OSG 2016 Recap: the controversial Headies Award – Olamide vs Don Jazzy

It was a very dramatic start to the year 2016 for the entertainment industry at the Headies 2015 award ceremony held on 2nd of January 2016. Two of the biggest names in the Nigerian music industry Don Jazzy and Olamide openly threw harsh words at each other over the outcome of the much converted  “Next Rated Award”.

The Next Rated Award which was arguably the biggest award of the night came with a lot of recognition (and the bonus of a brand new Hyundai Car).

The favorite for the award Lil Kesh (Signed under Olamide’s YBNL record) surprisingly failed to win the award as it went to Mavin artist Reekado Banks.

Apparently this angered Olamide so he stormed unto the stage when Adekunle Gold (Another YBNL artiste) received his award for Best Alternative artiste alongside the whole YBNL crew,

Olamide snatched the microphone from Adekunle Gold and angrily blasted Headies saying the award should have gone to Lil Kesh as he had back to back hit songs all year round. Olamide stated “Iyalaya anybody” and flipped off the whole hall before dumping the microphone on the stage and storming off  the venue with his crew.
