzy said? How did he know reekado was going to win. Headies told him to pull reekado out of Alibabas. Reekado was seated for long. You need to learn from grammy and BET. Engage the services of consulting firms or audit firms to make your voting process confidential. Go back to the drawing board. You have compromised headies and we ll boycott the coming ones this year.

I think it's expedient at this point to ask that u guys publish ur voting manifest if there's anything if that sort. In all I agree with them that they have done a good job thus far and I'm very proud of what d headies have been able to achieve. All those that want to sleep on their laurels, I hope use heard them? Once nominated, go and look for votes and stop partying all night hoping ur many disloyal fans will hand u d trophy. U Lie! They only feel u when they club to ur songs and after then, they are pursuing their daily bread. Ur destiny is in ur hands people, hold it firm and run with it. Bless y'all.

Enter your comment...first things, first. We are Human n will always b moved by Emotions, since both parties "claimed" to have apologies, let move, n be more educative to d public,on how n why dey should vote.cheers

Anonymous said...

Meaning Olamide wey dey shout like goat wey dem wan slaughter for sallah no even vote, judging from what d organisers have stated. Keep drinking away ur life instead of packaging ur business well. Life has some politicking to do with everything, u must learn to politick and get people on ur side if u must succeed in life. I guess the YBNL team just felt the work has been done by dropping vulgar club songs that people can party and then go chilling thinking the award will fall on their laps. Most Naija artitse don't have such occultic followership such that even if they don't canvass fir votes people will still vote for them. D only thing I think d organisers should do is to allocate like 80 percent to votes and then 20 percent to a panel of judges who will also decide who gets it based on certain criteria. Enjoyed on d drama while it lasted. God bless d headies and God bless Naija. Peace

Are they going to ban olamide and YBNL from attending any headies award show?

People on the streets meant to vote for likes of lil kesh don't have airtime on their phone to vote hence the reason why Mavin's boy Banks could get enough support to win the award. word for YBNL.... the street is broke, u need to follow the moneyyyy....

Thanks to headies for making this clarification, you can't always blame others for your failures looking inward will help.....I think everyone nominated for that category deserves the award but it will only come down to one winner and the rest just have to appreciate the artist have put In a great year also for me Rekardo banks is a worthy winner....it good they have all call a truce to what I think is a public show of shame from them both....let's support our own....headies have been fair over the years I think.

Whoever has won an award and talks ill or damages the reputation or property of the award hosts are damn ingrates. This award winning programme is a platform just to encourage performing artistes in their acts and promote them as well, but trust human beings, them go turn am to war. Anyway, I found the 'beef' totally dumb and uncalled for. If you didn't win this year, calm down and wait your turn, simple. l'm loving their address.

Like how HEADIES came out with their statement, STREET cannot take over Industry in this manner and attitude. If the STREET cannot vote online for their own NEXT RATED artist and the JAZZY family can do that and win the award, why is the STREET ranting, destroying and using F-words on live TV. remember how fans of Pasuma & CO. use to fight because they are STREET. when is the time for the street to take-over then we will know.

"There is no evidence that any of the artistes aggrieved and vocal about their displeasure to the turnout of the award, voted in the 'Next-Rated' category, as our voting process captures email addresses and phone numbers". In plain English, it means that even Olamide's number could not be found in the voting polls. Lol. So they didn't vote and they were busy accusing Mavins of bribery. Please headies let me know when u need a legal counsel. Sweet sweet case this would make. Local rappers....mtcheeew!!!

it has always been Don Jazzy's habit to buy awards... this is not the first time he would do that... there are records. Headies should henceforth show the no of votes by fans before announcing the winner. even Reekado knows that the award doesnt belong to him, Don Jazzy bought it! While i dont support Olamide's outburst, i want to address Don J to also grow up and be the Egbon that you are to all of us. Olamide cant be your Egbon! two of the most respectful people in the industry are Tuface, Olamide, we all know that... Olamide songs are by far doner than ur boys', you cant beat that!
