The anticipation for this year’s headies is in top gear as top artistes in the country will battle for the prestigious plaque. As part our commitment to keep abreast of what to expect on the tension soak night, olorisugergal.com decided to an analysis of who we feel might emerge on the night.
We look at Hiphop World Revelation of the Year which is a voting category for the best new artiste who’s got an album to show for his/her efforts in the year under review.
The nominees for this year’s show are, Praiz’s Rich n Famous, Yemi Alade’s King of Queens and Skales’ Man of the year.
Praiz – Rich n Famous: Praiz’s ‘Rich n Famous’ is a class from the former MTN Project Fame runner-up who utilized his unique singing skills to the utmost. Known for his slow king of music which makes it hard for any artistes to gain prominence in the country but Praiz got some. We feel he deserves his nomination.
Yemi Alade – King of Queens: And again Yemi Alade’s ‘King of Queens’ featured on in another category. The Kissing crooner has demonstrated enviable work ethics to earn her the recognition she now enjoys having had a disappointing night on the awards stage last year for failing to go home with the coveted Next Rated award.
Skales –Man of the year: The turnaround in Skales’ career happened when made that move from EME to baseline music he has contributed so much that we can call him the ‘Man of the Year’ his debut album who has proven to the Nigerian music markets that he’s got more talents than what we saw at EME.
We feel it’s a close one between Yemi Alade and Skales because the two acts has many of their hits still making waves on the streets compared to Praiz. But we will go for Skales who has surprised many with his growth.
