An upcoming artist comedian/Blaze FM, Anambra, OAP MC Akonuche on Instagram shared his opinion towards the just concluded Headies Awards
For the past 6 years iv been on radio iv come to realise DAT there is particularly a special type of segregation by d Eastern Nigerian musicians and westerners. But with critical analysis, I noticed DAT d Easterners contributed so much to dia own problem. It’s very hard for Igbo artistes who have made it support rising fellow artist .maybe bc d rising artists, however, don’t also support them.
Look at d sponsor’s of @the_headies, not even one big man or company from the d east, all sponsors r from Yoruba..why won’t d Igbo’s not be segregated n not given awards?? We make so much money n all in our mind is only business n nobody is thinking about improving entertainment in the east just very few like SIR EMEKA OFFOR had in d past contributed to entertainment.
Look at d #12thheadies last nit..from d red carpet, no Igbo anchor, no Igbo presented an award, except Ebuka who of course is a Yoruba personality, no Igbo artist performed n no Igbo artist won an award in all categories. Even SONG OF D YEAR DAT was supposed to go to MAD OVER U BY @runtown was given to a Yoruba Artist.
I work on d radio n I call tell u DAT MAD OVER U received high airplay from December 2016 when it dropped till mid-2017 when IF by DAVIDO came out.. But wot do I know? I’m just an ordinary OAP With dis analysis, I’m finding it difficult to accept DAT #Headies is a Nigerian award..
I feel its more of a YORUBA AWARD even though d Igbo’s contributed as d architect of their own problem n, therefore, I’m calling out d whole Igbo Artist to come out n support their uprising artists just like @davidoofficial is doing n let our rich Igbo men try n support entertainment… If u attack me on MY wall, be rest assured DAT u will be BLOCKED.. I JUST SAID MY MIND..
Guys, Is he making sense or looking for publicity?
