Afro-pop artiste, Bella Shmurda has been slammed in some quarters after his grammatical error at the 14th edition of The Headies held on Sunday.
The ‘Cash App’ singer was nominated for the ‘Next Rated’ category of the award alongside Tems, Oxlade and Omah Lay with the ‘Bad Influence’ singer winning in that category.
During the red carpet segment, the presenter had asked Bella how he felt being nominated for the award and his chances of winning.
The ’ singer, however, stunned the red carpet host with his response.
“I came here, I came here with you, you know. I came here to do my thing. I didn’t came here for the award. I just came here to vibe,” he said.
“It’s good to be recognised, you know but it doesn’t matter if you don’t do well. It doesn’t stops you, you know. You just have to look forward and that’s what I’m doing. I have to look forward.”
The occurrence has since sparked reactions on social media, with many slamming the singer.
