This is a voting category for the artiste whose song has dominated the streets and have gone on to become an anthem, many of the songs in this category always come with a lingua or cliché directly from the artiste.
The artistes and songs that featured on this category this year are, Skillashi by Reminisce, Olamide’s Bobo, Mosquito Killer by Small Doctor, Masterkrafts monster hit, Indomie and Falz’s Hello Bae.
Reminisce: Reminisce’s Skillashi is a lingua laden song with some infusion of razz street talk many embraced but unlike his acceptability is questionable unlike his previous street effort, ‘Tesojue’ all the sam, we feel it deserved its nomination.
Olamide: for the umpteenth time Olamide’s Bobo featured on yet another category that it fully deserved. There is hardly anyone on the streets be it rich or middle class that cannot sing along the lyrics of Bobo and its funny dance step.
Small Doctor: The surprise nominee of this year’s headies is Small Doctor with his street delight single, ‘Mosquito Killer’ the singer is a strong contender to go home with the plaque. Because there is hardly anyone out there who could claim he doesn’t understand the streets favourite song and its many lingua.
Materkraft ft Olamide, CDQ and Davido indomie remix: Indomie remix is an expected feature in this category with its wide acceptability and introduction of wave making indigenous rapper, CDQ. Olamide and Davido did justice to the remix.
Falz the bahd guy Hello Bae: Hello Bae is a streets slang lovers across the country use to relate with one another. Pundits say the slang is more viral than the single itself no thanks to its many comedy skits. It deserved its nomination.
This is the closest category we’ve reviewed
so far, all the songs in this category were carefully selected and thus make it difficult for anyone to pick a winner they are all streets delight but it is a close one between Olamide’s Bobo and Small Doctor’s Mosquito Killer.
