The recent statement released by the organisers of the Headies awards has revealed facts as to why fans favourite Lil Kesh did not emerge winner of the Next Rated category of the awards which had other nominees such as Cynthia Morgan, Korede Bello, Kiss Daniel and eventual winner Reekado Banks.

According to the statement by the organisers of the awards, 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 meaning Olamide and scores fans of Lil Kesh did him no good by not voting enough to make him emerge winner in the category he was nominated for.

The statement read, “Unfortunately, most times, Voting, Year In Review and Definitions Of Each Category of the Headies 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.”

It continued, “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.”
